Crowd scene

Today’s guest picture from our son Tony shows the East Wemyss dogs enjoying their day in the sun beside the Firth of Forth. We had a pretty nice day here too, although a chilly wind reminded us that we still have some way to go before jumpers and coats can be light heartedly discarded. Still,Continue reading “Crowd scene”

Hardbacks

Today’s  guest picture was sent to me by Laurie, a proud resident of the state of Maine.  While our spring is creeping over the windowsill, her winter is still being delivered…though it is gift wrapped. Sitting and singing was the order of the day which made it a bit annoying that this was also theContinue reading “Hardbacks”

Welcome home

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  He was officiating at a golf match near Galashiels at the weekend and took the time to photograph this bridge over the new Borders Railway line which splits the course in two. It was another fine day but rather chilly in the morning so I was happy to wait in andContinue reading “Welcome home”

Another song cycle

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by my sister Mary, who was on the Unite for Europe March yesterday (as was my sister Susan).  It was rather mentally dislocating to see this peaceful and sunny picture after the recent events nearby. We had our third consecutive day of beautiful weather here and we areContinue reading “Another song cycle”

Singing in the sun

Today’s guest picture is the last from my sister Mary’s visit to Regents Park.  It has been good to have such sunny pictures while we have been rather gloomy up here. Being Sunday, Mrs Tootlepedal went off to sing in the church choir after breakfast and I set about making a lamb stew for theContinue reading “Singing in the sun”

What a difference a day makes

Today’s guest picture shows a work of art outside the Royal Academy that caught my sister Mary’s eye.  I used to make shapes like that with the children at school. Mrs Tootlepedal went off to Edinburgh to visit Matilda, TWGSP, but was unable to produce a photographic record of the trip as Matilda was sufferingContinue reading “What a difference a day makes”

Another day, another pedal, another tootle

Today’s guest picture is another of my brother’s pictures of Hardwick Hall.  It puts everything into perspective as they say. Today’s weather had good points and bad points about it and they were both caused by the same thing.  It was raining when we woke and it had obviously been raining all night…. …but theContinue reading “Another day, another pedal, another tootle”
