I haven't taken a single photo in the last couple of weeks or ridden my trike outside because my sinus infection came back with a vengeance.  Three different antibiotics and I am finally feeling better.  The only thing of interest in the past week has been a praying mantis that decided the hummingbird feeder was a good place to hang out.  Linda removed him twice and and I relocated him twice.  The second time I relocated him was to the front yard.  I hope I didn't kill him in the process but 'ain't nothing going to mess with my hummers'.

 

Since I haven't taken any photos in the last couple of weeks I thought I'd go digging through old photos and decided to post some from the Coronation Day celebration in Addis Ababa Ethiopia back some 70 years ago.  The day celebrates that on Sunday, November 2, 1930, 38 year old Ras (Prince) Tafari Makonnen was proclaimed emperor of Ethiopia, taking the name Haile Selassie I, which means “Power of the Trinity.”   Think Rastafarian (Ras Tafari) religious movement of Jamaican origin.  The rastafari worshiped Haile Selassie.  When he visited the island he left the plane, took one look at the screaming rastafari got back on the plane and left.  Just a little bit of history.  My father took the photos. 

 

enjoy
