Monumental tour

Today’s picture is another from my brother.  It shows the Erewash canal running through Long Eaton beside a road.  I think that it gives the place a continental feel. Our B&B guests were on the road early but I rose late.  Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir and I idled about,Continue reading “Monumental tour”

Nothing doing

Today’s picture, sent by Gavin who is on holiday, shows a tower that houses barn owls.  I’ll have to up my bird feeder game to keep up with this sort of thing. We woke to a miserable wet and windy day.  It was a pity as it was our daughter’s last morning with us andContinue reading “Nothing doing”

A varied day

Today’s picture, sent by my sister Mary, shows a very curious animal in Regent’s Park. I had to get up early today. It wasn’t to go cycling though.  I had to take the keyboard back to Canonbie school so that it was ready for their Monday music lessons.  My daughter came with me for company. Continue reading “A varied day”

Jay walking

Today’s picture is a rather worrying road sign encountered by Bruce. The forecast was not great for today but with the wind coming rather from a northerly direction, we were protected by the hills that more commonly give the rain when our usual wind comes from the south west.  Looking at reports of rain bedevilledContinue reading “Jay walking”

The birds and the bee.

Today’s picture, sent to me by a proud granny, is a picture of yesterday’s great frog hunt. There was no need to hunt today After his week away refereeing infant golf prodigies, Dropscone was back for the morning run today.  He had done a very hilly run in the strong winds yesterday so I amContinue reading “The birds and the bee.”

Too late

Today’s picture, sent by Gavin, shows a pair of Dolphins in Victoria the capital of British Columbia on Vancouver Island.  Very smart work with the clippers here. As if to reproach us for planning to go away, the day dawned with brilliant blue skies and a radiant sun.  As if to remind us of whyContinue reading “Too late”

Old History

There is no current significance to this picture but I have put it here as it is two years, more or less to the day, since I started this blog and this was the first picture that appeared.  I note, somewhat sadly considering my present state of health,  that I cycled a hundred miles, includingContinue reading “Old History”


Today’s picture is a third from my sister Mary’s recent visit to the Thames. It shows the magnificent glass house in Kew Gardens. I was going to do a lot of things today – go for a bike ride, mow the lawn, take some nice pictures and who knows what else but in the endContinue reading “Hung”

Round and round

Today’s picture comes from my sister Mary who had a walk from Richmond to Hampton Court along the Thames today. The weather was much improved today. The wind had dropped and the temperature had risen so bicycling was number one on the menu. I rushed to get up and have my breakfast so that IContinue reading “Round and round”
