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 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.

Late again!.

Late again, I'll have people thinking I'm not well, specially my sister Barbara in Oz!.
Well I don't know how I found time to work in the past!. I seem to have plenty to do all the time, I was talking to a friend of mine at the lake the other day and he was down in the dumps and feeling sorry for himself, what do you do in your spare time say's I, nothing really say's he, get's someone in to clean and wash and iron and then has time to feel sorry for himself. 
Well I don't go down that route, I keep busy and do everything myself  it helps to keep busy and then you don't have time to feel sorry for yourself do you.
My lady friend Marjorie makes me feel awful when I see the size of her garden and the way she keeps it so nice and colourful, so I decided to do a bit of re-organising in my garden, first was throw out the dead Summer stuff and replace with stuff that comes up every year.
 Offer on for two so we had one each.

These are like this all year round so that will save a bit next year, if I planted them right that is?.

Whilst at the garden centre took these pictures in their gift section.

What it's all about really 

Ho Ho Ho

Marjorie telling Father Christmas what she wants him to bring her, that's the fun side of her coming out.

Tuesday night was the Model Boat Christmas Dinner, this year as well as a different venue it was company for me with Marjorie there also, we were sat at a table with lots of friends I've made at the club over the years and I'm pleased to say they made Marjorie very welcome and she really enjoyed the night and the company.

Two English Roses, 
Marjorie and Joyce, Bob the builders better half!.

This week it was Pepe's turn at the Beauty parlour, same place as last time, "Mucky Paws" up in Oldham near to where John lives, does a lovely job on him and he seems to like it there as the lady has a nice calm dog of her own there as well.


And after, washed trimmed, nails cut and smells nice too!

Who's a pretty boy then?.

An old lady was in court for stealing a tin of peaches.
"Why did you steal them" the judge asked, "they looked so nice and I didn't have any money" she said
The judge feeling sorry for her asked her how many peaches were in the tin, "Four" she said.
Right said the judge "In view of your years I'm going to be lenient with you".
Right, that will be four days in jail, one for each peach.
Court Dismi- "Your honour cried her old man
My wife also stole a tin of peas!!.
Its the way I  tell em!.
Thats all folks.
