Wet…and getting Wetter


LuiBeg, Glen Lui, Marr Forest by Braemar, Scotland

Boy has it rained, two days of heavy rain.  The last time I was as wet as yesterday is ironically in mid – summer when hiking up to Derry Lodge in Glen Lui on the southern slopes of the Cairngorms. At this time in November they no doubt have either enjoyed heavy frost of snow….so I guess we will make do with rain.

Moody Monday……



The days of House Parties of the 20’s are long gone…..no longer are there any guest to lounge in the chintz chairs, no pianist to tinkle those ivory keys….and no one to read the post.

Just a Nostalgic memory remains.
