"Father Catches 'Em, Mother Cooks 'Em"

Sad news via the Bridlington Free Press

Flamborough lost some of its history this week.
Our good friend from childhood days, Robert Emmerson,
of Flamborough, UK -- a brave and worthy fisherman;
an ex-member of the lifeboat crew and well known
figure at the North Landing selling his crabs and lobsters,
passed away this week at the age of 82. These photos
were taken last summer.

Though he once traveled to
Spain on vacation, he didn't
think much of it in comparison
to Flamborough! He was
one of the last fishermen to fish
out of North Landing,
before the bulk of the industry
moved to Bridlington.

In his latter years, Robert spoke to us of his commitment
as a Christian. He was a life-long Methodist.

North Landing will never be quite the same.

These are photo ATC's which means that they
were originally a part of a photo. Then I cropped
out the part I wanted and sized them down to two
and a half by three and a half inches.

I have to admit to editing these ATC's on my Microsoft Digital Imaging Editor because it brings out the colors so well. However on the 'Silver Jangles' one, the dangling things were actually done in silver pencil, but since I like the intensity of the other colors I decided to leave them as they came up on the program.

For all the complaining about computers, that I have done,
(and it's a lot), I have to admit that
there are days when I'm
very pleased to have one. Like today!


I scan eBay regularly for all things 'Flamborough' A few
days ago I came across a small blue and white teapot,
with 'Flamborough Head' written on the side.

Pink and Green Ribbon

Not very earth shaking, I know, but since I have the
matching blue and white mug, and the small sugar bowl,
(which I also found on eBay), I am very happy to say
that I won the bidding on this teapot.

Green Flash!

I know there is a small milk jug or creamer out there,
because I seem to recall seeing it and deciding that I
didn't want it. That was before I knew there was a
teapot and sugar bowl.

I'm going to get my camera out and see if I can take a
photo of the pieces I have, then I can stop boring you
with all my ATC's.
Still, I feel a blog is so much more interesting with some-
thing more than just words on it.
