Changeable

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who kindly forwarded this picture taken by his partner Marianne from her place of work this morning. Some workplaces have better views than others. I had to be up and about quite sharply today. The new lens for the Archive Group microfiche reader had arrived and IContinue reading “Changeable”

Going completely nuts

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan, She met a new friend, Gertrude, on one of her recent outings. We were promised a windy day here today, and we got one. Luckily it was also mainly dry and not too cold so it wasn’t a bad day on the whole. It didn’t encourage goingContinue reading “Going completely nuts”

Business and pleasure

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He has been acting in an official capacity at an international junior golf tournament on the east coast. He got some fine weather for his duties. I had a rather dull time today on Archive Group business, making three trips up to the High Street to see people. OnContinue reading “Business and pleasure”

A windy walk

Today’s guest picture come from my cello playing friend Mike. He found this poplar hawk moth in his shed today. We woke up to a chilly, wet and windy day. The rain gave up after a while, and I was able to cycle round to the corner shop for supplies before Margaret joined us forContinue reading “A windy walk”

Singing in the sun

Today’s guest picture comes from Elaine, my correspondent on the north east coast of England. It shows a very impressive life boat and mover at Seahouses, purchased with public donations. Elaine tells me that it cost £3 million. The end of our warm and sunny spell of weather is in sight, so we made sureContinue reading “Singing in the sun”

Jam today

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He is on a short holiday and visited Tadcaster on his way to the coast at Scarborough today. We had another sunny day here, and it didn’t take too long for the temperature to warm up enough for me to be able to go out for aContinue reading “Jam today”

Another wet day

For the guest picture on a very dull day, I have turned once again to our son Tony and a sunny day in East Wemyss to cheer us up. This was taken a day or two ago. Sadly, Tony himself is not so cheerful. He and Marianne were due to come here tomorrow to seeContinue reading “Another wet day”

Going the extra mile

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Caroline who woke to an unusually coloured dawn over Portsmouth today. Shepherds were quaking in their boots. We woke to a miserably grey morning here, and the day showed admirable consistency in remaining miserably grey all day. I was happy to do some work for the Langholm ArchiveContinue reading “Going the extra mile”

Winding down

Today’s guest picture is another of Laura’s from St Joseph, Michigan. We got up to some heavy showers and strong winds here today. It wasn’t the best weather for the last day of Clare, Alistair and Matilda’s stay with us, but we made the best of it. Mrs Tootlepedal had a busy morning taking theContinue reading “Winding down”

Back to the rain again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin. He visited the Linlithgow canal basin with a group of walking friends today. In a moment of madness yesterday evening, I said that I would sleep in the tent overnight, and being too ashamed to back out, I did just that. Rather against my expectations, I hadContinue reading “Back to the rain again”
