The first pedal of the year

Today’s guest picture came out a curious colour, but our son Tony sent it to me just to show that they have a moon in East Wemyss as well as lots of sunshine. We didn’t see the sun or the moon here when we got up today because we were back to cloudy and greyContinue reading “The first pedal of the year”

Genuine tidying up

Today’s guest post comes from my friend Dropscone, the golfer. He has found several new hazards on the golf course lately. At least they save on mowing costs. We had a dry but grey day here, and once again I had to take things carefully to avoid making my knees worse. My knee felt prettyContinue reading “Genuine tidying up”

Quick cooking, slow cycling

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. Just to show that the sun doesn’t always shine on East Wemyss, he sent us this picture of the moon shining there this evening instead. There was no sun to be seen in Langholm when we got up this morning. The clouds were clamped down on theContinue reading “Quick cooking, slow cycling”

Down but about

Today’s guest picture comes from our daughter Annie in London. She tried to get the bus driver to take her to the pot of gold but he insisted on sticking to his route. There was no chance of a pot of gold here today. We had more than enough rain for a rainbow, but notContinue reading “Down but about”

Testing the road

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He knows that I like a bridge so he sent me two for the price of one today. The forecast had suggested that it might be the first day for ages with only light winds, so I was definitely hoping to wake up with no side effectsContinue reading “Testing the road”

Slow cycling, slow cooking

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent Venetia. She came across this well decorated gate on a recent walk near her home. The day started off looking a bit grey, but it didn’t take long for the promised sun to appear. When it arrived, I got changed for cycling and Mrs Tootlepedal goodly stayedContinue reading “Slow cycling, slow cooking”

Gales, what gales?

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary’s visit to Regents Park this week on her way to play tennis. Another circular feature caught her eye. It is Triton blowing a conch shell while being supported by mermaids. The forecast for today was horrendous with heavy rain and fifty miles an hour winds but theContinue reading “Gales, what gales?”

Down came the rain

Today’s guest picture is a fine Welsh tree spotted by my fine welsh correspondent Keiron. Finally we got some steady rain here overnight, and although it wasn’t a downpour, there was enough rain to leave the ground looking definitely damp when we got up in the morning. It was deemed to be too cold andContinue reading “Down came the rain”

A piece of cake

Today”s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He saw deer on one of his walks with his dogs.  The deer saw him but didn’t run away at once. To say that today was another uneventful day would be rather overstating the excitement.  The recent frost has put a damper on the pleasure of walkingContinue reading “A piece of cake”

Short day, short ride

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo in Manitoba where they really know how to have a winter.  Her picture shows her cat contemplating the hard life that a rabbit has when it has to scratch up the snow in order to find a blade or two of grass. Although we have still got twoContinue reading “Short day, short ride”
