Hit by memories

Weekly photo challenge “Nostalgia“.

All in all, it may simply be about our good memories.
The good old black sheep was the queen of the property at my parents home..
The queen passed away peacefully last december, age of seventeen.
Average lifetime of sheeps are about 10 years.
Better watchdog than dogs, very watchful and aware of all irregularities.
When I got out of the car in the driveway, the queen immediately recognized my voice.
Expected a friendly chat as the first in the queue – just like me talk every day.
The Queen’s favorite food was the acorns from the oak on the corner.
This year is a fabulous acorn-year – it would have been a dream year for the black queen.
It is pure nostalgia.

Ticket to the good old days

London and the englishmen have a reputation for valuing traditions
the other day (April 12) they created an experience for us who visited their city.
Modern times was paused and the good old days were back for a moment
on route 22 – which goes around Liverpool station, Hyde Park and Piccadelly Circus
was run with old double-deckers as replacements for the new modern double-deckers.
The occasion was probably a 75th anniversary – pure nostalgia.
