A Tootlepedal day

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew. He is still in London helping to sort out my sister’s affairs. He found time for a trip along the Thames today. It froze over night here but the temperature soon rose above freezing as the morning went on. It didn’t show any enthusiasm for actuallyContinue reading “A Tootlepedal day”

Six bridges!

Today’s guest picture is another stolen from contributions sent to me for the last camera club meeting. This is a view that Stan took when he was up a hill in the Ewes Valley. It shows just how flat and narrow the valley bottom is. Our spell of very mixed weather continued today, and itContinue reading “Six bridges!”

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”

Shortbread and a short walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent correspondent, Venetia. She has recently been on a trip to Norway. She was much amused to find that the pipes on this public bench were filled with hot water to ensure a comfortable seat on chilly days We didn’t get the friendly weather which we would haveContinue reading “Shortbread and a short walk”

Hey, ho, the wind and the rain

Today’s guest picture comes from my Oregon correspondent Gunta. The weather eased off enough recently to allow for a little canoeing in the creek below her house. We woke to gusty winds and some heavy rain showers. The wind kept going all day but the rain had the good manners to pack it in inContinue reading “Hey, ho, the wind and the rain”

A pedal at last

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan. It shows the handsome church where both she and my sister Mary read lessons at a carol service last Sunday. After our unusually warm day yesterday, temperatures came down to a more normal December level and the thermometer hung around at about 6°C all day. It didn’tContinue reading “A pedal at last”

Re-heated

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. While I was on top of Whita yesterday and looking across the Solway to Skiddaw, he and a friend, and their dogs, were on top of Skiddaw 2000 ft higher than me, and looking back at Whita (when they had stopped posing for a picture). WeContinue reading “Re-heated”

Dislegsia

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He wondered for a moment today if he was seeing a comet streaking across the sky, but it was nothing more exciting than an aeroplane catching the evening light. We had another ten-ten morning here today, 10°C inside the house and -10° outside. AContinue reading “Dislegsia”

Not a fan

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found the River Derwent in reflective mood the other day and kindly thought of my liking for bridge pictures. My sisters in London woke up to a heavy fall of snow today. Here we had another cold, frosty and dry day. It was foggy in theContinue reading “Not a fan”
