The editor-in-chief is back.

Jenny had a long day yesterday, starting at 04:00 UK time and ending at 23:00 France time. Planes, trains, and automobiles; a day of almost constant movement. As we were driving home through the twilight, it was a good time to surprise the wildlife. 224 km round trip...

Cat Day Afternoon

Sometimes it's not fair that D is doing Spring-cleaning and we have to sleep outside. Soooooo peaceful without the hoover, talking book, or - singing!!🐾❤️🐱

Music-lovers

So much for "music calms the savage beast". Our three wild things have difficulty in accepting that, after years of not singing, I've started singing. They might prefer if I actually sang something other than vocal exercises, but that's where I am just now. Little...

breeze today

A bit of a breeze today so the wind-chimes are singing.These were bought in New Zealand almost 30 years ago. Yes, as well as flitting with the kitchen sink, I had a habit of not knowing what was a sensible item or weight to carry in travel luggage. I also still have...

Ascension Restaurant

A tale of two kitties.

A tale of two kitties. So much more than a "pet"Tigger was the first of the Slater cat dynasty. It took hindsight from years distant to understand his powers. Love and Patience were top of the list. When I was at secondary school I would return home for lunch, and...

Salad daze

I remember during the 70s in north-east Scotland, that a salad was identifiable by its unique components. This was possibly UK-wide for predictable greenhouse stuff such as "half-a-tomato-cut-into-segments".What made the north-east salad a true "North-east Salad" was...
