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.

Awards night 2013

In my last post I mentioned that I'd been to the Hare and Hounds at Werneth Low for lunch with my good friends Bob and his wife Joyce, had a nice meal with Pepe sat good as gold in a chair at the table, I count myself rich in the fact that I have such good friends as these and many others in the boat club!.
Thinking that the day couldn't get much better, went to the AGM at the club that night and as well as the confirming of the officials for the coming year, it was also the awards for the various events and competitions throughout the year. if you are interested in the results of the awards 
If not I will give you the short version, 
I received the David Beaumont Trophy for services to the Club by a non committee member, and if you zoom in you might see that Velda's name is on the top left and mine bottom right, nice to have both our names there!.


I also received Joint 1st kit built trophy with the treasurer Geoff, we will have to share it during the year, I will be fed-up dusting it by then anyway!

I'm on there twice as well 2011 and 2013

 And there is the boat I entered this year, and here is the beautiful model submitted by Geoff the treasurer!.


Well there you go, what a great finish to a wonderful day with friends and club members and to get trophies for what you like doing is just icing on the cake really!.

Thanks to John, the other moderator for the festive header!.

An elderly man went to the doctors for his test results. The doctor said "I've got some good news and some bad"
"What's the bad news" asked the man.
The doctor said "I'm afraid you only have a week to live"
"Oh my God!" exclaimed the old man, "Thats terrible! so what's the good new?. 
The doctor said "They're going to name the disease after you!.
Boom Boom
