I am paying a visit to the Jurassic couast. Well in theory anyway. In reality we are on a very nice campsite somewhere about 5 miles above the coast in our motorhome and visibility is about 10 yards due to very low cloud. Forecast for rest of the day is awful so looks as if we’re staying put.
Under my table is a big big box of patterns which I brought to sort out if I got a moment. I have a moment. I’m going to do it :slight_smile:

Love the Jurassic coast, I spent a happy geology field trip down there when I was 17. I still remember the reassuring words of the geology teacher, *If you hear rumbling, run towards the sea!" :wink:

I stull don’t get why St George is ours in any case, he was Turkish I think.

Lol! Well, Greek I think! Maybe the dragon was English? Or maybe I’m thinking of Welsh… :wink:

according to wiki he was born in roman palestine but had a greek dad. he’s also patron of loads of things including, bizarre but true, sufferers of syphilis.

Wouldn’t mind a pair of those knee pads for wearing in the garden :slight_smile:

hadn’t even realised that posting the link added the pic - fine figure of a chap, isn’t he?

(Little Ramstudio) #16

Did they have Twink home perm kits back then?

(Nifty) #17

he also seems to be wearing madonna’s pointy metal bra (was it madonna?)

(Little Ramstudio) #18

More nipple guard than full brassiere.

Remarkably camp! And yet also rather doubtful… is that at the mention of syphilis, maybe? :blush:
