Ooops!

Today’s guest picture is a very strange aperture in the clouds sent to me by our son Tony. Perhaps the weather gods had opened their kitchen window to see what he was up to down below. We had a second sunny day running here today.   Once again, it was quite chilly after breakfast so IContinue reading “Ooops!”

Over the hill

The guest picture of the day was sent to me by my older son, Tony.  He was much impressed by this robot lawn mower mowing a public space in Edinburgh.  I was too so although it is not the sharpest photo, I have used it. We had another day of incessant sunshine and I wasContinue reading “Over the hill”

Getting my goat

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother.  He has been a bit unwell lately and unable to go for his customary vigorous walks but he is recovering well and taking pictures in flatter places for the moment.  This is the ferry across Portsmouth harbour.  Mrs Tootlepedal and I took our bikes across on this ferryContinue reading “Getting my goat”

Over the hill…but not far away

Today’s guest picture, taken by my sister Mary on a lovely day in Brighton recently, shows all that is left of the West Pier. The sun was shining when I woke up and I had had a good night’s sleep and my hip was a bit eased so my mind turned to cycling. Dropscone wasContinue reading “Over the hill…but not far away”

Mrs Tootlepedal is out to lunch again

Today’s guest picture shows Matilda enjoying a little sunshine but warmly clad in the hat and shawl which her granny knitted for her. Mrs Tootlepedal was in adventurous mood again today and since the wind was light and the weather was fair, she suggested lunch at Newcastleton. Newcastleton is only ten miles away but betweenContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal is out to lunch again”

Time for a lie down

Today’s guest picture is a copy of a postcard sent to me by Ziriacus.  Fed up with our puny bridges here,  it shows the fine railway bridge that crosses the river Wupper near his home in Germany. We saw a glimpse of the sun today.  Not much of a glimpse and not for long butContinue reading “Time for a lie down”

The real Bew castle

Today’s picture is another from the camera of Langholm exile Tom Elliot.  It is an eye catching bougainvillea. It was another grey day when we woke up and as we had planned an outing with Jean, we were a bit worried about a forecast of rain to come.  I stared out of the window…. …whileContinue reading “The real Bew castle”
