I was trying to find relevant stuff to fill in the gaps on my June napkin, and I came across this. Relevant, of course, because of the Tour De France being in Yorkshire. It was taken from a cycling magazine leaflet (see below), which fell from Mr. S’s Guardian.
I’m really sorry to say that I don’t know who did the illustration. I like the way the inside leg is not tanned, nor under the arm.
I dedicate it to Vincent Harding, keen (understatement) cyclist and all round decent bloke and good egg. Vincent was one of the first people who followed me on Twitter, back when I first started interfering with social media and entertaining everyone with my accidental slapstick. Took me ages to figure out what a DM was. Anyway, despite Vincent following me because he thought I was a cycling fanatic (my name was Upcyclist at the time), he was, and continues to be, very supportive. Thanks, Vincent.
If you have not been following my napkin work, and have no idea what I am talking about, then read on (if you have been following, then I am about to repeat myself) and I will explain. The idea, at first, was to sew a word onto an old napkin for each day of the month. A word with some relevance for that particular day. However, as usual, I didn’t stick to my own brief. ‘One word’ soon became ‘a few words’, or sometimes a picture. The aim is to end up with a memento of the month. If you look at the cloud to the right, or at the end of the post, and click on the ‘napkin’ heading, you will be able to view notes about the other words.
Have a good week,
P.S. We are having building work done in August, due to finding loads of rotten floorboards (a twenty year leak we knew nothing about when we moved here, a few years ago) and asbestos. Anyway, we will be living in one room with a microwave, which we have yet to purchase. Meanwhile, I have to pack everything away, including the computer.
