10 Years On

Ten year challenge.  

Remember a few years ago when it was all the rage for the hairbrained  to have a   bucket of ice water poured over them  and post the video of the resultant scream? Now its the in-thing  to post a photo of yourself ten years ago and another of you now.  It's popping up all over instagram and damn if it wasn't on our news broadcast last night.  After the stories of political mayhem, economic ruin, turkish harrassment, attacks on old ladies and bombing police stations I suppose we needed a little light stupidity.  I have no idea whose photos they were.  Some american actress I had never heard of.  They were really scraping the barrel for a bit of drivel

But here I am searching archives for a ten year old photo of myself which is even passable.  Back then they were all digitals on the big old (ancient) desk top computer so I've been taking grainy photos of blurry pics 

Do I have to smile??

Yeh, I was definitely younger ... ten years younger in fact

Now, I'm mastering the selfie.  Actually I'm not mastering it all and avoid the bloody selfie like I would avoid the devil ...

Far more realisitc.

Horrible hair day but great platter of shrimps/prawns!


  1. I've only seen it once, on IG...! I must follow a lot of *non-hip* people. -grin-

    Ahhhhh, yes, I remember that pour a bucket of water over yourself, or someone pour ice water, over you.

    Stuck in my mind, is an actress, who was (OF COURSE) very "Green." So she poured what she assured us, was bath water, over her head. Ughhhh... Can you imagine taking such non-care of eyes, nose, ears?!?!?

    Hmmmmmm, a 10 year old pic of me... Being like you, and avoiding pics of myself, like the plague usually... Plus not saving my pics, I don't think I'll be joining in.

    But then, as I said above, I must follow a bunch of stoggy people, who don't do such things. >,-)))))))))))

    That, and I am not active on IG anyway. My time is taken up, with blogging.

    Yes, you can come and visit and have chicken and dumplings, and read cozy books, and watch snow fall, out the patio window, and drink wine!!!!!!! :-)

    We have hot water heat, which depends on electricity to run, of course. And we have a gas fire place. But since it's not a new one, which are covered and blowing heat out into room, it's mainly pretty. And we don't use it, in winter, as it simply sucks heat out of the room.

    So maybe you'll stay home, after all. :-)

    Sooooo grrrrreat to see lots of pics of you! 'Cause you never show them!


  2. I can honestly say that I don't think I've seen a picture of you on your blog! It's nice to put a face to the words! I don't think you've changed much at all in ten years! -Jenn

  3. The world is so small now, here too a lot of talk about the 10-year challenge.I like the last photo, the joy of life.

  4. Greece was on our news today.

  5. As coffeeontheporchwithme said I don't think I have seen a photo of you before. Looking good.

  6. As with Ice Buckets, I shall ignore this fad too.

  7. I never did the ice bucket challenge, seemed a bit silly at the time, I couldn't find one on facebook of me 10 years ago as I don't think I had joined up at that point. However that plate of shrimps looks alot more interesting than facebook stuff.

  8. Lovely to see you! I like being able to put a face to the person I am 'chatting' with in blogworld.
