Singing in the sunshine

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who must be on holiday in the West Highlands as he sent me this picture of Eilean Donan Castle taken earlier this evening as the light faded. We had plenty of light here today with a lot of sunshine and and only the odd speck of rain.Continue reading “Singing in the sunshine”

Winding down

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who visited Tamworth recently and found the castle gardens looking well kept. We had another fine day here today and indeed there was only 1 cm of rain in Mary Jo’s rain gauge when I looked this evening so we have had a pretty dry week.  ItContinue reading “Winding down”

Three score and seven

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone who has been in Glasgow getting a knee checked out.  He took the opportunity to sample the Glasgow underground train service, popularly known as the ‘Clockwork Orange’. We woke to a beautiful sunny morning today but the late September downside was in evidence in the form of a layerContinue reading “Three score and seven”

Steady progress

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who met an unexpected animal at St Pancras.  She thinks that there may be more roaming the streets of London. I had a day of steady but gentle activity today.  It was rather grey in the morning so I was happy to look at the hymns forContinue reading “Steady progress”

Hail and farewell…and a song cycle

Today’s guest picture comes from ex work colleague Marjorie.  She was surprised to find a common murre or guillemot in the field behind her house last week far from its usual habitat.  Presumably it was blown there by the strong winds of storm Ali. Long time readers may remember New Zealand’s baby of the century,Continue reading “Hail and farewell…and a song cycle”

Tracking down toadstools

Today’s guest picture is another from our son Tony just to show that his life isn’t always glorious sunrises. We had a dry day today that became increasingly breezy as time passed.  If I had been extremely well prepared and keen, I could have got up at the crack of dawn and done twenty milesContinue reading “Tracking down toadstools”

An early chill

Today’s guest picture shows a wonderful sunrise over the Forth captured by our older son Tony as he walked his dogs near his new house on the shore. We had a sunny day here but after a clear night, it was only 2°C when Mrs Tootlepedal got up and she was worried about the garden. Continue reading “An early chill”

Conducted tour

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Gavin who is on a visit to some Scottish islands.  He looked over the water to see the Paps of Jura.  In my distant youth I ran in a fell race that went right over the tops of those hills.  It was very hard work. It was anContinue reading “Conducted tour”

Show time

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce.  He was struck by this pieces of street art in Sheffield, the work of Pete McKee. a local painter and commercial artist . The mornings are getting cooler now and we were well down in single figures today. Mrs Tootlepedal was up early and started the day byContinue reading “Show time”

ENT-ertainment

Today’s guest picture comes from ex-archive group member Ken, who now lives in the north east.  He spotted a mother gull teaching her children where food comes from if people are careless enough to overfill their bins. We had a dry, often sunny but breezy day today and I might have gone for a pedalContinue reading “ENT-ertainment”
