Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

14 Aug

The following pictures were taken this past weekend at a school reunion of the steps that have been taken to stop the miscreants from breaking in and stealing equipment.

When we were at school there was never a need to go to these measures, we were taught not to take anything that did not belong to us.

Having to live like this is totally WRONG!

    Indeed a statement of our times. Was the reunion fun though?

      The reunion was great thanks. There were tons of people even though it was bitterly cold. It was great to see some of the ‘old’ faces and catch up on what has been happening.

    Isn’t it amazing how everyone else ages, though? Sometimes one hardly recognises them. Then, one can tell that their memories are failing because they don’t recognise you, either!
    The modern era gives infinitely less freedom than I had as a kid. The criminals romp around merrily, and it is all the honest people who are in jail.

      I think I aged far less in the looks department but lost out in the memory department🙂 Joking aside I fully agree with your comments. Luckily name tags with last known photo included does help a lot.

    Very different from what it looked like when I went to school. I wonder if any natural light can enter that class room?

      the sunlight probably looks like a chess board in the class.
      Wonder what they will do if a fire breaks out near the doorway?

      The Union Buildings actually have more bars around it to stop people getting too close.
      For years it was an area that anybody could take a walk around and relax. Now even the mountain behind it has been sealed off!

        Are those bars meant to keep the politicians in or the public out?

        Our politicians have proved that the bars to keep them in still have to be made! Consider Shaik Shabir and Jackie Selbi just as a start. Jail couldn’t hold them🙂

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is simply placing the
    other person’s webpage link on your page at proper place and other person will also do similar for you.
