Getting To Know You
Sunday, July 18, 2010      12 comments

While we're waiting for me to (ahem) compose the next travelogue, I thought you might find this interesting. I got it from AspenHugger (who got it from DebbieAnne). She said to let her know if you blog it so she can read it; well, I think that's... Read more
Ironbridge, Day 2
Monday, July 12, 2010      20 comments

We stayed at a nice little bed-and-breakfast. Like everywhere, that kind of thing has changed in the UK. At one time farmers would put out discreet signs and you could stay at a farmhouse for around $24 or $25 the night, for two, in a comfy bed ... Read more

At the end of June we took a short trip with the idea of going to 'Ironbridge.' Some historians claim it as the Birthplace of the Industrial Revolution; others say not, as the IR was an event that spanned several years and which saw different el... Read more

I hadn't thought about blogging today, but I was nudged. I have a file on my 'inbox' marked Zalome. I generally keep the newsletters she sends; some few I copy and email to friends. This is, I think, the third or fourth one I have posted on... Read more
Another 'MeMe' Quiz, This One from SUNNYAZ
Saturday, June 26, 2010      7 comments

Copy and paste into your own blog - the idea on this one is 'one-word answers,' which can be difficult sometimes! Where is your cell phone? dining room Spouse? bathroom Your hair? messy Your mother? ! Your father... Read more
The Return of Zalome
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      15 comments

I don't often see cheeky essays from Zalome, but this one arrived today and it amuses me. Hope you enjoy it as well! * * * One day a farmer's donkey fell down into an unused dried-up well. The animal cried piteously for hours as th... Read more
Long-Awaited, Much-Anticipated PICNIC!
Sunday, June 20, 2010      22 comments

I just hope this isn't anti-climactic, lol... We have been to 'The Edge' many times, and have taken visitors there over the years. The views across Cheshire are spectacular, and The Edge has played a role in British history as well. ... Read more
Overdue Walking Blog
Friday, June 18, 2010      16 comments

Two weeks ago (or more) I had planned to blog another walk, with pictures, that we took at a local park / garden. Last week we went on a picnic to a National Trust site with walking trails and some spectacular views. I thought about doing the (p... Read more
A Poem from Zalome
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      22 comments

I was planning to blog today, but I had another (a walk from Friday, actually) subject in mind altogether. You know how sometimes you get 'nudged' to go in a totally different direction than the one you'd planned? Uh huh. So I've got another ite... Read more
Yes, it's that time again--!

Got this from SHAWWB (Brenda). I told her I don't THINK I've done this particular one before. Maybe I should come up with a numbering system or something... but that would be so anal, and take the fun right out of it, wouldn't it? lol... So if I... Read more
Walking Blog - Day 7
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      22 comments

It's not simply the seventh day I've blogged, or walked, for that matter: it's just the seventh day that I've had pictures to post from a walk I've taken - if that makes sense! This morning the sun was shining, and early on there wasn't a c... Read more
Non-Walking Blog - Day 6
Friday, May 14, 2010      6 comments

It's raining, really - as they say here - chucking it down, so there won't be any outdoor walks today. It's not that I particularly dislike walking in the rain, but I won't go out of my way TO walk in the rain. Since it's Friday, I also try to a... Read more
Walking Blog - Day 5
Thursday, May 13, 2010      6 comments

I'm a little late getting this posted today; it's evening, and since it's Thursday night the local 'bell ringers' are practicing in the parish church. They are ringing traditional changes, and I know there must be a beginner or two in the group ... Read more
Walking Blog - Day 4
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      8 comments

The rhododendrons are all budded and soon will be blooming, fast and furious. I was checking out one of my favorites today (the deep red one) and the buds are even starting to show color, so shouldn't be too long. There's a pair of mallards... Read more
Walking Blog - Day 3
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      8 comments

Still catching up on the pictures I took earlier this month. We have a pireus (sp? I look it up all the time and still can't remember!) in our yard. It seemed to have more color this year than it has in three or four years - but then, this ... Read more
