Sepia Saturday Week 45

15th October : This post should have automatically gone up yesterday! It seems that I still need to improve my skills with the scheduled posting option!!! I will schedule the next three calls to go up earlier in the week. If all else fails people will just have to improvise.

We are having a short break from the normal style of Sepia Saturday announcements to accommodate my forthcoming holiday. If all goes according to plan this should be published on Thursday 14th October. I don't leave to go on holiday until the following week so it gives me a chance to fine-tune the system if these pre-prepared posts don't appear as they should. We don't actually leave until the following week (the 21st) so I will still be around in order to post my own Sepia Saturday offerings and comments on others until then. 

If Blogger is behaving itself, this is a call for participants to take part in Sepia Saturday 45 on or around Saturday 16th October. The rules - or rather the lack of rules - are the same as ever : use an old image (it doesn't have to be in sepia) to tell us something about yourself, your family or anything else that will interest or entertain us. Add a link to your post to the Linky List and then try and visit as many of the other participants as possible. Fingers crossed, let's hope it all works.

First again this week - I must get out more ;-)

Just uploaded my entry this week which features a sepia guarantee for a projector bought at the Oriental Stores in Aden some time in the 1960's.

Argh! Mr. Linky grabbed my site URL, not my post URL, which is this. Sorry!

(Word verification is "padecal." I guess if you have a padecal and a madecal, you get a whole family of babydecals to stick on your car's windows.)

Hello Allan, I am not posting this week again, as I am bringing awareness of the Billions of people who die due to lack of clean water. Hope to see you next week.
I love your dear lady pictured above. She is so sweet and kind. looks german or european..

will be off line & not posting for a few more weeks as we journey to PA and tend to things for my 92 year old Uncle Carl. He had some falls and was admitted to hospital for tests, nothing identified, but it confused him, so now he is coming back around and we hope to have him released from the Skilled facility where he is getting heavy therapy & back to his personal care home. While in PA I'll regroup wih many old schoolmates and may get other ideas of Sepias to come....I may do some reading online to see what all gets shared meantime!

The fact that we can write and set a future date for the post to appear is a wonderful feature. So WHY am I always doing these things at the last second? Thanks so much for continuing to host our Saturdays and enjoy your holiday!

Well I like this improvisional (? word) week. I am slow moving and confused myself, recovering from a stinky fall on Thursday. Love the picture here.

Vacation and life have gotten in the way, but I'm back with a find from vacation in the Sierra Nevada mountains. A handsome fella with an unknown past.

I had to share this photo I just got in the mail today.

Not much time, so here is a quick one. It is a sort-of follow up to last week's post. "Young Love."
