Brrrr, Munguin. It’s a bit chilly out. Any room in the tower for a nice looking fox, totally unrelated to Liam?

That’s all for this week… See you next Sunday.

Thanks to Marcia and John… And also to the RS for catching a certain cat and a washing machine. (I’ll leave John to explain (if he survives, that is.)

  1. It’s lovely to see orang babies with their mum, as it should be. There were so many mum and baby pictures that when I got to the Ireland one I read it is MOTHER! The fox was gorgeous, most of the ones I see are urban and rather mangy. And what an adorable bunny family and Heilan Coo.

    Life much reaffirmed and a little mental life raft to see us through to Thursday. As bad as Thursday might be, I have a horrible fear that Friday 13th might just be the most scary one ever…

    1. I’m glad life is reaffirmed.

      I have to admit that Friday 13th is something I’m not looking forward to.

      I just hope it will be good for us in Scotland.

      But the overall UK outcome is going to be bad one way or the other. Corbyn or Johnson…

      Oh heavens.

    2. I don’t really say this sort of thing, but.

      When you get to the end of a difficult week, you see this, and you remember how lucky you are to be alive.

      Yup, that sums it up.

      Thanks, trispw.

        1. trispw,

          Praise, it seems to me, is undeserved admiration. I think I speak for more than myself in saying that any admiration I have for you is deserved.

          Could we let this vaguely uncomfortable conversation go?

          Whilst not retracting a word I have said?

          As we used to say:

  2. Lovely soppy set again Tris, many thanks. Have spent the morning so far researching Glen Prosen (where I now seriously intend to go – don’t know Angus at all), reporting a website typo to Visit Angus, and looking for info and photos of Servals which I never heard of before. Aren’t they amazing? Are the two big cats snow leopards by the way? Loved the massed penguins waiting to honour Munguin!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it, Sue. I’m sure Marcia will be chuffed that her photos inspired an intended visit. I hadn’t heard of servals either.

      I reckon you are right about the Snow Leopards.

      The mass of penguins was impressive… although Munguin usually draws crowds wherever he goes. 🙂

  3. Super stuff, as ever, Tris. I love Marcia’s pictures of Glen Prosen – one of the many delightful parts of this beautiful land. As Douglas so aptly put it, how lucky we are to be alive and I’d add, how even luckier to be so in this wonderful place that many can only dream of living in.

    1. True, Andi… I read daily about the horrific conditions that some people live in, whether becasue of war, or climate vagaries…

      We just did a great walk in Glen Esk along the river there to the Stones of Solitude. And the rain stopped just as we got there, and a couple of hours later, just as we were getting to the car, on it came again.

      Quelle joie.


  4. That’s Mount Saint Elias seen at Icy Bay, Alaska. At 18008 ft, it’s the second highest mountain in both the USA and Canada (since it sits on the border between Alaska and the Canadian Yukon.)

    What a nice turnout to greet Munguin!

    I like the COO too.

    1. PS: Apologies for belated comment from previous. The Tobacco sign reference to “Zion” made me think of a possible Utah location. The Latter Day Saints (Mormons) were big on Zion references. But in fact the sign was in Zion, Illinois, founded by a Scottish evangelist and faith healer, John Alexander Dowie, who was born in Edinburgh. He founded the Christian Catholic Apostolic Church.

      Wilbur Glenn Voliva succeeded Dowie in the church leadership. Voliva expounded the flat earth doctrine, and preached against round earth astronomy, and the evils of evolution.

      About the sun:

      “The idea of a sun millions of miles in diameter and 91,000,000 miles away is silly. The sun is only 32 miles across and not more than 3,000 miles from the earth. It stands to reason it must be so. God made the sun to light the earth, and therefore must have placed it close to the task it was designed to do. What would you think of a man who built a house in Zion and put the lamp to light it in Kenosha, Wisconsin?”
