Beefeaters Photo Gallery

I just want to complement Captain George (retired) on the gallery. I have been enjoying both the pictures and the captions he has added.
Great job.

Where were you on Tuesday?

Keys to the Tower of London drawbridges were stolen last week but nothing else was stolen, officials reported on Monday.

LONDON — A rare security breach has been reported at the Tower of London, one of the British capital’s most famous landmarks.

Authorities say the Crown Jewels and other unique artifacts are safe but that locks had to be changed after an intruder broke in and stole some keys. Officials said Monday the keys were stolen from a sentry box at the site. They would have provided access to the Tower’s drawbridges and some other areas.

Authorities say the keys were stolen last Tuesday and a police investigation into the theft is under way. A Historic Royal Palaces statement said security procedures had not been properly followed.

The Tower is guarded by Yeoman Warders, commonly known as Beefeaters.

Where’s the Info?

Where’s the map?

Where’s the schedule?

Where’s the beef?

Getting Close – Tick…tick…tick…

Looking forward to seeing all in New Market this year. Last year they had the new Tower Stage. This year the Globe Stage has been rebuilt. Huzzah!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

 

That’ll do, dog. That’ll do.

Spring has sprung

Or my back is at least. Yard work all weekend. went through 10 bags of garden soil. West side flower bed ½ weeded. (still have half to go) Amaryllis have already shot their wad and only 2 moon flower plants are coming back. Planted flowers and seeds saved from last year’s moon flowers.

Front of house now has two beds of flowers. And removed a ½ ton of bricks from the flowerbed, not sure what previous owners were thinking.

East side reclaimed the herb garden, removed another ½ ton of bricks and previously unknown about pavers from the area. Still don’t know what the previous owners were thinking but now have enough bricks to build the walkway and patio for a bench in the back yard corner.

Planted tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, basil and rosemary. Filled 5 hanging baskets of color for the back yard.

Productive but aching.

New Year New Hair

I am a little shell shocked. I decided to do a big trim on my hair for the new year, about 4-5 inches. The stylest suggested since I consider donating it. I said, “What a great idea.” She said she would need to take a little more to get the length for donation. I said okay.

I haven’t had my hair this short since I was 11 years old!:O It is about chin length. Fritz says he likes it and “Cute.” I keep looking in the mirror wondering who that is….%)
