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.

Action men and Super Women

Last night I went to the club as it was the AGM, met John there and we were very pleased to hear that the club had made two new trophies! One for Graham Harling and one for Velda!.
The one for Graham is for the best "J" Class sailor and Velda's is for the best static or diorama.
The Graham Harling trophy

The Velda Teal Trophy

I was lucky enough to be presented with a trophy for the best kit build boat on the night
So my luck is changing it seems, its long overdue!


Whilst out getting something for dinner (See above!) I called into the local Manchester Dogs home charity shop and ask if they had any Action men,has I couldn't see any on display, to my surprise she said "I've got a bag full in the back!" so I then thought "how much" but to my amazement she came back with a bag full at £1 each! and one even had a wet suit on! so I bought one for John as well for his boat that only had shorts on though, will make up for the fact he paid a £1 for an egg the day before!!
So my luck was in again.

As the more observant of you will have noticed I've had my vertical blinds fitted and very nice too
With curtains
With blinds
Hopefully will save a lot of work in the future!

At John's for Sunday dinner Pepe enjoyed himself helping sort out the Christmas decorations, and  really liked the snowman with the big carrot nose!


One last picture honestly

This ships wheel in the club house has passed Commodores down the left side and passed secretaries down the right side and as you can see Velda's name is up there, she would like that and the Trophy named after her even though she was a very private person she would be thrilled to be recognised for her efforts in the club!

The human body is an interesting phenomenon. A pat on the back can result in a swollen head!

Education is what you get from reading the fine print,
Experience is what you get from not reading it!

There are two types of people. Those with swimming pools and those who can't keep their heads above water.

That's all folks!
