you should be able to figure it out...
I just received a dvd with scan of about 500 of my old slides and found this little gem among them - I'd completely forgotten about it. Taken with an old Pentax SLR, not a serious compact by any stretch.

Football coaches are not the same thing in the UK as in the US. As an American traveling in the UK in 1981, my young addled mind found this to be hilarious. I had a football coach in high school I'd definitely apply this sign to!

John, great catch - that poor, lone, lorn, last bag... I hope its owner took it home.

Bill, Marion appears to be feeling thoughtful. I think this is wonderful image. Thanks for the words - it's a little difficult for me to read the script due to the lighting. Priceless line!

BB - the lady is "having a fag" ............... fag = cigarette - a charming site and most un appealing

"Pret a porter" is an expression used it France a lot on signs for "take away food" i.e. Pizza pret a porter

( in this case I think it means "ready to wear" - but google says "lingerie sexy clothing" - but I am not an experts in these matters - the mind boggles)

(obviously I have changed the telephone number in case any of our gentlemen forum members were thinking about Christmas presents)

Wonderful thread - such a mixture from head scratching humor through and to the inspirational and the arresting serious.

Keep up the great work!
