  The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,

I promised something a bit lighter today, but I found that I couldn’t upload the pics that David or Dani sent.

So, I’m just using some of my own and one of Gerry’s…

There’s a walk alongthe disused Newtyle railway line which I do quite often. A couple have made a great job of their border wall

I mentioned a week or so ago that Gerry  (Munguin’s man with the camera) had been chosen as an SNP candidate for the council elections in Glenboig Gartcosh and Moodiesburn ward.

N Gerry

Here he is with some woman he knows. (Munguin is NOT happy about this.)

Anyway, he now has Facebook and Twitter pages up and a “follow” from his friends at Munguin’s Republic would be much appreciated.

When he’s not campaigning for the SNP, he’s taking photographs of his back garden!

As was I this afternoon.
