Grumpy Old Man

Time to reflect

Another dry day - wow! Wish I could get on with some work in the garden, but my wretched back has chosen a bad time to mess me about. 

I see that it's now been suggested that our 'once a day' exercise should be for 1 hour! Sorry, but I think that's rubbish - if you have no contact with anyone why is one hour any better than 10 hours? Maybe someone can enlighten me.

I walked down to the sea-front again this afternoon and had a wander round the harbour beach as there was nobody there. Well apart from a few herring gulls, three mallards, several pigeons and two oyster catchers, that is, and they didn't let me get anywhere near two metres! The only fellow earthling that I approached was rather past worrying about, so I've put him on as an extra!

I liked the reflections in the windows of the closed and empty Piazza restaurant and thought it made a change from even more boats!

This weekend was to be our 3rd 'Oban Spring Clean', but eventually we decided that we would have to cancel and do it again another time. No reason not to have a Spring Clean in the Summer, I suppose! I did pick up one piece of paper near the house and put it in our bin, just as a gesture!

Quote of the day:

Charles Dickens, 'A Christmas Carol' - “Reflect upon your present blessings -- of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.”
