Sea Plane Trip

We went on the sea plane trip from Loch Lomond over the lochs and isles of the west coast today. This was a birthday present for my mother and had been postponed from April because the weather was awful then. This was the wee plane which takes off from the Cameron House Hotel. The weather […]

Another Pine Marten

The young marten is back again! I think Tora may have scared him off before he finished his nuts…..

The ideal man and woman

I’m sure I am pretty old fashioned and doubtless my mum is too (although she is probably entitled to be as she is getting on a bit now). I’m not mentioning anything intimate in these descriptions but this is what I thought should be done by a man and a woman respectively. Man Appearance – […]

Fussy Eaters

I was talking to my Mum and Dad yesterday about what people will and won’t eat. Myself, I will eat anything apart from liver, kidneys and tripe. I’m not that fond of milk chocolate but I would eat it at a pinch. As against that – R claims he is not a fussy eater, but […]

Unblocking the stream

We’ve a large pond in the garden. It is fed by a small stream and I am constantly worried that it will stop running – I’ve no idea of where it draws from or what we do if it stopped. Yesterday I noticed that the flow had stopped, and I had to manually top the […]

Probably very illegally I learned to ride a motorbike on the runway there. We didn’t think that there were any flights coming in (even in its heyday it was hardly […]

Still going strong

I must say that Tora has not looked for Schrodi once since he died. He is also now a much happier and more confident cat. Yesterday he caught three rodents, one mouse, one short tailed vole, and one unidentified creature which had been largely eaten. The picture is of him having jumped into a cupboard […]

Vegan Pizza

Sorry to have to go against the trend here but I am going to and I don’t care what anyone says about me on Twitter or any other one of these inane social media sites. I’ve nothing against vegetarian food, and in fact I don’t eat a lot of meat myself, but this modern trend […]

Seagull and Slice

My Mum and Dad came for lunch today (and very nice it was too). One of the things I got in was some vanilla custard slices as I knew my Dad was very fond of them. To be honest, neither R or I like them though, and we were left with one over. I wasn’t […]
