Namaste, and greetings. As promised, I have returned with more photos from Hartlebury Castle Museum. This time, most of the pics have a ‘horsey’ theme. And, though most things here are older than my memories, I well remember those old telephones in their red kiosks, though they will never replace iPhones. It’s also been many a year since I rode upon a hobby-horse, (or a real one for that matter.)
I can remember too, those colourful old-style gypsy caravans. Romany folk are called ‘Tinkers’ in Ireland, (an old name for metal workers,) and their lifestyle seemed very romantic indeed when I was just five years old. Today gypsies enjoy the benefits of modern motor homes, and I don’t blame them.
By the way, did you notice the dedication to Hephaestus on the forge? I liked that, and I think it’s because Amanda wasn’t taking things too seriously, that she ended up in ye medieval stocks*.
A word to the wise, hackers broke into Amras888, but now we are clean again: villainy confounded. Take great care everyone, and stay vigilant.
Until next time, with deepest thanks to all good folk who stop by this blog, Peace from Amras.

*In case you are wondering, I’m not old enough to remember ‘ye stocks.’
