Rant Of The Day

I hate to sound like a grumpy old man but………

I had to take Emma to Gartnavel  Hospital in Glasgow.

One of the nicer things that I have found about about getting older is  an increasing ability to be punctual.

We arrived 15 minutes early for the appointment and I dropped off Emma and Elaine at the front door. 45 minutes later I finally find a parking space. Don’t bother following, or even looking for the signs for the overflow car park, there aren’t any.

I arrive just in time to meet the doctor as they are leaving.

My advice: Pay the £2.00 and park in the car park of the adjoining Pond Hotel, it was empty and would have cost me less than the fuel I used driving in circles in first gear for three quarters of an hour.

I’m off to look out the tripod to take some night time  photos.

Recent Photos

I have just got around to going through the photos from our recent holiday in Florida.

The highlight (for me at least) was seeing the Shuttle launch.
