A post inspired by impossiblebebong at My own private Idaho The challenge being, to open to the first photo of oneself and describe the story of that graphic.
The above photo, was the one opened. I am the one at the rear … the horse’s ass? My brother in law holding the reins, of a wire sculpted horse. Looks quite realistic? Doesn’t it? I was visiting my sister. For her daughter, my niece’s wedding. Zoe to Stephen. After the wedding week-end, we visited this place for its gardens. Which were quite lovely.
Mom and sister are seated centre left. The House and Gardens, were at a place called Mottisfont Abbey. Situated on the old Winchester to Canterbury pilgrims’ route. In medieval times it was stopping point https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mottisfont_Abbey . In early 20th century under private ownership it became a wealthy artists colony, of sorts.
The horse pictured. Was sculpted out of wire used atop thatched roofs. To hold down the thatch. We found it very realistic, as most other visitors. It was situated in the old stable area along with the tea room. Will and I just had to “ham it up”.
You look colorful and quite presentable. Reminds me of Kenny R. and I like Kenny R. Those white hair!
White hair…?? What white hair? My mirror does not show me that! It shows me wisdom, well earned ;-] Truly, I am blessed with and by them. Thanks for your nice words. Cheers Jamie
At least white hair becomes you. I don’t know what I will do when mine turned white for I don’t believe in coloring my hair.

Flattery will get you everywhere … ;-]
Neither do I, obviously. I did once buy some stuff, but decided I was not going to comprimise principles. You appear to have gorgeous brown hair. It will likely turn a nice white? I embrace the grey. It is my crown.
Use of tea, or rosemary herb, is said to keep the lustre. I use almond oil, to keep the hair in good condition. I’ve also read coconut oil is beneficial? Cheers Jamie
