A is happy, B is not (that is assuming I am B)

Today’s picture shows the heron from the Kilngreen sitting on a wire in Elizabeth Street for a change. I took this a day or two ago. It was a very unsatisfactory day from the start. The temperature was only 1.6º at nine o’clock which put paid to cycling so I did some work on theContinue reading “A is happy, B is not (that is assuming I am B)”

Getting my eye in again

Today’s picture is another of Mrs Tootlepedal’s interesting pictures of tree trunks, taken on her walk today. (You’ll need to click on the picture to get it’s full beauty.) Dropscone had other business to attend to but Chuck and I managed to dodge the numerous heavy showers that were about and get round the morningContinue reading “Getting my eye in again”

I can see clearly now

Today’s picture, taken by Mrs Tootlepedal as she came home from her walk, shows the author at work through the sitting room window. The ointment provided by the hospital had had a very good effect on my eye so that when I woke up it was pain free which was a blessing. It was rainingContinue reading “I can see clearly now”

No call for an ark after all

Today’s picture is of the regulars enjoying a little basking in the sun. The day dawned bright and more or less windless and the temperature was just above 3º so it was out with the bike for the morning run with Dropscone. A slight drawback appeared when I discovered that the front tyre was punctured.Continue reading “No call for an ark after all”

Over the hill

Today’s picture is of two goldfinches looking as though there was just one looking in a mirror. The rain and gales of the last two days had subsided by the morning and with the temperature having risen, it was a pleasant day. Mrs Tootlepedal started the day by giving her usual excellent breakfast to ourContinue reading “Over the hill”

Windy weather

Today’s picture is of an inquisitive horse we met on our walk I had arranged to take the car into the garage this morning so I was unable to join Dropscone and Chuck as they went round the morning run. As I was dealing with the car in town, I saw Chuck pedalling by onContinue reading “Windy weather”

More action

Today’s picture, taken by my sister Mary, is of  a squirrel in Regent’s Park. This was the best day for ages, the temperature above 4º by 9 o’clock, the sun shining and only a light wind. The morning run with Dropscone and Chuck was a pleasure, if still not very speedy. Looking at the forecastContinue reading “More action”

Ton Up

Today’s picture is another of Dropscone’s golfing scenes from yesterday. This shows Jim and George ready to tee off on the first. Classic dress style is always at the forefront of Langholm’s senior golfers’ thoughts. We are in a run of near freezing morning temperatures so there was no cycling after breakfast today. Instead, IContinue reading “Ton Up”
