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.

Cold at the lake

Cold at the lake,2.2.2015.
 Sunday went to Son John's for dinner, there were 8 of us sat down Dad, Mum, two daughters, two Missionaries and a friend of Youngest g/daughter!, and of course me, lovely dinner as usual!.
Thats not a funny hat he's got on, its a wooden Dolphin on the window ledge behind him, came out well though.

Is this a bit over the top, perhaps its for the child to say he had a BMW earlier in life!.


A hybrid goose!.

Nice little fancy pigeon 

Five cormorants there today.

Nice to have a big minder hey.

One taken by my Mate "Bob the Abell" with his Leica camera, that is the difference you get for your money!.

Skating on the frozen lake.

Pepe in his commando kit.

Nice to see friend Sylvia back at the lake after her bad road accident before Christmas, had a lucky escape, with only a fractured wrist and sternum, which was bad enough but after a head on collision in a small car its no wonder she plumped for the same type of car again (Audi A3) another type of car could have been the death of her!.
She said today the front end of the car was wiped out but the cockpit was not touched, the airbags went off and her and her little dog were safe inside.
The little dog "Molly" showed no ill effects this morning on their first day out in the car and jumped straight in, which is a good thing isn't it, could have been traumatised with it all.

"Lost dog" said the newspaper notice, "Has three leg, blind in one eye, large scar on throat, right ear missing, tail broken in two places, no teeth, recently castrated, Answers to Lucky".

Sid put some spot remover on his dog, now he's gone!.

That's all folks

    1. Yes she said it was like one of those F1 racing crashes, with everything destroyed and her sat there in the cage safe.
