  • above pic copyright of the SWT - cropped it to catch the chicks but didn't work

  • Diane you are suffering.   Usually sit in the conservatory and read but this weather tend to sit in the lounge until the sun moves out of the back and round - then it is cooler.  We are facing E to W so get sun at back in the morning and at the front in the afternoon.  I don't mind the heat but only when on holiday and can sit out and sunbathe, cooling off in a pool,  not going to happen this year.   Try and keep cool and also the rest of you over here.

    Alan - that's shocking news about the chicks.

  • Hi Diane - Yes, enjoyed holiday but now busy in the garden at home! OH was worried yesterday, lots of work to do, but today we started work outside before 9am and achieved a lot. As you may remember he is in his 82nd year and while his brain is only 50 years he worries because his body is slowing down a bit. I do have to tell him to stop before he gets too tired. Tomorrow he will be fishing in a loch way up in the hills, rowing a boat, completely alone except for the odd osprey. He has a cell phone and an inflatable jacket so all I can do is hope for the best!

    Take care -

  • Heather: Oh, dear. He'll be really isolated. I'm sure he'll be fine, though. Cell phones are a great invention. :-) I can empathize with him. I need my "alone time" in nature, too. Otherwise, I'd be insufferable. (Some people would say that I already am. LOL!)

    He sounds like a very young 82. I've been really frustrated this summer because I can't just work and work like I used to, so I can imagine how he must feel.

    Take care, Heather!

  • Lynette: The front of my house gets the afternoon sun, too. I try to get my outdoors work finished in the morning. Afternoon UV is a little intense. I noticed today that I have freckles on my face for the first time in years! LOL And I've gained a whole inch on my bicep arm muscles. Woo Hoo!

    Oh, Lynette, I meant to say that I've really enjoyed your photos. Very, very lovely!

  • I have never tried to post a pic before and I'm not sure what I have done. However, this is OH and son, pic from 5 years ago, don't have a newer one on my computer.

  • Oh, my goodness, Heather. Isn't he a handsome one!!! Very distinguished and attractive!!! Oh, my!

    Who is the younger handsome gent?

    I so love the clothing! So what tartan are they wearing? Is it impolite to ask? Very, very beautiful!!!!!! And they could both be in the movies!

    Edit: Ah, so that's the son. They both are fine lookin' men.

  • Heather : Wonderful pic. Well done on posting it.

    Back to Eurovision now........Russian Grannies next.

  • The younger one is OH's son, my stepson. The tartan is Forbes, not our name but a tartan that OH is entitled to wear through his mother's line! I thought you would like to see the Highland Dress, Diane!

  • Heather, thank you. Absolutely glorious!

    I'm going to show this to my brother and tell him that he has to wear a kilt to his wedding! :-)))

    Edit: I used to date a guy who looked similar to your stepson. He was an Irish lad, though. From Dingle. 15 years younger than me.  HaHaHaHa!!!

  • Glad you enjoyed it, Diane! Yes, the Irish can have very similar looks to the Scots - same genes???!!! Not really sure.

  • Thank you so much, Heather. I really enjoyed looking at that photo.

  • Heather : Same genes different kilts!!!

  • Voted for Sweden in Eurovision. Romania was good too as was Cyprus.
