Just a few alterations, and he'll be ready for the Christmas dance.

P.S.  Full permission granted by the lad for my use of these photos, of course.
P.P.S.  It's a church rummage sale find that magically turns out to be one of our auld ancestral tartans -- how cool is that?

A Bit of a Tizzy

The lads and I are leaving in three days' time for our first trip back to America.

Nearly every day I make a scrawly mess of my to-do list and have to (choose to) chuck it into the recycling and start afresh.

It seems a good time to meditate on some pictures of my autumnal garden and village.

Especially now that winter has arrived (right now, at lunchtime, it is 50F -- a damp 50F).

See you soon!
