A light snooze

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who took this picture of the Thames on her way to the National Film Theatre. After the excitements of going to Edinburgh one day and touring the country the next for me, and visiting the south for a week and then touring the country for Mrs Tootlepedal,Continue reading “A light snooze”

A grand tour

Today’s guest picture, taken by Bruce’s daughter and forwarded to me by him, shows Guthrie, having woken up, wondering where the next meal is coming from. We were up promptly in the morning but got away a few minutes behind schedule on a trip to Lockerbie.  This time we were not catching the train toContinue reading “A grand tour”

A family day

Today’s guest picture shows a fine butterfly taken just outside Charlottesville, VA.  It was sent to me by Dropscone’s niece Hilary, who remarked that judging by its diet, its ancestors probably came over from Scotland during the clearances. It was another cool, grey and occasionally showery day but it was made much brighter by aContinue reading “A family day”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture shows my friend Bruce’s dog Guthrie relaxing in Sheffield where he is on holiday.  He had two walks yesterday and felt the need of a little lie down. As my knee was still sore, I was in full Guthrie mode today and did very little of note.  Another cold, windy, grey dayContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”

Don’t get around much anymore

Today’s guest picture shows an array of Mr Grumpy’s London cousins lining up on the banks of the Serpentine.  It was taken yesterday by my sister Mary. There is a flourishing herony in the park there. It didn’t matter what the weather was like here today as I wasn’t going anywhere so I was secretlyContinue reading “Don’t get around much anymore”

A happy ending

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s sister Liz and shows the beach at Cromer in Norfolk which she visited last month while on a walking holiday. Very stiff winds put all thoughts of an early morning pedal out of my mind and I did a little shopping instead and then had the pleasure of eatingContinue reading “A happy ending”

Another day, another orchid

The guest picture of the day was taken in Hyde park by my sister Mary a week or so ago. It shows the Italian Garden there. Mrs Tootlepedal had had a very successful day watching her brother fly a Spitfire (he’s a pilot and he really did fly it, not just fly in it) andContinue reading “Another day, another orchid”

Fairwell, my lovely

As the Open Golf Tournament starts tomorrow at St Andrew’s, I thought that it would be appropriate to have another of Dropscone’s east coast golf course pictures as the guest offering today. The title of today’s post, which I stole from Raymond Chandler, explains why I had to get up at four o’clock this morning,Continue reading “Fairwell, my lovely”

Cutting it fine

Today’s guest picture was very kindly sent to me from the USA  by fellow blogger Amy Corron who knows that I like rabbits.  It shows a regualr visitor eating blueberries in her yard. It was hard to believe that it was the middle of summer when we looked out of the window this morning.  ItContinue reading “Cutting it fine”
