Almanac Life – #hourlydaily scenes of life: 11-17 September 2019

G’day – I’ve been posting these everyday celebrations of everyday scenes for a while now. Every day. Every hour.
Inspired by Ricky Gervais’ “After Life,” among other things. Life, really.
I’m going to break from posting for a couple of weeks.
