There are perfect pairings visible in the real world, coffee and cake, soul mates, perfume and body lotion and occasionally you come across a scene that seems to be perfectly paired.

Back in time these pairing seem to occur more frequently – where would Roy  Rogers have been without his trusty steed, Trigger.

This pairing is doing its best to travel backward in time. Swashbuckling railway  workers – the likes of these I’ve not seen in my journeys by rail.

This pairing are also going back in time to when knights fought with swords and protected the gates to the city.

But fiction  have the most pairings of all – the cat and the fiddle, the cup and spoon

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  1. This was much fun – I kept thinking, this will be my favorite – but then the next would prove just as worthy. I think it’s a natural part of the world to pair every thing possible. You always have a trove of photos to suit the occasion. These were perfect, Irene.

  2. I remember that Alice in Wonderland photo (or one similar). 🙂 Love the Steampunk couple!
