A general absence of sunshine

In need of some cheer, I have gone back into my files to find this guest picture of the day. It shows Tony’s dogs enjoying a sunny game of volleyball in his garden in East Wemyss. It was a miserable day here today. When it wasn’t raining, it was about to rain, and when itContinue reading “A general absence of sunshine”

It was a much better day today with a lot of sunshine and less tooth trouble.  On the down side it was only just above freezing and actually getting colder as the sun came up so Dropscone andContinue reading “A song and a smile”
