Hello all and Thank you to DIANE So many lovely photos - thank you to CLARE, LINDY and DIBNLIB. Quiet here but still trying to help family as best as I can ! Middle daughter is trying everything she can to deal with her awful neighbour. Youngest has had nothing but disasters since her OH went to Australia. Son is still struggling with getting wounds on his leg healed - I am very worried about this, he has Type,2 diabetes and circulation seems poor. Wish that I could write something cheerful !!!!
Good morning, all!
It's going to be an uncharacteristically warm October day today, almost up to 80 degrees F, on this Indigenous People's/Columbus holiday. COVID numbers have begun to decline, so that is cautiously happy news.
I have a big soul line dance party event this coming Saturday in Buffalo, NY. I have a list of over 100 line dances I have been practicing so as to maximize my time on the floor with maybe 50 other people. The theme is cowboy/cowgirl, so I've got a plaid shirt with a western sheriff's star pinned to it, topped off with a headband that is jersey black and white, and features cow horns and ears. WOOHOO! Good fun and good exercise!

Wish I could find something to say to cheer you up, Heather - you've clearly got a lot going on. I'm pleased you enjoyed my Mull photos - you'll be pleased to know that we're officially going back, with a self catering apartment booked in June! It's attached to the lovely B&B we stayed at last month - I'm looking forward to going back there.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Heather: When is SiL due home from OZ? Assume son is seeing wound care folks....diabetes really complicates things. So has daughter 'reported' neighbor's dog to anyone who can/will do anything about it? No fun at all to be at odds with a neighbor.....
CC: I imagne Columbus Day will gradually fade in favor of Indigenous People's Day - it should; after all, they were here long before he stumbled across the North American continent! You are having too much fun at these dances. :-)
dibnlib: Love these little tidbits on how places got their names. Swapping pants for kilts - oh my - sounds very seditious.
Clare: Smart to make your reservations for next year.
In reply to Annette in SoCal:

I wasn't actually looking to book so soon but when I looked at the B&B's website half of June was already booked up! The term time dates are clearly going quickly for the self catering apartment.
Forecast today = sunny, max 23. Morning actually = overcast. Nevertheless I took my camera for a walk along South Esplanade Glenelg (walk-bike track only) to capture some of the former “stately” homes. Alas, multi-storey beachside apartments have infilled the former stately grounds. Iron lacework on some verandahs have seen better days, but, hey, the salt winds would be a challenge to maintenance. Detour via Bakery on way home. . .
Just a thought
