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.

Coot family on Saturday 12th May

Saturday the 12th saw Pepe and I at the lake, nice and sunny but you still needed a jumper on.
Walking Pepe round the smaller of the two lakes we came across this family of Coots



This family are from higher up the middle channel

 The family that had their nest robbed and damaged by predators a couple of weeks ago, has rebuilt that one and are still sat on it, hopefully with some more chicks to come.

To-day after Sunday dinner John and I are going to be playing in his bath, no not with our plastic ducks!,
We are going to ballast the Narra boat, and has I've only got a shower the draught will be too much even for a Narra boat, I've put a few dials and gauges complete with bezels on the boat this morning ie fuel, pump out and in waste gauges and control  panels.
If all goes well this afternoon I will publish pictures of these, there again it could just be the wheelie bin where its been put!.

There are a lot of dumb people out there,how about these.

The wheels spinning, but the hamsters dead.

His antenna doesn't pick up all channels.

Missing a few buttons on his remote control.

A few feathers short of a whole duck, hey that sounds like me!.

A few clowns short of a circus.
