The weather gods never get bored of their little joke

Today’s guest picture comes from Irving, a keen fisherman.  Knowing that we have not got much water in our rivers at the moment, he sent me this view of the Einag Falls. They are on a tributary of the river Oykel in the Highlands where he was fishing three weeks ago.  He adds that heContinue reading “The weather gods never get bored of their little joke”

A good decision

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother’s recent peregrinations.  He passed the south door of York Minster on his travels. I was slightly annoyed to find that I was no better when I woke up this morning.  If anything, I was a little worse.  My throat was better and I had stopped sounding like aContinue reading “A good decision”

A well chosen moment

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone and shows his fine looking grandson Leo, who was visiting last weekend. The letters WWW may have a common meaning in today’s wired up world but to us in Langholm they stand for Warm, Wet and Windy and we had another WWW day today. The morningContinue reading “A well chosen moment”

A certain lack of vitamin D

Today’s guest picture was kindly sent to me by Southampton blogger, Marie and shows the view from her window on a recent visit to Canada.  She must be a bit fed up to be back home if her weather is anything like ours. On the swings and roundabouts principle, the weather gods are certainly makingContinue reading “A certain lack of vitamin D”

An unexpected outing

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone.  He is lurking in the south of England while visiting his eldest son and took the opportunity to visit Chartwell, home of Winston Churchill. The day started badly as we woke to the sound of heavy rain but I was not deterred.  After breakfast, I put on my waterproofContinue reading “An unexpected outing”

Wandering

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s visit to Rye.  It speaks for itself.  Simple. I had to speak to myself today because Mrs Tootlepedal went off to Edinburgh to commune with TWGSP.  My conversation with myself touched on cycling but when Dropscone rang up to say that the morning run had takenContinue reading “Wandering”

Fairly fruitless walk

Today’s guest picture, from my brother’s camera, speaks for itself. There was little or no wind and the thermometer was showing a very stingy 4.5°C when Dropscone, Scott and I set out for a morning pedal to Gair and back after breakfast.   As a result, the start of our journey was shrouded in a clammyContinue reading “Fairly fruitless walk”

Looking

Today’s guest picture shows an approach to the village of Ilam in Staffordshire.  It is on the banks of the splendidly named Manifold River and was visited by my brother Andrew last month in pursuit of a cream tea. I had no need of a cream tea because Dropscone dropped in for morning coffee andContinue reading “Looking”
