Brunch in the city

Today’s picture shows a fine iron bridge over the Kelvin in Glasgow. The chief business of the day was a trip to Glasgow to take Alistair and Clare home and see the new kitchen and bathroom in their flat. We started with a visit to our local bottle bank. The drive to Glasgow was uneventfulContinue reading “Brunch in the city”

Back to the real world

Today’s picture is another from my sister Mary from one of her walks. It shows the magnificent house at Knole Park in Kent. The glorious weather continued today but we were all a bit shattered after yesterday so we had a late breakfast. While the others were getting up, I took the camera into theContinue reading “Back to the real world”

Langholm’s Great Day

Today was the day of the Langholm Common Riding and I have made an effort to give a picture of the day as it passed. For those who don’t know Langholm, the Common Riding is  a two hundred and fifty year old annual ceremony  arising originally from a court case where the inhabitants of LangholmContinue reading “Langholm’s Great Day”

Summer Fair

Dropscone has sent me a picture of his bruised leg for picture of the day but it was ruled out on the grounds of good taste and decency.  It looks very sore indeed. Here is a picture of the Holmwood rooks startled into flight by the pipe band instead. For one reason or another, IContinue reading “Summer Fair”

Up and down

Today’s picture from my sister Mary shows a deer at Knole Park in Kent where she went today. No cycling this morning as the golf course called. I went up straight after breakfast. The weather was ideal for golf, the course was in good condition, my playing partner was ready…it was all systems go. ExceptContinue reading “Up and down”

Drop drops in

Today’s picture shows the clipped front hedge and shows how noticeable the new lamp posts are in their gleaming sliver. The good weather continues and I continue to pedal. I have only missed two days so far this month. I went round the morning run by myself again today and stopped to take this pictureContinue reading “Drop drops in”

Perfect Sunday

Today’s picture, sent by my sister Mary, shows my brother Andrew tucking into a cream tea at Skelwith Bridge on his recent holiday. We are in a very good spell of weather at the moment with warm sunny days but generally not too hot so that a sit in the shade will always cool youContinue reading “Perfect Sunday”

Busy day

Today’s picture illustrates the motto ‘Sic transit gloria Friday’. Yesterday this was a poppy, today it lies in the dust. The weather was fine, the forecast good and Mrs Tootlepedal was occupied with tapping and B & B preparations so it seemed a good time to get out the speedy bike and cycle somewhere. IContinue reading “Busy day”


Today’s picture is another look at a flamboyant yellow rose. A day or two ago, as we were pedalling along, Dropscone observed as an aside in relation to some other matter, that since we were regular cyclists, it was highly likely that we would fall off some day. He didn’t expect it it to beContinue reading “Catastrophe”
