Crowd scene

Today’s guest picture from our son Tony shows the East Wemyss dogs enjoying their day in the sun beside the Firth of Forth. We had a pretty nice day here too, although a chilly wind reminded us that we still have some way to go before jumpers and coats can be light heartedly discarded. Still,Continue reading “Crowd scene”

Hanging around

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony’s partner Marianne.  She shared her enjoyment of a view over the river Tay at Perth with some jackdaws. I realised when I came to put this post together that I had included far too many pictures in it by accident so I apologise in advance and recommendContinue reading “Hanging around”

A tea tray moment

Today’s guest picture comes from a visit to Birmingham by my brother Andrew.  He took the opportunity to show us the BT Tower there on a beautiful day.. I am trying mix gentle exercise with good quality rest for my foot so I went back to lie on my bed after breakfast and was fortunateContinue reading “A tea tray moment”

Wear and tear

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s African trip.  She met a number of alarming animals as she went along. My day started with a visit to the doctor to inquire about the possibility of a miracle cure and consult about the blood test results following my mild anaemia.  The blood results could not haveContinue reading “Wear and tear”

My glass is half full and half empty

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew who met this violinist in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.  The exhibition is called “Too Cute”. I had a restless but inactive day as my dratted foot went from being more or less pain free at breakfast to extremely sore by the end of the day. Continue reading “My glass is half full and half empty”

Across the moss

Today’s picture is another from Venetia’s African odyssey in the course of which she seems to have seen just about everything you could expect to see if things went really well on such a visit. After the excitement of yesterday’s outing, I had a quiet day today.  The weather was quiet too, with a tinyContinue reading “Across the moss”

An unusual nature reserve

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Stephen, a friend of my sister Susan.  He took this picture of  a fabulous Sydney Harbour sunset. The occasion was the opening night of the annual Opera on the Harbour.  I hope he will forgive me for only using part of his shot. We had a wonderfully springContinue reading “An unusual nature reserve”

Solo singing

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo’s visit to Vancouver  and shows that they have silly cars there as well as silly buildings.  By the time that you make a car this small, you would be better off on an electric bicycle.  I might get into such a car but I don’t think that IContinue reading “Solo singing”

In Haydn

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother’s Derby insects.  He suspects that the face of this grasshopper might have been modelled on our prime minister after recent events. We finally got a reasonably calm and occasionally sunny morning today and as it was a good day for gardening, it was almost inevitable that MrsContinue reading “In Haydn”

A tootling treat

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia’s African odyssey.  I don’t mind getting close to small birds but I might be a bit nervous to get so close to a lion in the open. We had a grey morning and a wet afternoon here today so it wasn’t really the day for a gentle pedal withContinue reading “A tootling treat”
