Menojiggling; not quite jogging

You will recall two Sunday's past that there was mention of my travelling yet again over to Edinburgh to cheer on Mac1 in her running endeavours.

To be honest, another factor in the visit was to be with her on the 10th  in order to attend to The Maestro's resting spot as this was the first 'birthday' after 'deathday' and even the father was away this week. We had a fine half hour tending to the site, a natural place with a silver birch tree to mark the head and some heather and other native flora planted. It is a peaceful and contented place. The Maestro's music continues in the rustle of the leaves, the calling of the many birds, the tinkling of the items attached to the tree trunk...

On Saturday morning (12th) Mac1 picked me up to go with her to the regular Parkrun in Figgate Park. The morning dawned bright and beautiful.

............................... but here's the thing; am going to drag this out a bit.

Have got Jury Service callup today - may or may not be selected... you'll know by whether the posts are stretched and scheduled, or if things liven up again round here. Bear with me  on this one peeps. Let this picture once again be a tease... okay... well maybe one more...just as a promise of some more to come...😍


  1. Yam we know how much it meant to Mac1 to have you there on Maestro's first heavenly birthday. What beautiful gold leaves...
    Good luck with jury duty...or perhaps w/o it.
    Hugs Cecilia

  2. PS meant to say what cute little pup tushies!!

  3. Cute doggies but it looks cold there.

  4. The day is beautiful, and so is the photo.

  5. That tree is amazing. Hope if you are selected for a jury it isn't too disturbing a case.

  6. The tree looks like the pot of gold we can find at the end of a rainbow :o) good luck with the jury service...

  7. Hello, love the pretty tree and colorful leaves. LOL, at the cute furbabies butts. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead!

  8. I'm so pleased that you managed to visit the Maestro's resting place, and that it is such a peaceful and tranquil spot.
    Bertie and I have fingers and paws crossed that the jury service proceeds smoothly.
    Cheers, Gail.

  9. Good Day, YAM
    Well, jury duty brought your post to the ends quickly. janice xx

  10. Love the dog's bottoms, very funny. Glad you were able to be there for your sister. It must be hard on her.

    Jury duty eh? Well, you will have to tell all about it, or at least tell us here in Norway what it is about, since there is no jury duty in either Norway or the Netherlands!
