About This Blog

This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

Pictures, and lack thereof

I don't post many pictures on my blog, unlike many other bloggers.

I just can't be bothered with the hassle of getting the picture off my phone/camera via Blue-tooth/cable.  It's a bit of a bore really.

In my younger days I had technophilic tendencies and would buy all the latest gadgets for my PC.

Nowadays,  I'm content with my old pentium 4 PC and a long-in-the-tooth dell laptop and I have no need for further gadgetry. I have a laser printer and colour dell printer, a pen-pad and pen and a Hi-Fi all hooked up to my faithful old "Bjudah"* and I am, in my dotage, content.

Pictures are still important though and, as and when required, I still do up-, or down- (as the case may be) load a few.  I have kept a faithful record of all the dogs that we fostered for "TOP" and that is about it really.

Anyway, I have decided to rectify that by including a couple of snaps of my own artwork.

Apologies for the poor quality.

Dead rose (ink 1991)
Soldiers (Pastel 1991 from a  postcard)
Ruin (Ink 1992)

Tree (1991 wood block painting)
Cowboy (Pastel 
from a Thelwell cartoon) 

They all date from around 1991-93.

I don't do as much drawing and painting as I used to do.  Maybe one day I will have the time to sit myself down and reacquaint myself with my pencils and brushes.

Hope you like them.

* Bjudah = come Bjudah
