Beautiful Boys

Every now and then I pick up old photographs from car boots or charity shops.  They are usually pre-1940 and always of people.

These three little boys have been in my possession for a number of years.  The photo was taken by E.I. Ellery of Truro, Newquay and Perranporth in Cornwall and the writing on the back says,

Wishing you a Very Happy Xmas
Horace Eugene and Thew(?)

I love that the youngest has his cuddly toy with him
and the eldest looks as though he may have been given his daddy's pocket watch for the occasion.  His body language is unmistakably that of the big brother in charge!

What a shame there's no surname to help find out more about them.  

I just hope they all made it through the war.

Elsie decided to go her own way during our walk this morning.

She dived into a thicket after a scent or something and disappeared for over an hour.

The place was deserted, I was frozen and almost in tears when she suddenly came running from the other end of the path.  

She was filthy after digging and putting her head down rabbit holes and looked thoroughly pleased with herself.

She went straight home for a bath.

She's in disgrace.

I'm sorry I haven't updated for a long time.  From September onwards I had a lot of things going on and something had to give.  I'd rather spend time reading all your blogs than keeping up with my own.  Now things have calmed down a bit (excluding missing dogs) I may update more often - that is, as long as I've got anything worth blogging about.
(but it was good to get this morning's upset off my chest).
