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.

This week, 7th Dec 2013

Had a nice few days and nights this week!.
Friday it was to the Stable Gate at Denton for a meal with my lady friend Marjorie and then on to the Ashton Stake house, (Note the spelling Stake not Steak) where the grandchildren were singing in the Christmas Carol Service there, so gave Marjie the chance to meet the rest of the family and some of the members of the church there.
She now knows that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, (Mormons) don't eat their young or worship much different from other churches!.
On the way home we stopped off at the Stable Gate again for a drink and a chat and to our surprise the place was empty!, it had been heaving earlier when food was being served, still it was nice and quiet with all the kids home and in bed, so quiet that after last orders were rung, we got locked in and had to go and find someone to let us out, what a pair of stop out's, still a nice evening.
Saturday thought I'd take Pepe to Etherow for a walk and exercise myself, there was not a soul in sight, the cafe was empty, so after a Bacon buttie and a drink it was off round the lakes.

Are you sure he's mine?.

Leaves everywhere

New badger sett just appeared.

There were two other people in the park, these two having a picnic!.

Bridge over leafy waters

Coat of many colours

Solitary Coot

He's still following me!.

Solitude.

When we got back to the car Pepe was black underneath and thought he was from the Blackfoot Indian tribe, and I'd had him washed and trimmed for Christmas the previous Monday, What a Gorrrp!, had to wash him, his coat and towel when I got home, won't be doing that again in a hurry.

Had a trip to Daisy Nook yesterday, bought some compost what can you say about Compost!, the lunch was nice and we sat at the table next to Roy Barraclough, of Les Dawson and Coronation Street fame, nice chap. then it was a run over to The Spindles shopping mall in Oldham , very nice Christmas decorations there.
Just got back from a nice dinnertime meal at the Hare and Hounds at Werneth Low with Bob and Joyce, same place we had the Club Christmas dinner last week, Must think about a diet after Christmas, That's it thought about it, perhaps more exercise instead!.

The Doctor said to the elderly patient, "I have some good news and some bad news, The bad news is we have had to amputate both your legs"
"Whats the good news" asked the horrified patient.
The patient in the next bed wants to buy your slippers"
Boom Boom
