Sepia Saturday 225 : 26 April 2014

Florida Memory Stream On Flickr Commons

Ah, I remember it well. Get out your smart threads, polish up your brogues, stand around that imposing jukebox and spin those old favourites : "Summer Holiday", "V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N", or maybe "Viva Espana". Yes, it can only mean one thing : I am about to go on holiday again. But, worry not, who is looking after things whilst I am away but my fellow administrator - Marilyn. And the theme image Marilyn has chosen for Sepia Saturday 225 (post your posts on or around Saturday 26 April 2014) shows a group of smart young things stood around a jukebox. If you are theming this week there are endless possibilities - jukeboxes, music, the 1950s are just a few suggestions. All you have to do is to post your post, link your link, and visit your sepia friends. Easy-peasy ...... itsy-bitsy, yellow polka-dot bikini (control yourself, Alan) But before you pack your bag and fly off to Spain (oh, no, that's me isn't it!), here is a preview of what is in store over the next week or two.

Sepia Saturday 226 : 3 May 2014 
After several changes due to sepia confusion, we are left with May Day, Dancing, Folk Traditions and Very Silly Poses

Sepia Saturday 227 : 10 May 2014
Alphabets, sisters, wicker/garden furniture, creepers(!)


But that is all for the future. This week we are turning the clock back to the 1950s. Insert your coin, choose your record, press that sepia button and get posting. Now, where was I? Oh I know  "Leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again ...."

50s style fun

Another perfect theme to let me introduce some cowboy musicians who could be playing on that jukebox.

And a special sepia bonus too.

I was still young but had Older Brothers through which I experienced the 50s fun, fashion, and music.

I've tried everything and I just can't comment on wordpress. Does anyone else have this problem?
I wanted to comment on genepenn's post which was on wordpress and it just wouldn't let me. I've tried changing passwords, etc. No luck. So if you happen to see this, genepenn-thank you for your comment and I really enjoyed your post. I felt bad for the two with the age-related problems.
