"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Friday’s Child

Friday’s child is loving and giving.

Schoolboy buying milk for his family’s breakfast.

Monday’s child is fair of face
Tuesday’s child is full of grace
Wednesday’s child is full of woe 
Thursday’s child has far to go

  2. Do you have any photographs of yourself as a child?

    • Remarkably few. My parents were struggling with their finances when I was very young. Photography became an unaffordable luxury for them.
