Men in Black lll (Silly Tuesday marooned edition).

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 31 December 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Just perfect for a Silly Tuesday, left to right - the Mayor of South Tyneside Cllr. Ernest Gibson, Paralympic Gold Medal winner Joseph Craig, Mayoress of South Tyneside Patricia Ridley, all captured doing their second Boxing Day Dip.

Yes, I'm getting to like our fun loving Mayor more and more, he's game for anything, so long as it adds to charitable funds or increases the coffers of the Mayoress' Charity Fund. This was their second freezing dip of the morning on Boxing Day, this one in aid of St. Claire's Hospice and it was held on Sandhaven Beach, South Shields.

Thanks for sticking around folks, Mrs. Curly is keeping me so busy right now, so much that I don't have a single picture ready for 2014, I can see me dipping into the archives for the New Year!

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was 'I wonder if those are shark skin suits'. My slightly strange mind. :) Love the pick and 3 cheers for the Mayor and Mayoress for their good humor.
