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.

Birthday Boy (Old git).

The 3rd of January 2013 already!, doesn't time fly!, when your this old.
Yesterday was my birthday and thank you for all the good wishes.

   I have reached the grand old age of 57!, that's not bad considering I'm a Selective Dyslectic, that mean's I get my numbers mixed up when it suits me, so alright I'm 75!!! 3 quarters of a century.

I think I would have looked after my body a bit better had I known I was going to last this long!, still no teeth, no hair, no gall bladder and plastic lens in my eyes (cataracts done), Velda always said I was trying  to escape in pieces!.
Last night John and the family and I went to the Stable gate for dinner, we thought it would be fairly slack after the Christmas and new Year DO's, but not a bit of it, it was packed out and being early I was abell to book a table before the family arrived, thank goodness
The food there as always was good and plenty of variety to suit all palates.
Duckie and the big Duckling

The girls
Ruth, Joanne and Rachel

The Guys
John and Jacob.
John just getting over the flu, perhaps that's a good advert for getting the Flu Jab next time as Joanne and I only had a mild dose.
