Wandering

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s visit to Rye.  It speaks for itself.  Simple. I had to speak to myself today because Mrs Tootlepedal went off to Edinburgh to commune with TWGSP.  My conversation with myself touched on cycling but when Dropscone rang up to say that the morning run had takenContinue reading “Wandering”

Dodging the showers

Today’s guest picture shows the Mermaid in Rye.  The picture was taken by my sister on a recent visit to this ancient town on the south coast of England.  It must be one of the prettiest inns in the country. We had another chilly and windy day with alternating sunshine and showers.  I found aContinue reading “Dodging the showers”

All lit up

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia.  She saw this old wireless transmitting station and was amazed to find that it is on sale as a dwelling. We had a day of variable weather, with a selection of wind, rain, hail, thunder and occasional sunshine.  It was very cold too too and the combination of theContinue reading “All lit up”

Fully furnished

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my recorder playing friend Susan who saw this fine skyscape on a recent cycle outing. We had a sharp frost during the night but the ground was remarkably ice free in the morning and while there was still frozen water in a bucket outside the back doorContinue reading “Fully furnished”

Carpeted

Today’s guest picture shows some friends which my Newcastle correspondent Fiona met in Malta. After a chilly night, there was just enough rise in the temperature to get me out on the bike while Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir.  There was a chilly wind and I was back into myContinue reading “Carpeted”

Triumph for Mrs Tootlepedal & co

Today’s guest picture shows the world’s greatest small person in reflective mood at a party. After breakfast, I waved good bye to Mrs Tootlepedal as she set off to Dumfries with three colleagues from the Ewes WRI group to take part in a competition for 15 minutes of prose and poetry readings on the themeContinue reading “Triumph for Mrs Tootlepedal & co”

Heavy breathing

Today’s guest pictures, sent to me by Bruce, shows some of the inhabitants of Gilnockie who haven’t decided how they are going to vote in the forthcoming general election. It was hard to know who or what to blame.  Was it the dry spell making for dusty conditions, was it the flowers in the gardenContinue reading “Heavy breathing”

Making the most of it

The guest picture of the day is a fine crab apple tree, her pride and joy, sent to me by my Somerset correspondent Venetia.   I can see why she likes it. By all accounts, today is to be the last of our recent sunny spell with the temperature set to drop, the wind to riseContinue reading “Making the most of it”

Downhill

Today’s guest picture comes from Fiona, my Newcastle correspondent.  She has been forced to go and work in Malta for a while and is having to put up with surroundings like these. We had another lovely day here today, genuinely warm and with gentle winds.  I would like to have used it to go cyclingContinue reading “Downhill”

Uphill work

Today’s guest picture comes from my elder son and shows one of his dogs having a grand postprandial snooze. The forecast was very good and the wind was light so it was a perfect day for a pedal and for once I had the time to take advantage of this.  Dropscone and I have been inveigledContinue reading “Uphill work”
