Recycling

Today’s guest picture shows Puffin Island off Anglesey.   My brother took the picture on a visit to Anglesey in May. We were offered a bright and breezy morning and I took the opportunity to gird up my loins and get out on the fairly speedy bike for the first time in October.  Because it wasContinue reading “Recycling”

Good timetabling

Today’s guest picture, from my ex-colleague Ada, shows a passing traveller whom she ran into (but not over)  on the road. The forecast said that it would start to rain at 3pm today and it was absolutely spot on which made it lucky that I had managed to get my day organised on that basis.Continue reading “Good timetabling”

Getting her eye in

Today’s guest picture, sent to me by her mother, shows the world’s greatest toddler considering hygienic matters. Just for the record I note that we had another dry day today with the addition of some welcome sunshine.  It would have been a good day for cycling but there were more important things to think about.Continue reading “Getting her eye in”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture shows my friend Bruce’s dog Guthrie relaxing in Sheffield where he is on holiday.  He had two walks yesterday and felt the need of a little lie down. As my knee was still sore, I was in full Guthrie mode today and did very little of note.  Another cold, windy, grey dayContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”

Fairwell, my lovely

As the Open Golf Tournament starts tomorrow at St Andrew’s, I thought that it would be appropriate to have another of Dropscone’s east coast golf course pictures as the guest offering today. The title of today’s post, which I stole from Raymond Chandler, explains why I had to get up at four o’clock this morning,Continue reading “Fairwell, my lovely”

Invasion

Today’s guest picture comes from our visitor, Marianne and shows the river Cramond in Edinburgh on a rare sunny day recently. When I woke up this morning, the wind had dropped, the sun was out, the sky was blue.  It was a day for cycling and I managed to make good use of as muchContinue reading “Invasion”

Too much choice

Today’s guest picture comes from my daughter who has acquired the use of a small allotment.  She is very proud of her chard which she has grown from seed. When I looked at the weather forecast last night, I noticed that the wind speed in the evening was recorded as ‘calm’,  i.e 0 mph.  ThisContinue reading “Too much choice”

Ever increasing circles

Today’s guest picture shows a most unusual gardener who was at work in Regent’s Park as my sister Mary walked by. My day started with double fun at the health centre where a novice vampire took a little blood from me and a kindly lady stabbed me in the shoulder.  With my blood test completeContinue reading “Ever increasing circles”

Peaking

Today’s guest picture was taken by my brother recently when walking part way along the Ruapehu round-the-mountain trail in NZ.  They are obliviously very keen on board walks there. My day today, like all Gaul in the time of Julius Caesar, was divided into three parts.  The morning was spent cycling, the afternoon, recovering fromContinue reading “Peaking”
