Thereby hangs a tail

Today’s flower is aubretia flowering for the second time this year. Good value for money.

The weather continues to be kind as it rained overnight and dried up in time for the usual morning run with Dropscone. We had light winds and a good time, although there was a great deal of moaning about how hard it was from me as we went round. That is fairly normal though. When we got back, I rang up the bike shop and they are still waiting for a replacement part for my bike so it looks as though Dropscone’s kind loan will have to be extended.

In the afternoon I put a slightly grizzly video of a dismembered lizard’s tail continuing to wag in the absence of the owner onto YouTube for the Moorland Project Officer. I notice that this is quite a popular upload as there were remarkably similar videos already there. I also posted a packet of Archive Group DVDs and a graveyard booklet to a lady in Australia. I had posted three graveyard booklets to a chap in Ireland yesterday. It is nice to know that people look at our Archive website.

Mrs Tootlepedal went off to do some public spirited weeding on a large public bed near the house and returned quite puffed out but still fit enough to pedal up to Wauchope schoolhouse with me. We had a look at the sloes up there with a view to future sloe gin but they had either been picked already or weren’t coming to anything. I mowed the front lawn when we got back to cheer myself up.

In the evening, as often, I entered a week of the E&L into the Langholm Archive index.
