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.

Spring 2014???.

Spring 2014?, are we sure of this, only last week was sat out in the garden with a cool drink after doing a bit of tidying up and then the next thing it's back to the thick woolies again!.
Perhaps the change of header to the spring version is too early hey, "Nar cast a clout till May is out" don't they say?. 
Saturday, Pepe and I went to Uppermill to collect the latest pictures we had taken the previous week to be framed, just managed to squeeze the car into a space in front of the shop, always bad parking in Uppermill but worse on a Saturday.
After picking up the picture which are to exhibition standard from Millyard Gallery, popped Pepe on his lead and had a nice walk up the village, never mind that you are thinking!, what about the pictures, well here they are, frames to match the last one, though a little slimmer to match the size of the picture.
Honeysuckle

Pansies

Roses.

Back to the walk with Pepe,
After the walk we went to the "Limekiln Cafe" mainly because they allow dogs in, there again the food is good as well.
Well , are you going to order then you plonker!, or am I going to die of hunger, I don't think so Pepe you could live off your fat for ages!


Happy and settled now the order is in, A breakfast, only the small version mind you.
To burn off some of those calories we then had a walk along the canal at the back of the Cafe.
Looking towards the Village


Looking back to the cafe



They knew how to build in these days didn't they and without all the modern equipment they have these days, still standing and a marvel to see!.
It was a quick look round the nearby garden centre, but too cold to sit outside and have another drink, so it was off home.
Sunday it was off to Etherow to see the guy's doing their steering competition and though it was cold and overcast it didn't stop these hardy members having a go.
 Judge and jury?.

Nice crowd and there is Alan the Vice commodore in the left background helping out a youngster with his parents, that's what it's all about helping each other with experience and idea's and that youngster could be the Commodore in the years to come, we need more youngsters in the hobby!.

I can imagine him thinking I could build one of those eventually!.

After that I was off to John's for Sunday dinner and has the two eldest G/Children were out at the dedication of the new Chapel in the city centre there was only the four of us and the three dogs of course!.
Joanne sent me the latest picture of Velda's tree at Dovestones 

 Still standing after all the high winds we have had this winter, Velda would like seeing these two beauties Jessie and Max!.
Well that's it for now.

Do not complain about growing old
Many are denied the privilege.

Is a geriatric a German cricketer who captures three successive wickets?.

By the time you reach 75 years of age you've learnt everything.
 All you have to do is to try and remember it!.
