Dutch bits and doings 5

When Shaw finally suffles off this mortal coil he will spend eternity doing the 3000 piece jigsaw of this picture  but there will always be one piece missing and it will be a different one each timeCry

Wonderful shot! Bikes make such interesting subjects and this one is an excellent example. I love the lantern. smile
Bill Phillips: So do I. I loved the whole thing.

That is one customer who stays for quite a while, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I think he moved in Ray!
The back tire needs some air and if that is a wooden shoe beneath the pedal, it needs some planted flowers, too. Other than that this is a charmer, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I don't think this bike is going anywhere Beverly. I bet they plant something in the clog!
great shot. i wonder how would this look if no one disturbs the cycle but keeps tending to these plants over a couple of years.
Bill Phillips: I think it is a permanent fixture already Ayush

If that was my bike I would restore it to pristine roadworthy condition
Bill Phillips: I may have fallen for Stanley but I'm not credulous enough to believe that!

More Dutch cannot be, Bill!
(What is about Shaw or Shawsy - every day his name will be mentioned on one of the SC- blogs? Is he a sort of celebrity I did miss?)
Bill Phillips: Mick or Michael Shaw a friend of Frank Croston (Blue skies) and blogger under the name of Murphys would be delighted to be thought of as a celebrity.

HA, I saw the thumbnail and I know where we are.
Our special pancake house smile
That is a great shot and the best music with it smile
Bill Phillips: I had forgotten this song Lady P, but then I was never a big fan of Queen .

This is just so typically iconic of Dutch obsessive behaviour.


Philine: Shawsy is a special breed of man who likes us to stick pins (euphemism for savage teasing ridicule) in him.
It makes him very happy to have all that perjorative attention.
Bill Phillips: He is full of sound and fury signifying very little

This is one of my favorite props in all of Dutchland, Bill. I especially like it in wintertime when the lights wrapped around it are twinkling. smile
Bill Phillips: You must take a picture of that and show me Ginnie

It would make a fantastic jigsaw, terrific shot
Bill Phillips: I have a friend who would probably love it Aussie!

Love it! A great use for old bike. I'm sure that one om old bikes about 300 years ago had rod brakes and I certainly had one with one of those bike dynamos; completely useless when you stopped moving of course. The oil lamp would be of more use.
Bill Phillips: They used to wear a hole in the side of the tyre too as I recall
Trimbo is out of order , I may sue him for this. and you also for allowing him to put his comment up on your blog.
Bill Phillips: Comrade Trim has a very good Solicitor

I thought Mr Michael Shaw was a charming gentleman, Bill
Bill Phillips: He is Lisl. Well perhaps not exactly charming and, well, hardly a gentleman but apart from that......

It will never fly Bill.
Bill Phillips: Ideal for Chadair then?
Very nice, Bill,great retirement for a well used bike. Do you know how much earache I'm going to get now? On top of the usual! smile
Bill Phillips: You wait until the HDR stuff starts Frank

This can lead to the Shawshank redemption, before he leaves that coil.
Bill Phillips: There is no redemption for Shaw

I put flowers in anything |I can find too.
Bill Phillips: It is almost always a good idea Mary
I love the way this old bike has been done up like this, very picturesque.
Bill Phillips: Pure choccie box Brian
Very attractive use of an old bike, a lovely shot Bill smile
Bill Phillips: This was where we got to eat Dutch Pancakes!
I'm very surprised that you have chosen such a lovely image to use for Mick's eternity project Bill, would't a picture of a smiling you induce more suffering??
Bill Phillips: The next weapon in the armoury is HDR done in Photomarix Pro.....guess who hates it? grin
Sally, I suffer enough from Bill as it is.
Bill Phillips: I have barely started
Very nice Bill. The ladder? looks a little strange.
Bill Phillips: Couldn't move it and cloning it out hardly seems worth the bother
I hope you and Trimbo have made a will.
Bill Phillips: I made mine years ago and you get nothing.
Lovely shot- how wonderful to have the baskets full of flowers! smile
I LOVE that Queen song!
Bill Phillips: It appealed to me. I am not a big fan of Queen but this song I quite like
