A second trip to the Hunterian to take all those ultra-wide shots I’d envisioned the first time, and because Kim hadn’t been there in over a decade.

Fräulein Elsa’s Cabinet of Curiosities

As something of an aside, congratulations are in order for Miss Kim Khaos here, who – in just 24 hours – managed to successfully recover her name and account from the Facebook identity police (which is just as well really since I’ve never known her as anything else, and this whole “real name” policy for performers is generating far more confusion than clarity.)

Lady Shep-en-hor and Lady Kim Ba.

She was about as impressed with the Annabelle-esque birthing doll as we’d been.

The diplodocus leg looking even mightier with Kim for scale vs. John.

The Clachaig Skull: carbon-dated to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2500 BC) at a time when people were becoming farmers rather than nomadic hunter-gatherers. It was excavated from the cairn at Clachaig Falls on Arran in 1900 along with the remains of fourteen men, women and children.

Drawn, magpie-like, to the gemstones.

The Antonine Wall: Rome’s Final Frontier.

Built around AD 142 in the reign of the Roman emperor Antoninus Pius, the Antonine Wall ran coast-to-coast across Scotland from the Clyde to the Firth of Forth.

This was also one of our daytime-cinema trips, and it has to be said that of the three near-identical geriaction movies Liam Neeson has made in a row, Run All Night is by far the worst. On a related note, it’s probably time for reviewers to stop referring to him as an “unlikely action here,” which – at this point – is like calling Johnny Depp an unlikely lead actor in a Tim Burton movie.
