Jimmy and Archie

I hope entering Whensday will catch on. I don't know who is hosting it but I see two blippers, theBroon and snapper submitting an entry today. This is my entry. It is of my uncle Jimmy (holding the horse) and my cousin Archie at the back. It was a torn photo given to me by Archie. It was in a torn state but I have patched it up and improved it best I could. This was taken in Colabol farm, Shiness, near Lairg where they lived a very hard life. My Dad would probably have been there at this time too. I never did meet Jimmy and he died sadly in a motorbike accident when he was 21. My father used to play the fiddle with him but when this happened he stopped playing. I suppose no crash helmets were worn at this time. I will try to put another shot of Jimmy in the extra.  Can't seem to find it right now but will continue to look as I have to find it anyway.

Today I propose to do more sorting of the old photos ..........go in to the garden................go to a spin class....................baby sit the wee ones for a short time....................and come home.
