Waterbutts, the Badachro inn does still have the map and has hardly changed in the 25 years I have been going.

fg. I love Glencoe too and when I was a bit more agile spent a great day on the Aonach Eagagh, now there a ridge. It is made all the better by finishing just outside the Clagaigh Inn.

BizLiz, I have probably said before that my late wife said she would see the garden through my eyes and would be at my elbow in the garden. I try to have flowers from her garden on her grave all year round ( well mostly, when the deer leave off eating the roses). I haven't frozen it in time, as it always was , which she would understand as we were always of one mind when it came to making changes.

You could get back into practice with photos of dilbert hanging out of his window dilbert up his ladder and last but not least dilbert looking at auntie's bloomers.

All the best to all of you.

Always fancied a go at the AE ridge pd, but my partner at the time was too chicken! The 'Bookil' is another great walk - had a great day doing the ridge. My big regret was not doing Ben Lui - the Queen of the mountains. Maybe one day. 

I'm sensing that the position of various hostelries was an important factor for you too....

My current toyboy had a heart attack at 40.  non smoker , fit, clean out of the blue. After a recuperation period, we reassessed our life. No point saving up for being old and grey, do it now. We booked a round the world trip, went and did it.

He wanted to climb the sydney harbour bridge.   I was too scared to let him go on his own, so I did it too. a lot of Ibuprofen next day, but I'm  glad we did it. 10 years on, he got passed fit to go back to diving, we have dived all over the world. We may be old and grey, we may be broke, we will still have our memories.

WW, I remember you talking about your wife before. It moved me.

My husband died 15 years ago, but I am lucky in that I have met another lovely man in the last 5 years. Never meant to, but it happened. They are very different.

Try this for a memory. I'm behind the video. The hairy one with the  camera and red strobe is my OH.

BL - isn't it amazing when that happens 

 

FB, I'm never likely to dive - so thank you so much for sharing those glimpses into a beautiful world

Rose big hugs from me as well. I've been married and divorced three times. The garden is one of the things that keeps me looking forward. I read once- Those who plant a garden believe in tomorrow.

13/10/2013 at 20:44

Hey Woody.  That was lovely post.  So it's the two of you, still, gardening together in a way.  Must be comforting.

Fantastic woody

Woody - ((hug))  that's so special.

When I was married I just wouldn't have understood what you're feeling.

Now I'm with my own someone special I know how close two people can be and how strong that bond is.

Bless you

If I didn't have a garden I'd have pots and baskets and window boxes but other major time occupiers (and heart and brain and hands and feet) are OH and daughter, friends, dancing and dance club, sewing and doing up the house which is an ex farmhouse in need of lots of TLC, imagination and funds not to mention a sense of humour and patience.

13/10/2013 at 22:12

Thanks for all the hugs xxx

More cycling, reading and possibly pick up sewing again.
