Rudy on a pedestal. The 2017 calendar cover.
JANUARY start the year with a bang!
FEBRUARY Rudy on the Mall, often reserved for visiting foreign dignitaries, hogged by a bulldog on this occasion
MARCH ‘With paws like this….!’ This is ‘Cleopatras needle’ the popular name for each of three Ancient Egyptian obelisks re-erected in London, Paris, and New York City during the nineteenth century. The obelisks in London and New York are a pair, and the one in Paris is also part of a pair originally from a different site in Luxor, where its twin remains. This one is on Victoria Embankment on the Thames. On 4 September 1917, during World War I, a bomb from a German air raid landed near the needle. In commemoration of this event, the damage remains unrepaired to this day and is clearly visible in the form of shrapnel holes and gouges on the right-hand sphinx. Pretty interesting huh? I love Egyptian stuff…

“Ziggy played for time,
jiving us that we were Voodoo
The kids were just crass,
He was the naz
With God given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar.”
NOVEMBER ‘Often imitated but never equalled’ but better repeated 🙂 Abbey Road
DECEMBER ‘Oh no it’s the end of another year! and they still haven’t let me in!’
