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.

BC then AD now AV

Perhaps your wondering if I've finally flipped my lid with the title,  well its this to me, 
BC=before Christ.
AD= from the birth of Christ.
AV = after Velda.
I took the Ozzie's to the station on Saturday, they were going to Birmingham and then hire car-ing to Nottingham where Bryan comes from then back to Birmingham to fly home to OZ ( When ??)
Whilst I wanted to be quiet at home Babs and Bryan made me get out and about, I took them first to the  MCFC tour as they are both footie mad, I'm not,  but found the tour very interesting with all the silly money involved these days.

Hot off the press

Home team changing room.

Then next day it was a trip to Manchester city Centre where Babs hadn't been for years, neither had I since I've retired, so it was all new to the three of us!
We just had to go on the big wheel so I could take some pictures for my mate Bob! 
High init!!

Higher still from up here!!

Brick tower in the distance is Strangways prison

Manchester Cathedral

Better stop now, I've got loads more but its boring to others isn't it.

We three went to numerous meals out with Son John's family and this is my two beautiful granddaughters at Frankie and Benny's restaurant
Rachel and Ruth

Then we had a day in Stockport so I could go to the bank, Babs thought it was quite quaint,



And the old mixed in with the new they both liked




The Police in the foreground don't look too happy do they?

So all in all I was kept busy leading up to and after the funeral, I've been helping John at his work a couple of days and Pepe loves it as he runs up and down the corridors all day, you didn't think I'd leave him at home all day did you!.

Stockport Chapel
Barks like mad if anyone comes to the door here as well as home.

What do you think of the new title at the top of the blog, will allow me to be a bit more general with this blog.

Took my boat "AZIZ" to the club model judging last night, finished last year but never shown, so as I'm throwing myself into everything at the moment to keep from fretting I thought I would show it this year, Will let you know how I went on, with 30 lights on it people must have thought I'd brought a Christmas tree.

The woman was booking a holiday for her husband.
The travel agent asked if she had any destination in mind.
"Anywhere in the Bermuda Triangle", she said.
