This isn’t a wee story about the iconic “western”. Today it was the 7th birthday of the Edinburgh variant of parkrun. After a few weeks of feeling under the weather I am now lurgy and mucus free. Is that too much information? I was swithering with phlegm, so you got off likely. Free of lurg ...

Boris

Photo’s, like you I’ve taken 1000’s and in this digital age once taken, they sit, generally unseen like some long forgotten artifect in the Indiana Jones repository of important archeological stuff. Like many my phone has become the camera of initial use, the “pocket instamatic” of the 21st Century. However I like the opportunities offered ...

Happy Autumn!

That was the subject line in a recently received email. Initially I was suspicious. Was this an unscrupulous spammer using the seasonal shift for their own ends.

He’s on the vets surgical theatre list for oral surgery, bits needing cut and other bits removed. In the meantime his “relatives” do what ...

Our neighbours across the road have decided to undertake some serious cosmetic surgery on their garden. The boundary that was highlighted by pine tree saplings, twenty five years ago is now a light defeating wall of wood and pine needles. Our kindly neighbour’s have decided the trees must go and have offered as much wood ...

Stumbled across this little beastie on the evening walk with Boris. Do you know if it’s a frog or a toad? What type? To appeal to readers of a Fantasy bent would it turn into a prince or princess if it were kissed?
