Welcome to my new Blog



Welcome to my Blog.
My Blog is mostly about my hobbies, ie Model boats,Cross Stitch, Gardening, Days out and about and Photography with pictures taken at and around our Model Boat club at Etherow Country Park, where I can be found quite a few days a week on the landing stage, you might recognize the hat and the dog rather than me. My models and other hobbies can be found in the tabs at the top above the header picture.
There will also be entries of days out with my long haired Chihuahua "Pepe", weather permitting of course.

Mooring weight

Back in November 2010 (was it that far back?) I had an idea for a mooring weight for Velda that she had seen previously, so it was on with the thinking cap and I had a fall of soot !
The outcome is this, a bit more decorative than a lump of lead.
As bought

A coat of Green

A touch of Yellow
Black highlights


Add some roses
canal art added


Top as well


Think " her indoors" will like it ??

Will come in for the Narra Boat if not!

Two psychiatrists were in a restaurant. One said , "See that man over there, well, he claims to understand women" 
"Really,"  said his friend, "and he's a professional colleague?" 
"No, He's a patient"

The brewery Manager called round , hat in hand, to solemnly announce that her husband Fred, had suffered a tragic and fatal accident at work. he had fallen into a vat of beer and drowned.
"Oh dear , Did he suffer much?" asked the bereaved wife. 
"I don't think so," said the manager."He got out twice to go to the loo"

That's all folks !
