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.

Ice Road Truckers

Yesterday John and I went to Rotherham to do a few jobs there, the first thing was getting there,see video.


Once there, the first thing was being welcomed by two of the members saying "Do you want a bacon Buttie" what a fabulous welcome "Yes please was my quick reply!"
Whilst working on the various jobs one of the chaps said "I've given your little dog a couple of treats" is it al-right to give him another", showing me a treat that an Alsation would be given, "don't tell me you gave him two of those" I said, "no he replied the others were smaller",  "thank goodness for that I said, just to let you know his stomach is the size of a ping pong ball", "Well it isn't now said John!"
All for me?
No!

We finished the last job, replacing the two reinforced glass panels in the front door about 5-30pm and set off for home tired but satisfied that we had done a good job and left the place a lot better for our visit, the journey home was a lot better even though it was dark, snow was on the roadside in places but the gritters had done a good job,  arriving back at John's to pick up my car and got home at 7-30pm
Long day but a good one!
