Arrivals

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary.  She came across this artwork in an outdoor exhibition in a park.  It is called The Tudor Ball and it is by Lars Fisk.  Sometimes I wonder if I should have been an artist. It was even hotter today than yesterday and by the afternoon, the thermometerContinue reading “Arrivals”

A summer day (and night)

Today’s guest picture comes from the phone camera of our younger son, Al who took it while sitting on the new bench in our garden this afternoon.

Having had long term back problems, I have many exercisesContinue reading “Little progress”

Sandy and Toot make it rain

Today’s picture, another from my son and daughter-in-law’s USA trip, shows two frogs at the Frog Pond in Boston. I am trying not to overdo my cycling mileage at the moment so I was happy that Dropscone is away refereeing juvenile golf matches and that my cello playing friend Mike came to pay me aContinue reading “Sandy and Toot make it rain”
