Dogs, Heaven and the RFDS Jet

… then I’ll hike it through Glen Falloch where the mountain breezes blow And I’ll draw up in the evening  in the Valley of Glen Coe. Of course, in my idea of heaven the road wouldn’t be there and all the dogs I have had throughout my life would be with me.  There  would be […]

Thank Goodness Its Friday

Once Dougal went home, the times walking were a little more comfortable and less frustrating. Dougal is a barker  and tends to go gaga if he hears another bark or, indeed, any noise.

I am not averse to criticism, even negative […]
