Sunday Postcard - Celebrate

The photo is of my uncle (by marriage). He was married to my mother's sister. He was what we ethnic Irish call a "blatherskite" (someone given to voluble and empty talk). He knew everything about everything (according to "himself"). As you can see he also had small beady eyes and a pencil thin moustache. Never liked him. Now I can have some fun at his expense!!

Top hat and bow tie by Robyn England and balloons by Shabby Princess.

You're mean LOL, love the boots.
And I know what you're talking about! Sounds just like all my uncles.

He's gotta be turning over in his grave!!! Those red boots are a hoot, Marie, and I really like your background. It looks quite "cut and paste". This one's a winner!!

This is wonderful! Your uncle is sure more fun in effigy. I love his KC and the Sunshine Band boots and his top hat! I hope to see him again in many compromising positions.

What a hoot Marie, looks like your uncle (by marriage) could be a match for Mabel. I hope we see much more of him.

Lurve those boots.
