This posting is for James, Blues's Dad
...to Sis for sending me not only a wonderful selection of photos of a small part of her toilet collection, but also for the parcel that was delivered this morning. The one that has been travelling by snail-mail since the first week of January and we has just about given up on!
The long-awaited tea bags finally reached their final destination. I was very much tempted to eat the surprise hot-cross bun that I discovered between the leaves, but I resisted. It was very stale having a eat-by-date of January 7th! Wherever has it been for a month?
The first pictures in the series above show the ceramic toilet with flush that I created, with technical assistance from a friend, for Big Sis's forthieth birthday.
After the home-made flusher comes a picture of the toilet-seat mirror, complete with shelf, that we found for her here in Nürnberg. The history of the others I don't really know, some I have found at car-boot sales and in toyshops, and I think that the majority are presents from family and friends. I suspect that the po with the feather is from our Mum.
Perhaps there are more toiletries in store
I seem to remember that Andrew Sutton said in his "searching for the Gents" posting, that today is the day that he would be making a visit to the Palace of Westminster. The toilets of this building, he said, are familiar to him, no chance then, he thought, of getting lost and being bullied into thinking about who he is.
Andrew, I hope you behaved according to the Palace code and wore your badge for all and sundry to see, thus avoiding questioning your identity.
