A slow day

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone, who was at Wembley Stadium on Sunday to watch a game of American Football.  I must say that I thought that American footballers would look a little fiercer than this but what do I know? Dropscone had got back safely from his London adventure by todayContinue reading “A slow day”

Puffed out

Today’s guest picture comes from the world’s greatest baby’s other grandfather.  Matilda is requesting some more demanding mental arithmetic and her mother is trying to think of a suitable question. I didn’t have to think what to do today as it was perfect for cycling and I had nothing on my calendar to do instead. Continue reading “Puffed out”

Velosong

Today’s guest picture shows the world’s greatest baby looking amazed at what fun it is to have an aunt to bounce on. I took advantage of a perfect cycling day to nip out for an out and back 50km pedal I (I think that sounds more impressive than a 32 mile pedal) while Mrs TootlepedalContinue reading “Velosong”

Showing off

Today’s guest picture shows William and Sara, two happy prize winners at the Eskdale show today and comes thanks to modern technology from the phone of their mother Liz via her husband’s phone and then on to me by email.  Who knows how many miles the dots have travelled to bring me a picture takenContinue reading “Showing off”

Deflated

Today’s guest picture comes from Mrs Tootlepedal who was visiting the world’s greatest baby in Edinburgh.  Matilda is puzzling out the convoluted constitutional matters that have arisen since the referendum. It was a breezy morning so I suggested to Dropscone, when he arrived after breakfast, that we should go round the more sheltered traditional morningContinue reading “Deflated”

Turned off

Today’s guest picture shows a fine mountain view taken by my brother Andrew in NZ when he was tramping to Silica Rapids at Whakapapa at the beginning of this month.  I may have remarked before that he is an exceptionally active chap.  The building in the foreground is a hotel. I was by no meansContinue reading “Turned off”

Getting the picture

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my friend Bruce who was visiting Hawick today.  It shows his terrier Guthrie posing in front of the statue of Jimmy Guthrie, the celebrated racing motor cyclist.  Bruce thought that this juxtaposition might appeal to me and he was right. On the instructions of my legs, IContinue reading “Getting the picture”

Gently does it.

Today’s guest picture, in the absence of exciting offerings from anyone else, is another from my sister Mary’s portfolio.  It shows the restored  but thoroughly beached Cutty Sark at Greenwich.  It is sitting on a visitor centre. In a severe shock to the system, it was actually raining when Dropscone and I started out onContinue reading “Gently does it.”

More macro mania

Today’s guest picture shows a sophisticated big city London heron spotted by my sister Mary in Regent’s Park on her way home from tennis. Our good weather continues but each day sees the wind getting a little stronger which probably means that the end is near.  As it is the autumn equinox today, it wouldContinue reading “More macro mania”

With song and a smile

Today’s guest picture shows a fine iron bridge over the Regent’s Canal in London.  My sister Mary took it as she strolled along the tow-path a week ago. After a succession of rather grey mornings, we had a beautiful sunny day today and when Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir, IContinue reading “With song and a smile”
