My Five for Today:.....

[Click on any picture for large size view] -[Back button gets you back to the blog]
One: (Feline Friday entry) Little Girl, what's your name?
Really, I don't know if this is a girl or boy cat. It liked me and got up when I climbed the stairs. When I left the cat was waiting for me. I did take its water cup in for a refill because she was about out and the water had some trashy stuff that had blown in.
 
Two: A lot of progress has been made on what I think will be our new pole dancing studio on Hwy 1097 since we have been gone.
 
I probably should take some lessons when it is finished.  They had hoped to open by September 15.
 
The picture below on the left is how it looked when we left for London.  On the left side might go the advanced pole for advanced dancing.  Then there can be seven other poles to the right of the tall one so that with using the advanced pole eight poles would be available for group lessons.
 
There might be an advantage in taking flying trapeze lessons instead.  That would be in London again, at Regents Park (see blog below for our boat ride there).  But because of my left knee joint replacement I probably shouldn't be doing the trapeze.  But most of you readers have both options open for you.

 
 
Three:  As much as I have been to Regent's Park I have not used the rest rooms.  If I had then I would have shown you the inside of one.  I imagine they are quite nice.
 
This one is in Regent's Park.  There is another gate for the ladies.
 
Below are a couple of shopping pictures.  On the left is High Street for St. Johns Wood where Karen and family live.  High Street is similar to the Main Street in the U.S. towns and cities.
 
On the right is KP playing with the Channel bags.  They are nice bags but I have no idea what came in them.  I doubt it was cheap.

 
 
   
 
On the left is a small crowd going to church.  This is the All Souls Church (link) in downtown London, at Langham Place and Regents Street, north of Oxford Street.  Karen and family attend there.  KP is liking the children's church a lot.  It has an excellent attendance with the upstairs almost always filled and sometimes there is standing room only. The church is of Anglican Evangelical denominational affiliation.
 
The picture on the right I took from an upstairs window in Karen and Billy's building.  The houses would be leading into Abbey Road.  They look small nestled in amongst the apartments but they are actually very large homes.  And very expensive, in the millions of British Pounds.

Four: This couple, Matt and Claire Abrey, are driving down Piccadilly Street in London.  They may have been returning from the filming in London of an episode for Top Gear.  There were £200million of British cars around for this. (link).

I could not find much about specific car mentioned.  In races the Abreys enter it in the pre-1920 class. (road rally link picture)  I was not sure exactly looking to find more.
.

Five: One of these homes belongs to Paul McCartney.  I believe it is the one on the left after being completely remodeled and given a face lift.

This video may help you. One hint is the brick pillars, now painted white, used for  holding the entrance gate.

This should finish my London visit pictures for a bit.  Next posting should pick up again with our Venice-to-Black Sea-to-Athens cruise pictures.

I always loved your photos here, Sir Jim! ;o)
 
Great pictures, Mr. Jim. I love the cat; she is beautiful!
 
awww what a sweet kitty! and I enjoyed all your photos- thanks for sharing and have a great Feline Friday!
 
cute cat,and some great photos.
 
I hope that cutie pie cat has a forever home. I'm sure it does.

Have a terrific Feline Friday. :)
 
It is such fun following your travels, your FF Cat is gorgeous and I think introducing KP to Chanel now is just asking for trouble LOL-very sweet photo.
 
You made such wonderful new memories, and the good thing is that you will be back in the future.
 
I love how you always keep an eye out for the cats, Jim, it seems they find you too. You have a heart for critters, and it shows! All of the London photos are fantastic, you make it look like such an awesome place to visit, and even better with tour guides who live there! Let's hope that KP doesn't take a real liking to those Chanel bags as she grows older, that's some pretty high-dollar Christmas shopping! :-))
 
Cute lil' feline friend you found there Jim. :)
 
I love that cat. All we have are striped here. It's harder to count them when they're all one color.
 
Looks like the cat likes to have his/her back scratched.

Have a great weekend!

Steve

Well Jim, I like them but my favorite are the kitty, the grand-daughter and this couple, what a car my good lord...
