Ahha, you thought I was telling porkies when I said I have been on the bike. Well, look here you lot, this here is a nearly self portrait of my arm as Eve rides along on her Winter bike. She's on her other bike these days on account of something or other - the actuality of which evades me currently.

Anyway, you can see I have a good cyclists arm can't you? Hanging on the dear life as my old e-partially powered mountain of a certain vintage bike carries me along. Have loved it and have been getting fitter [and tireder] by the day. Only now, I adjusted the bike thing and it's now out of commission for a few days.

Surprisingly, there's a fair bit of sea swimming going on up here in what is usually chilly if not cold waters. Eve and I have done this although not recently. We have been more disposed towards bicycles on land.

it's nearly July. How did that happen?

I know, I know, but I stumbled upon this snap in the folds of my external hard disk. Obviously from my earlier days on the island.

It's just over there [pointing] along that road and down a bit. Would love to go there right now but we can't yet. Anyway, there might be another person there and we have three big clean white empty beaches round about the village even though they are not sepia coloured (in the main).

back on the same day [as yesterday's day]

It's all coming back to me now.
That nice bloke off the tv  was there at the show teaching the locals the southern skill of tickling the coows. Oh how we laughed. Oh how the coows wiggled and tiggled.

Then it didn't rain. I mention that because it always rained at this show - but not this year . 2011 it was. What a year. It's rained ever since. Probably.

Back in the day

Waiting for the sheeps rugby match to start. This was a sort of team Bisheepslon whereby each team of sheeps took part in a rugby game and Highland sheeps dancing.

The cheviots won I'm told.
