The Cat Curls UpAnd a very good afternoon to you. You catch me looking at a catalogue of old chairs – nothing I would sell in my store, but from an aesthetics viewpoint it reminds me of some of the – things we used to think were fashionable.The Cat Curls Up by KP-Presents
Take this one for example – the infamous box seat, so popular in the early seventies for the style conscious and space conscious young person about town. Actually, the only thing they really turned out to be good for was walking into or falling off.
There was a flat I visited in the Knightsbridge area in the mid seventies, when Habitat, god rest their soul, were just starting out and making this sort of thing popular. I had thought it was empty, but after raiding the bedrooms I discovered the error of my ways – walking into the main room, I disturbed this eighteen year old girl, wearing a short sleeved white crotched top, pale blue mini skirt, white knee length socks and flat shoes, sitting on one of these box contraptions

“Well,” Diana said as they sat in the Captain’s Lounge, “at least they paid for a more suitable fare this time.”
“I guess so,” Abby said as she flipped though the paper, “at least we can sleep on….”
“What is it,” Diana said as she looked at her daughter.
“Oh dear – someone is unhappy about our calendar,” she said as she handed her mother the Times. Diana read the comments, and then shook her head. “If I am happy with it – and I am – there is no problem. Besides, it could be a much worse day today.”
“Oh – how?”
“You could be with Carina.”
Abby giggled. “There is that, yes.”
“All right,” Juliette said as she got out of the car, “the plan of attack?”
“Angel, Judy and I take Ama to the gloves store, we place the order,
Heidi's Mystery Week - part 10“Of course,” Sarah said as they carried a car seat each out, and brought them over. “Here they are – Bart and Sarah Holderness-Carter.”Heidi's Mystery Week - part 10 by KP-Presents
“Oh my goodness,” Amy and Dorothy said as they came over, “they look adorable. How are they behaving?”
“So far so good,” Sarah said as she sat down, “no sleepless nights – yet?”
“Sensible attitude – never say never,” Roberta said as she looked at them.
“Still, they look so peaceful,” Dorothy said as Bart opened his eyes and looked out from under his blue cap.
“So what have you guys been up to for the last few days,” Brian said as he shook hands with Jack and Kurt.
“Drinking, walking, fishing and hunting,” Jack said. “those two young men have proven themselves to be – reasonable shots.”
He looked over to where Karl and Dave were talking to Heidi and Cindy.
Endgame- Part 1Thursday 2nd OctoberEndgame- Part 1 by KP-Presents
Miss Tennant was walking back to her office when she saw Sandy Richmond walk in with Abigail de Ros and Joanne Smith.
“Ah,” she said as she stood waiting for them, “I trust you have an outstandingly good reason for missing classes this morning?”
“Actually, I am afraid I am the one at fault Miss Tennant,” Joanne said as she crossed her hands on front of her. “Abigail stayed at my house last night, and we were up until the small hours discussing schools for me for next year. I’m afraid we lost track of time, and my sister interrupted us at five this morning. She insisted we both got a few hours sleep before coming in, and she would call the school. I guess she got waylaid and forgot to do so.”
“I came to confirm that,” Sandy said with a smile. “Heather had forgotten she had been invited for coffee with some of the other mothers, and aske
Go Go Bound“All right, gentlemen, please welcome to the dance floor – DUSTY!!”Go Go Bound by KP-Presents
The men started clapping and cheering as the dark haired beauty came out on the dance floor, smiling as she started dancing to the music of Marmalade. The Go Go A Go Go may not have been the most originally name bar in the town, but it was one of the best known and most appreciated, especially by those of a certain age.
The club itself was jointly owned by Maria and her sister Beth – Maria worked front of shop, running the bar and keeping the customers happy, while Beth ran back of house and booked the dancers. Dusty was one of the most popular, as she danced on the stage, the metallic sheen of her pop art dress gleaming under the Krieg lights.
Her dark hair was arranged in a high beehive, held in place by an army of Kirby grips and a mass of Silvikrin hairspray. Her sleeveless dress had black borders separating the solid blocks of white, blue, red and gold, while her legs were
