Hunky Dory at 65/Anglophile

Ah, yes, I am an Anglophile. Ever since The Beatles!
I saw an article about the best English pubs to visit for Christmas in The Guardian and immediately had an idea for a scene.
Here are the pictures from The Guardian. Wouldn't you want to have a pint in either place?

Little Nan's in Deptford

The Flask in Highgate 

Well, my version is pale in comparison, but I like it. And the action figures ARE all British. There's Doctor Who, Rose Tyler and Martha Jones from Doctor Who and Stephen Hart and Nick Cutter from Primeval. And, of course, Oscar Wilde from himself.

Getting served by Oscar Wilde...that's wild!

Quite the literary pub.

And there's tea.

Cozy fire.

Hunky Dory at 65/Walking

Walking is my thing. I love the way it makes me feel alive and I get to enjoy nature. I have done several 10ks and one half marathon. 

So, here's my mini-take on it.
Wish I were this thin and young and I wish
I could do my walking in Provence. Not
sure about the boots.

Here's the real me at a 10k in Apalachicola, Florida.

And one in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
