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.

Today at Oldham. 27th May 2015.

Today at Oldham. 27th May 2015.

It was off early to Oldham today to get Pepe washed, cut  and beautified, 


Lovely job by Kate Schofield of Mucky Pups!.
Whilst he was being done I was off back to the Lees Village teashop for a nice cooked breakfast and a rummage round the charity shops there.

Bargains of the day were these two hardback books at 50p each

And this retractable Dog lead at £1!


After picking the lad up we were off to Dovestones and after another drink at the Buttie wagon we were off to Velda's tree!.

As you can see the scenery at Dovestones is great, Daughter-in -law Joanne was lucky enough to be brought up in this area!.





The site of Velda's tree, Plantation at Indians Head.

Getting a little more packed now.





Tree doing well!








After another drink back at the Buttie wagon, where the nice lady always gives Pepe a doggie bag of Sausage and Burger bits, it's not just him though she gives John's Cockapoos some too when they go!. 

Called at the fish shop on the way home, situated in the Garden centre at the Snipe retail park, bought a few more Golden Angels and thought I'd better get another filter refill.

You used to get a refill with the plastic container included, I've got loads for them and I can understand when the guy said "they don't give you the plastic part now", But I can't understand the fact that the price is still the same!, is it me, as I thought it would be a bit cheaper with the biggest part now not included.
A bit like Mars bars " we have made them smaller instead of putting the price up", I bought one the other day and couldn't decide if it was a Bite size one or the regular size!.

Enough whining hey, it was a nice day and that's all that matters really isn't it!.

"Mr Minister" boomed the back-bencher, "What are you going to do about the Abortion Bill"
"Shhh, not so loud" said the Minister, "I'm paying it tomorrow"

If your dog is too fat you're not getting enough exercise!.

Had my Tetanus jab the other day.(true)
But Lockjaw means never having to say you're sorry.

When God created man, she was only joking!.

Thats all for now folks.

  1. Nice blog, Duckie
    Looks very similar to the Torrs at Glossop

    The Mars Bar trick was very sensible

    You could make a restful video of your latest aquarium fish?
