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.

Bank Holiday August 2015.

Bank Holiday August 2015.
As per usual the August Bank holiday was wet and damp.
Still got in a few walks with Pepe round the lake and  Park.
Spotted these two young men that had just caught a nice big carp.


Turned out to be 10.5 lbs in weight
Nice to meet a couple of nice young men, got out of the car that morning and discovered a dozen or so of those miniature silver containers, I was told by one person that they were for air guns, but then another person said they were used by youngsters to get high!!, what a sad world we are becoming that some youngsters have to resort to that kind of thing these days!.

On the Saturday there was a Family Fun Day for the Pre school children run by the volunteer rangers, one of which told me that the council wanted £20 for the use of the field, What do we get for our Rates then??.




Insect box made by the Young Rangers group.

And a bigger version!.


 This little fellow couldn't find a bigger stick could he!.


Plenty of people dodging the showers, it made the blinds at the Cafe look very inviting!.
Not many sailing on the lake.

 There I was thinking that Starling speckled feathers was so you couldn't see them in the trees, nearly missed this one set against the flagstones in Hyde Market right under my seat!.


 Out and about, Mate Bob sent me this good picture in his garden Mr Fox dining out with Mr Hedgehog the other night.

On Sunday Son John gave me this great boat he had scratchbuilt a couple of years ago, sell it and give the money to a charity he said!, sold it and now just have to find a charity to help with their good works, Thanks John!!.



 On the plant front, got another nice flower on my Hoya Cardosa, (Wax Plant) the only trouble is they only last a few days, still I have got it flowering!.


..............................................................................................
If God wanted us to go metric, surely he would have appointed ten apostles!.

Adam was the only married man not to have a Mother- in-law, and he lived in paradise!.

There was this fellow that gave his wife a complete mink outfit!, a 12 bore shotgun and some traps!

We were so poor that when the wolf came to the door we ate it!.

Its the way I tell em.

That's all for now folks.
