It's taken me 50 years to reach a half century...no wonder I was never selected for the county cricket team!

and use the word 'snifter' unironically.

Fifty is the new thirty, so sixty must be the new forty, right?

Hello everyone!

Checking in after a long time not corresponding; my apologies.
Health is still an issue, and this summer was some sort of ... apex, I think.

During that time, it occurred to me
dafuq are you waiting for, woman?
I've got parts of outfits that have been waiting for now close to three years,
always with one excuse or another for not making them.

(ok - I admit - not owning a sewing maching is a pretty good excuse)
But the primary one was hoping to lose weight.
I didn't imagine myself in these years resembling Mrs Doubfire -
I'd had my heart set on Lauren Bacall!

This past summer was a close enough call,
that combined with other events (friends, etc passing)
has shifted that attitude and for me -
it's now or never.
I'm an Art Major - when ELSE am I going to have the chance
to be completely Avant Garde with no explanations needed or even required?

I might well be the first "Mrs Doubtfire looking steam bag lady,"
but it's time.
Now or never - crack on!

Erm. Slowly, however.
I've got some recovering yet to do.
Hope you are all well, and my warmest welcome to all who arrived in my absence!

Welcome back, barb dwyer! Your absence noticed & your presence missed. it seems to have been that kind of year for many Steamgeezers, but I have been reliably informed that it is only 14 Fridays until Christmas - better start on that list!!

While I'm 5 yrs too young to be in this club, this is also a club for people whose youngest members danced to Disco when they were around 15 yrs of age or older...

Saturday Night Fever (1977) Trailer


And for people who remember "Logans Run" and know who Jenny Agutter is (isn't she hot??)

or who were at least 14 years of age when Star Wars first hit the cinema:

Or saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang On release at their local picture house.

Yep, only 4 but I remember the car (probably a replica) sat in the foyer and was so excited.

Or around that age was taken to a theatre to see one of these (I'm not sure if the age rating was in effect back then in the late 60s... maybe...)

I think the first sci-fi movie I watched in the cinema that moved me as a youngster was Silent Running (1972) with Bruce Dern, huey duey and louie.

Still a classic IMHO and even now can bring a tear to my eye 40 odd years on.

The final scene with the last robot holding the battered old watering can caring for it all and Joan Baez singing.......I'm starting to well up now thinking about it Roll Eyes

This film is way before its time (global warming, save the planet, recycling etc etc)

So much for the ruffty-tuffty biker builder in me eh?
