Much visited

Today’s picture by Rachel, a friend of the family, was forwarded to me by my sister Susan from her I-Pad ( show off).  It shows the siblings at Huseyin’s recent birthday.  What is very strange is that none of us seem to have aged at all. Dropscone had an errand to do so I hadContinue reading “Much visited”

Relatively speaking

Today’s picture shows my younger brother and oldest sister testing out the middle lawn at Wauchope Cottage  today I had to give up the chance of a morning pedal as firstly I had agreed to fill the moorland feeders again, secondly I needed to go and get food for my own feeders and thirdly IContinue reading “Relatively speaking”

Olympic resting

Today’s picture was taken by my daughter Annie on the top of Box Hill and shows the British cycle team going over the top with a modicum of help from a single German.  I don’t know which lap it was. I like the Olympics.  The Olympics have given me a good reason for doing somethingContinue reading “Olympic resting”

A let down

Today’s photograph is  from my son Alistair’s phone and shows an Edinburgh swan. The day after the Common Riding is always a rather flat occasion after the excitements of the day before and today was made doubly flat by the frequent rain showers and the failure of Cav to win his coveted gold medal inContinue reading “A let down”

A day of three halves

Today’s picture shows my daughter-in-law Clare in front of a very big hedge in the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.  My son’s phone takes rather blue pictures. It was a mild, grey day with light winds and I should have been cycling but Dropscone was away on business and I had promised to fill the feedersContinue reading “A day of three halves”

Hot and cold

Today’s picture comes from my recorder playing friend Susan who is currently in Prague. The forecasters weren’t teasing and we had a really pleasant, sunny day today with the added advantage of no excessive heat.  The only down side is that I woke up with a snivelling cold, not feeling very well.  Mrs Tootlepedal wentContinue reading “Hot and cold”

Mist opportunity

Today’s picture was sent to me by my daughter.   They are certainly making sure that we know the Olympics are coming. It was far from sunny here once again as this picture which I took on my way back from an early visit to the dentist shows.  I think that the cloud level was evenContinue reading “Mist opportunity”

Drip feed

Today’s picture shows my sister-law Cathy’s nephew, who is visiting Britain from NZ, proudly holding an Olympic torch.  He hadn’t carried it himself but he was in a pub in Rye when he met someone who had  and they kindly gave him the opportunity to be a momentary torch bearer. We were sent back toContinue reading “Drip feed”
