This week on Sepia Saturday,
the prompt shows kids reading books in a library.
I've showned you before
my mom reading Life magazine in the 1960s,
my dad reading the Pie magazine in the 1950s,
and a book he helped printing in the 1970s,
and even a book my mother favored in her youth.
Even my maternal grandparents pretending to read [in the 1930s].
I think I did cover that topic.
Libraries were never much of a destination of choice for me
as I like brand new stuff to won,
not something you borrow after so many have handled it before.
I'm not phobic about germs but I don't care to touch what others have before me.
But there is a library which I've visited on a few occasion,
the one at my High School,
but I have no pictures of that.
I took a look at their website
and how things have changed.
A lot of things are on computers,
something we didn't have in the 1970s...
Oh, how I wish!!!
But speaking of school,
I've shown you before my school group pics from Elementary School with the Sisters of St Anne
where I asked you if you could find tiny me.
Some did well!!
Now for my individual pics!!
Just a series of bad prints which I had to fix dramatically with Photoshop
because the photographer did shoddy work here.
Just enjoy these and even make fun of me,
what with all of those uniforms and bad haircuts.
I can take it!!!
(I'm on theme!!)
I was good in Geography and History!!!
The future James Bond?!?
I think not...
though I do like a good Martini!!
Black Watch was our color back then.
Is it still?
For more reading material,
you can head out to
where you're bound to find aplenty!!
In an odd twist of circumstances,
I did receive this letter this week from the
Their letter states that I borrowed three DVDs in 2006[!!!],
and never returned them...
but if they never processed this
and someone took them before they could,
then this leaves me as the culprit,
which I'm definitely not.
I subscribed at the instigation of a friend who's a big fan of the place.
I did go a few times but it's been a long time since.
You can imagine my surprise getting this letter,
especially since it was sent under my old [legal] name...
I don't know how I'm gonna get out of this situation
but I do intend to contest this.
I may not have gone inside for a long time,
but I did visit the exterior
as it is a large structure that commands attention.
This pic dates back to 2010.
This sculpture is near the main entrance of the library and is called
ESPACE FRACTAL (2004),
I took these pics last Spring.
there is a urban garden...
I took these in 2011.
Looks like I'll be going back to the library,
against my wish...
to resolve this situation.
