The treasures we find. deepest, darkest Estonia July 2021

That loveable cheeky chappy, Sir Thomas Hicks, aka Tommy Steele, you know one of them luvvies that dress up and pretend to be someone else, sang back in 1967, with great gusto I believe whilst dancing round on twinkle toes FFS! "half a sixpence"in the film of the same name.

"Half a sixpence is better than half a penny,
Is better than half a farthing, is better than none".

Ma ei saa köhimist lõpetada
Ma vajan pask
MA VAJAN PASK.

I wonder if the release blew the fucking roof off.

Faded images of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, nestling next to kiddies comics.

A genuine vintage bottle of Russian white wine, awesome.

The skull?
Oh yes I picked it up, examined it.

It was real.

How very charming.
