A step too far

Today’s guest pictures comes from Bruce who lives near the fire station.  He is certainly not going in theeere. I started off on the morning run with Dropscone but had to stop almost before we had started because of an ominous grating sound coming from my back wheel.  When a preliminary investigation failed to locateContinue reading “A step too far”

A bit of a ruin

Today’s guest picture, sent to Mrs Tootlepedal by an ex work colleague Anne, shows a hummingbird hawkmoth in her garden. It is not a fantastic picture and you can just make out the moth visiting a flower but it was fantastic for Anne to see such a rare moth. I was in a cycling moodContinue reading “A bit of a ruin”

Seated again

Today’s guest picture is a shot of camel racing.  My daughter Annie sent it, having come across it, as one does, at a country fair in a south London park.  The things that you see in a big city! Like yesterday, I spent quite a lot of time sitting down again today but unlike yesterday,Continue reading “Seated again”

No point

Today’s guest picture is a view of a bridge over the Elbe in Dresden taken by my brother on his trip there earlier this month. We were promised a fine start but with dire warnings of heavy rain to follow so Dropscone and I were pleased to get a sunny spell for our morning run. Continue reading “No point”

Just in time

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who enjoyed a spell of good weather in the Lake District last week.  It shows Grasmere. We had a bit of good weather here today but only a bit and fortunately it came just at the time that Dropscone and I were out on the morning run. Continue reading “Just in time”

Over the hill…but not far away

Today’s guest picture, taken by my sister Mary on a lovely day in Brighton recently, shows all that is left of the West Pier. The sun was shining when I woke up and I had had a good night’s sleep and my hip was a bit eased so my mind turned to cycling. Dropscone wasContinue reading “Over the hill…but not far away”

A bit of everything

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my daughter Annie, who has been in Devon.  It just goes to show, she says, that they have gates down there too. Since it was both  a pleasant day and a Sunday, I took the speedy bike out for a spin up the main road to theContinue reading “A bit of everything”

Slow progress

No guest picture again today but a big welcome to the first siskin in the garden for several weeks instead. It was mild yet again with gentle winds today, perfect for cycling and mowing the lawn and so I went cycling and mowed the lawn.  Everything in the garden was literally lovely and the onlyContinue reading “Slow progress”

Back to normal

Today’s guest picture which was sent by my brother-in-law Mike, shows his granddaughter Lara practising to be a ton up kid. After the excitements of yesterday, life retuned to normal today and Dropscone appeared promptly after breakfast and we went off for our usual morning run.  The weather kept up its recent record of beingContinue reading “Back to normal”

Humming a well known song.

Today’s guest picture was supplied by Sandy.  Because I was in the choir, I missed much of the goings on on the Baton Relay day.  To make up for this, Sandy has kindly sent me a picture of the mounted Cornet carrying the baton down the Kirk Wynd with an escort of flags of allContinue reading “Humming a well known song.”
