July August at Strontian has to be Midgie Hell 😬
If I am stuck for inspiration as to what to "put on" my fallback is always the Traveling Willberries.
I did always fancy being Mr. Geschäftsführer: it does have a certain ring to it 🙄.
been = BBC
As I "type" listening to Bowie 2000 on the been.
is China Girl now China great great granny ??
I don't know about super skilled.
Journeyman- maybe, Artisan --No.
I have only been tying flies for 60years so a long way to go to !
I had a different kind of Eye Test today --- it being a manky day.
I decided to tie a few flees. But first had to make a few items.
Step one --strip a few individual fibres from a cock pheasant tail feather.
Step two --- tie Two Knots in each fibre to make "legs with joints". This requires patience, dexterity and decent close up eyesight --- not properties I have in abundance.
Then do it again and again and again --
Step three --- take six legs and use them to create each caricature of a Daddy Long Legs.
Step four --- well, you can guess that.
Not very Two wheels but they are pics
lack of use means you loose things so I had to manufacture a couple of new devices
we cannot work out why anybody would build a massive stone wall there.
Went troot fishin again today, successfuly, but the last wee troot caught had to have the last rites.😟.
Eye test planned for Thursday.
I did think the garden plants would have come on more during my long absence.😬😇
All arriving in plain brown paper parcels ?
Well, I went fushin (,first time for ages) and caught many, well several, well ok half a dozen, (nice) wee brownies (all returned) and had a lovely day.
I got to play with a stove and make tea , miles, and miles, and miles , away from home.
Nae tick, cleg or midgie bites😳.
Four wheels tho.☹️
I have decided to stop pruning the carrots, stop being angry at time passing ---- and go fishing !
Nearly only 5 miles away !
Nor my Teeth 😜
Predictably the Scottish outdoor community are no happy.
But --- how's this for a "politician"
2nd June (from a BBC article,).
SMR Chairman Damon Powell said: "We are also aware how deeply frustrating it is when everyone who is making such sacrifices see people openly flouting the guidance. We are pleased to see the police taking action against such individuals."
4th June ( from a BBC article).
Hillwalkers and climbers should not be concerned about being penalised if they call 999 for help, Scottish Mountain Rescue (SMR) has said.
SMR chairman Damon Powell said mountain rescue assistance would be provided "without cost and without judgement" if people were in difficulties."
First problem for me is who is going to define ill-equiped ? The problems with that are enormous.
The risk to life was presumably primarily to the Glasgow Two and secondarily to the MRT.
It would be interesting to know who contacted the MRT.
There will now be greater risk to life through reluctance to contact MRT as Charges might be made by the police if MRT get involved.
As regards risk of infection I suspect they were all more likely to get Tick Sickness than anything else !
The reporting says the charge is Culpable and Reckless Conduct and mentions the two people got into difficulties on the hill. There is no elaboration on the difficulties.
The reporting then goes into a frenzy about Stay at Home.
The concern must be that the charge is simply to demonstrate that 5mls might not be Law---- but there are lots of other charges we can bring , if we want to.!
