Faces

It occurred to me that I don't know what regular visitors to this blog look like.  Ah-ha, I thought, I can use Google to find pictures of them! Simples! Knowing both first and second names was helpful. Here are some of the results of my "research". It's always nice to put a face to a name.

 Here's Graham Edwards - author of "Eagleton Notes" on his Hebridean estate:-
Here's the famous North Wales blogger and all round good egg - John Gray - creator of "Going Gently":-
This is Jennifer Barlow from Florence, South Carolina - the brains behind "Sparrow Tree Journal":-
 Below there's a picture of Keith Kline - often known as "Red" from "Hiawatha House":-
And here's Lee George, Laughing Horse Blogger of the Year in 2015 and the sassy cat-loving lady behind "Kitchen Connection":-
 This foxy lady is Meike Riley who has just stepped out of her "Mental Library":-
 And here's Long Island socialite and best-selling author Vivian Swift:-
Below you can see Steve Reed whose blog is called "Shadows and Light". He was the Laughing Horse Blogger of the Year in 2016:-
This is my surrogate Colorado sister Donna - also known as "Peace Thyme":-
Unfortunately my research didn't throw up any secret pictures of Robert H. Brague but I found this road in Canton, Pennsylvania where there is a house for sale:-
Finally, here I am:-
LATE ADDITION.... Here's Jenny O who blogs from a remote galaxy called Nova Scotia. She reported an episode of severe pouting when she discovered that her image was missing from this gallery...

  1. Ah yes, the perils of Google! I'm surprised I haven't had any Croydon constituents badgering me on the phone, actually...I guess since there are no phone books anymore they can't find my number!

    1. Perhaps I should rent three billboards outside Croydon, Surrey - just to let your constituents know how to get in touch with you,!

    1. Where did you stay when you were in Singapore Mr Rhodes? I hope there was no more hanky panky with your assistant!

  3. There was a Robert Brague (J, not H) who was a Roman Catholic priest in the Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania, who was involved in a sexual relationship with a girl starting at age 17, in 1988. He denied initially but confessed when the girl got pregnant. The RC hierarchy, in its infinite wisdom, moved him to the Diocese of Venice, FL, where he continued as a priest until his death in 1997. He is not me and I am not him (pardon the objective cases but it is the way we talk in America). Some have said my face is a road map, but never a road sign. However, you captured me perfectly; the likeness is striking. You are a regular Yorkieangelo. a Yorkie da Vinci, a Yorksel Adams.

    1. This is known as damning someone with faint praise.

    2. That Pennsylvania road may have been named after Father Brague. Come to think of it, you are also a Father! When should I confess my sins to you Father? It will take about three days.

  4. Ha! Good one! Nice hat, Graham.

    I've actually "met", on the internets, two other Vivian Swifts: one was a dominatrix in San Fransisco who owned vivianswift.com when my first book came out, and many readers who were looking for me found her X-rated site instead. She's since left the spanking biz without giving me her domaine name, so even though I'm the only Vivian Swift who would want it, the price for owning it keeps going up.

    The other Vivian Swift was a very nice Irish (Ulster) fellow.

    The nice thing about Taylor's fame is that I don't have to spell my last name any more, or have it constantly mistaken for "Smith".

    1. At first I thought that Taylor Swift was a clothing business where you could get a suit made in twenty four hours. As for Vivian Swift The Dominatrix, please don't even try to pretend that she wasn't your alter ego!

  5. Wow! Other than the deep tan in that picture, you found an exact doppelganger!! How about that, brother?! Seriously, I don't look like that anymore, but in my seventieth year, I still feel as young and free and sensual and brave as I ever did.

    1. p.s. (Really, if I want to be truthful, it is my 71st year.)

    2. In the photograph you don't look a day over seventy and I must say that's a very cool necklace you are wearing!

  6. Aha! Now I know what I would like if I had long red hair instead of chin-length mousy brown. Oh, and if I didn't wear specs, and if my eyes, mouth and nose were completely different (let alone the shape of my head). Other than that, there is a striking resemblance.

    1. Of course I mean "Now I know what I would LOOK like", not "now I know what I would like".

    2. Yes. I see what you mean. From certain angles the woman in the picture looks slightly different from you but I found it on the website of Ludwigsburg police. They have a "wanted" list for suspected rail fare dodgers.

  9. Well I'm afraid that the chap supposed to be me is not wearing a 'Tilly' Hat so must be an imposter. Oh and he looks over 26 which is the age I grew a beard. He is, however, vaguely like my Maternal Uncle. However you've made me realise that it would be extremely easy to find a photo of me in Blogland even if not on my blog.

    1. That is the real Graham Edwards. You sir are an impostor!

  10. I'd never hire you as a sleuth, Yorkie, nor would my best mate, Sherlock Holmes.

    I hate to have to break the news to you, but you have absolutely no talent whatsoever in that department.

    Missing persons, with you at the helm, have no need to fear being found. :)

    At least the lady you found is a fellow Queenslander who lives on an island off the coast from Townsville - Magnetic Island.

    She is a talented Aboriginal artist, who also does great work among Aboriginal women using art therapy to help them recover from trauma. I've not heard about her before. Very interesting...

    I've visited that island a couple of times in the past; I lived in Townsville for nearly a year back in the mid-90s. The island is a popular weekend haunt of those who live in the Townsville area. It's actually classed as a Townsville suburb....people commute daily from the island to work in Townsville. It's only a 25 minute ferry ride across the bay. The island's permanent population is around 2,500, thereabouts.

    Quote: "Although Captain Cook never even landed on Magnetic Island while sailing past on June 7th, 1770, it was the famous incident, recorded in his journal, where the ship's magnetic compass ‘would not travis well when near it’ that gave the island its name. He then named it 'Magnetical Island or Headland' as he wasn't even sure if it was an island or a peninsula." End Quote

    "Maggie" is the only freehold island on the Great Barrier Reef.

    And, that, laddie...is your lesson for today. Do your homework, and present it to me tomorrow.

    1. Yes Miss George. Your wish is my command and I don't wish to receive a walloping like the one you gave me the last time I forgot my homework!

    3. Okay, okay I did your high royalness...But there was no need for the tennis racquet!

    4. And you didn't have to make such a racket!! You alerted the whole neighbourhood!!!

    5. It was embarrassing when your landlord burst in. He seemed a bit of a pompous ass to me... himself in need of a good spanking!

  11. Well, I'm miffed that you left me out, too. I found some great shots of myself at my modern dance class.

    1. Wow! You are into modern dancing? Do you dress like John Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever"?

  12. I like the very young Keith Kline! But I'm a guy who hasn't owned suit since 1965!
