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.

Over the top to Barnsley

First thing you will notice is that there's no Video on this trip, I don't think the police would take very kindly to me filming as I drive along on my own!.

I took off for Model Slipway at Barnsley yesterday to pick up my next project and stopped for a bacon buttie on the way at a lay-by much to Pepe's delight.

Bacon Buttie stop


 I arrived at Barnsley about 11-30, Then sat with Laurie and Jackie in the conservatory with the doors wide open and the sun streaming in having our drinks and chatting, with Pepe playing on the lawn, should say dragging his box round the lawn, has he wasn't too happy being tied up!.
I had a grand tour of the workshops and saw how it was all put together, collected my kit which Laurie loaded for me and set off for home, then decided after another cheeseburger stop, it was such a nice sunny day it was a shame to waste it,

Tailgate seat full up on the return journey!
Are these the cave drawings of to-morrow I ask myself?

 So set the SatNav to Etherow!!, hoping to catch Bob and his good ladies there on his daily pilgrimage, but no luck it was packed out, but got a place though and spoke to Gly and then tried for a coffee but Pepe kept barking the place down when I left him tied up outside so had the coffee out of the flask I had in the car and sat on the wall in the sun.
So all in all a wonderful day, just hope to-morrow will be as sunny? for Ellesmere!!

The Kit, big init!!

    sounds like a great day out just by itself without the new kit you picked up
    Glad to see you are still eating well bacon butties and cheeseburgers although I suppose the cheeseburger had a lettuce leaf and a slice and tomato on! I should talk we are off out for lunch - a kebab!
