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.

Still out and about, June 2015.

Still out and about, June 2015.
Even though the weather is more like March than June!, Marjorie and I have still been getting out and about, shopping, dining out and picking up bargains at the various nurseries and Garden Centres in our area. 
Here is my garden at the present time, had plenty of help and expert advice from Marjorie who has been an avid gardener for years and has a beautiful garden of her own!.


This basket finally taking off, been very slow with the cold weather lately!.


Round the park (Etherow, where else) there is still an explosion of baby duckling hatching out.

Mallards 

Mandarins




Even spotted these tadpoles in the dipping pond!.

 Even the rats are breeding well, enjoying the food thrown down for these female mandarins.


 Round the edge of the lake where all the children feed the ducks there are always queues for the free bread and corn bought from the education centre.



Fancy pigeon, not even ringed!. 

The more shy ones are round the lakes
Little and large couple.


This one isn't shy, he is always cadging from people at the cafe 


Can't wait to get back to the Cafe in case anyone is having a sausage sandwich!

I think he is a Longhaired Chihuahua crossed with a Gannet!.

On the home front finally filled in my new Microwave, though its a higher power, it's much smaller than the old one, can't keep up with technology these days hey!.

Done with offcuts from John's beautiful new kitchen worktops, turned out well!.

How any punk rockers does it take to change a light bulb?.
Two.
One to change the bulb and another one to eat to old one!.

Why did the Doctor fail when he turned kidnapper?. 
No one could read his ransom notes!.

Well that's it for now folks.
