Beverley United Band  1910
BANDS  :  MUSIC  :  INSTRUMENTS

There are some Sepia Saturday theme images which have a Sepian's name written all over them. No, I don't mean Beverley, but I do mean our good friend Mike Brubaker who has been a loyal supporter of Sepia Saturday ever since the beginning and who has fascinated, educated and entertained us over many years with his posts about bands and musicians. If ever a theme image was perfect for Mister Mike to work his magic on, this is it. Whoever you may be, if you want to participate in Sepia Saturday this week, post your post on or around Saturday 30th June and add a link to the list below.

And here are the next two Sepia Saturday theme images.

For Sepia Saturday 420 simply post a post on or around Saturday 26th May 2018 and add a link to the list below.

Sepia Saturday 417


The trouble with being involved in Sepia Saturday for so long is th at my memory has gone a little sepia. I forgot to put this weeks prompt up before going on holiday and therefore I am. Trying. To do so now with one foot in the Mediterranean Sea and a. Tablet full of sand. It is quite appropriate given this weeks prompt. My limited WiFi signal seems to go in and out with the waves and therefore I will avoid all the normal chitchat- you are well familiar with it by now. Things will return to normal next week.
