And it's all written down in his diary 🎶

  5. Human behaviour -- as you see in all novels and diaries and documentaries: not much change...
    I often gaze at old portraits and enjoy in my mind to take off the cap of a woman from middle ages or the fur or so - and try to put her into modern clothes - the effect is stunning: even the faces haven't change that much (I do not speak of the fish-lips today - they are "new" :-)

    1. It shows that we haven’t changed in hundreds of years doesn’t it Britta ?
      I have always thought that the eyes in old portraits look really bulgy .... as if they have a problem with their thyroid !!! .... apart from that, I can see that it could look stunning ! Why on earth anyone wants those fish-lips is beyond me !!! XXXX

  9. I don’t like to knock the young but I think that they are so used to going here there and everywhere that they just can’t stay in !!! Will be over to check out your new post. XXXX

  10. We're in agreement regarding the young and the way they are turning a blind eye to the danger of Covid to we elderly members of society. Perhaps they don't have parents and grand parents - that's why they are also out there wreaking havoc over just about anything else they can come up with!

    That's an amazing quote from Mr. Pepys in 1664!

    Hugs dear Jackie.

    1. As I said above, I don’t like blaming the young for everything but I do think some think they are entitled to everything and are disregarding the rules. I think there are some selfish people who will just do what they want ... as in 1664 !!!
      Hugs back Mary XXXX
