My mum's birthday today - meaning another month has gone...



Recording the first half of the podcast this morning....


Exiting the house...



I like the new vase in the porch...


Snails on the path - mon the snails!



Down a busy hill...


The beast was about its business trying to capture cats...



At lunchtime, the final day for HMV on Princes St...


End of an era but, really, thee worst closing down sale ever - virtually nothing was reduced - the only difference was the plethora of signs saying "closing down, everything must go"...

I think they should have said "everything must go to our new store down at Ocean Terminal - probably over 5 miles from the city centre"...

Good luck with that HMV...

Adios...


Up the hill under good skies...



...to find this behind the door...


A Japanese LP transfer featuring the very recording of Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" which my dad utilised back in the 1960's to get me interested in music...

Think it worked...

Out to the Howgate this evening to meet up with Mum, sister Sheila, brother in law Andrew, nephew Ali and his fiance Julie for a birthday meal for mum...

Other nephew Andy, wife Tori and their son, Wee Dougie, were on hand from that Yorkshire via Facetime,..





Once again, I could not resist the lure of Cullen Skink...


Barbecue pulled pork on a brioche for my main...

The camera was very close to the plate...


An 86 year old birthday girl enjoyed the night out...


We took mum home, where Ali & Julie's vase and flowers were set up nicely by the Exec Producer...


Home just before midnight for some surfing and listening before hitting the sack...

Highlight of the day : Out with the family...
