Things I don't get

I don't get cream on scones either. Far too sickly.  I like just butter on mine, maybe a tiny little bit of jam. 

Not that I dislike cream....

Morning all/afties Pat  

Dull here but it's supposed to brighten up. 

Good to see you Steve. Well done with your 5k - it's much harder to do something when you have to self motivate. You have to kick your own butt when you don't feel like heading out  

Will it be chilly there at that time of year chicky? Have you got a nice fur hat 'a la Anna Karenina'

It was Young Fraaankenshteeeeen for me. Sheer joy. Goodnight lovely Mr Wilder.

Watching highlights from Hyde Park concert - fabulous Carole King. She's 74 now. I'm very nervous... too many of my musical heroes are at their three score years and ten - or more...

Daughter has just told me Gene Wilder's died.

We hate 2016

Lovely piece of history GD - especially the steps.  Sad when that ends - economics eh?

The Cairngorms are very granite-y. The western hills are quite different from the eastern ones. Different weather.  Dundee (north east of Scotland) is known as the Granite city. 

That lump was about a foot or a bit more in length. Erosion means that you often get quite big patches of quartz on some hills.

All sorts GD - but a lot of granite. Running your hands over it is a delight. So smooth. Beautiful. Yet you can wander a few hundred yards and there are great gouges and shards that would cut you open.  

Quartz on lots of the hills too. Huge chunks of it shining on a sunny day. Better than any diamonds 

Tops of the hills can be completely covered with lovely rock formations

There's often a real mix from one hill to another, like in Glen Nevis.

Cupcakes...don't get me started...

What the **** is that all about? 

Nothing can replace a fairy cake. I may be slightly biased of course....

She's lucky she's not sleeping in the shed, doc.

Cheeky besom...

Night Wonks 

Listening to Johnnie Walker's 'thing' with Dolly, Emmylou and Linda Ronstadt (who I adore) and it's lovely. So sad Linda can no longer sing because of Parkinson's. Her version of Anna McGarrigle's Heart like a Wheel makes me sob like a two year old...
