Decisions decisions

Well, it is not one I am in a position to make, but I wouldn't mind being so. Another great photo from Shorpy.com  Ok, ok, you have nagged me enough. The one with his back to the camera. Nice face and good hair. Have I missed something that might make me change my mind?


Coles supermarket is in the news, accused of screwing over suppliers. While their advertising campaign Down Down, Prices are Down, has been very successful, the participating old pop group Slade should be aware of the saying, lie down with dogs and get up with fleas. Nevertheless, how Slade used set my teenage hormones racing. I am now embarrassed that I liked them as I can't see anything attractive about them. But I can remember why I found Peter Frampton attractive now I look at the album cover some decades later. I'll say nothing about the album name that went over my teenager head.

I shan't google Frampton to see what he now looks like. I've already had my disappointment for the day by goggling Scottish actor Iain Glen who I recall as being handsome and hot.

  3. Frampton's golden locks are gone nowadays. Then again mine, which were never golden anyway, are gone as well.

  4. Some dreams should never be revisited.
    And yes on the Slade front. Nice to know that in some things at least my taste has improved.

  5. It's a horrible truth, we all get old and looks do not improve with age.

  6. People are at their most gorgeous from, say, 18-28. These are the years when traditionally speaking it was important to find life partners and spread their genetic gifts around.

    Therefore I suppose it doesn't matter too much if a 50 year old looks like an old leather boot who drank too much booze. The only loss is in our memories *sad sigh*.

    1. Hels, really, you should not be describing me in public like that.

  7. Think I'll go and google Peter Frampton...
    I heard about the Coles thing and I'm not surprised. I was disappointed enough when working to see the amount of shelf space going for their own brands while customers wanted the brands they'd always bought and now couldn't find. Many went across the road to a rival supermarket, some of them because I told them to.

    1. I get infuriated by that River. Put their own brands if they must, but don't take away established products. I think Coles is worse than Woolworths at that.

    2. Yes, they are. It's impossible to take pride in your work in these situations. I took pride in the WAY I worked, but not in the company.

  8. So of course I had to have a look at today's Frampton and honestly, I think he looks quite good. I wouldn't tell him no anyway. :)

    1. Rubye, ok, I have looked now. Not too bad, but certainly not an object of lust.

  9. The young men in the photo have that 'I can take on the world' look about them - confident and enjoying that stage of their life. It's a look a lot of our young men (I don't mean youth of today) don't seem to have. Most seem to be engrossed in themselves rather than the world around them.
    On a lighter note - do you know what those things are on the floor in front of the 'boys'? When I first looked I thought they were handbags lol

    1. I know what you mean Cathie, but I also know some really great young men who on first glance may seem self obsessed or phone obsessed, but they aren't.

      So, what are those things. Megaphones, no, containers for liquids? And what is the purpose of the small wooden mallet?

    2. My guess is that they are rowers, that the two more slightly built ones are coxes (hence the megaphonish things) and the mallet and the little bung-ish thing is probably something to do letting water out of the boat after it is out of the water.

    3. Of course they are Marcellous, megaphones for yelling out 'stroke, stroke, stroke'.

  10. I googled Peter Frampton too. He's older of course, but very nice looking. He's obviously taken care of himself.

    1. River, sometimes I think 'taken care of himself' is a phrase for being a boring goody two shoes.

  11. Hahahaha! Somewhere Peter Frampton is probably wondering why his site is getting so much attention all of a sudden.. it's a shame you looked, me too.. I would have preferred to remember him otherwise also :) the Shorpy shot is brilliant!
