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.

Busy weekend, 15-16.July 2017.

Saturday it was off down to Solihull for the Wedding of my grandson Jacob to Beth Arnold!.
The wedding service was in the Solihull chapel and the reception was in a big white Gazebo in the grounds.


Nice wedding cake, not seen one like this before, very nice with extra fruit with each slice!.


Then it was off to the park across the way, picked up my camera from the car and took a few pictures!.

Think the bride likes purple!


The happy couple!


The Teal parents.

The brides parents.

The Tiller  Teal Girls,


The Teal Grandparents, notice the Greater Tufted Hatless Teal on the left.

The brides family.

My beautiful grandchildren, two down one to go!

The lovely bride!.

As usual the photos seemed to go on forever but the lady photographer did a good job lining up the different groups for me to snap!.

Then it was back to the reception and the meal.


There was even one of those old fashioned ice cream bikes and it seems though Beth is setting things right from the start and getting Jacob doing the servicing up.


My youngest Granddaughter with her young man Jared, he is going to be a missionary in August in the London mission area, really nice young man and I'm sure he is going to do a great job.





Not many of me in the pictures, but I got this one that someone sent me whilst I was chatting to Jean one of the other Grand parents, would rather be on the other side of the camera really!.

H

Had a safe journey home and picked up Pepe who had stayed overnight at friends Bob & Joyce who said he had been no trouble at all!.

Nice to go out and about but nice to be home in your own bed isn't it!

Sunday 

It was off to the Reddish Vale Fun Day and as the weather was good they had a great turn out!.

All the old country and western hits, brought back pleasant memories of our years line dancing!.
 

Plenty of places for drinks.


Mind the baby Punch.

Handy seating area.

The men in sheds that meet at the park regularly were selling some of their bikes they had reclaimed at very reasonable prices. 



The cadets there as well, very smart.


The kids were having a great time on the climbing tower.

Looking over to the field from the information centre.

Last but not least the ladies singing all the old favourites! very popular.

So all in all a great weekend and was quite content to go to the lake today and just sit there and chat over drinks and dinner at the Garden Centre Cafe, with friends.
Must be getting old!.

Ever wondered about those people that pay a fortune for those little bottles of water?.
Try spelling Evian backwards!.

I went to the shops yesterday and treated myself to a toilet brush.
Its no good though, I'm having to going back to paper! 

What's the best way to kill a variety act 
Go for the Juggler!
