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.

Dog Show video


Well the past weekend just got better and better! 
After the good day at Etherow Lake with the boats, Pepe and I went to Debdale Park on Sunday morning to the Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home sponsored walk.
It was very sunny and hot and though we shouldn't complain it was very hot for the dog's. there was plenty of dog's water bowls about but a vet once told us not to let your dog drink from them as you could be introducing infection to your dog. I had Pepe's water with me so that was no problem but the queue for registering for the walk was quite long and in the sun, so I didn't bother, will send a donation later.





As you can see from the video I took it was very busy with all sorts of breeds,shapes and sizes, you know what they say about dogs and their owner looking similar!  
Then it was off up to Yorkshire to John's, No they've not moved house only Counties !!, the last couple of weeks the council have put up those fancy stone plinth's saying welcome to Yorkshire and going back welcome to Lancashire, which I thought odd as we are in Greater Manchester!, I'm proud to say I'm A Mancunian!, It seems they have always been in Yorkshire but regulated from Oldham, so its the hard and fast fraction that have made the council waste more money building these plinth's.
Well that's another gripe over, at John's we had an Al Fresco BBQ and it was well cooked by John and enjoyed by all the family.
Menu
Lamb and Beef burgers, hot dogs and kebabs with all the trimmings, followed by Strawberries and ice cream.
Pepe enjoyed his doggie bag to take home, a chicken kebab, didn't think a hot dog was appropriate!.
So all in all a great weekend, the best for a long long time.
