Saturday 5 May

As I type this, a fairly bright afternoon has deteriorated with sleet, hail and rain showers rattling through. It remains cold, although not as penetrating as yesterday. Went out for an amble through town before the showers commenced, but there was not much doing - although I did not go into the town's centre.

I am pleased that mainland football team Ross County have completed their season with 24 matches unbeaten. They finished their last game of the season with a 5-3 victory over Dumfries side Queen of the South - who will be relegated from the First to the Second Division next season. Ross County have already been promoted to the Scottish Premier League.


  1. Looks lovely - in bright sunshine and dry! Sad to learn about Queen of the South - I used to have a friend who played for them when we were all much younger!

  2. Once again a late comment Guido, but better late than never so they say.Yes I went out too Guido and it was bitter out of the sun.Having said that,I enjoyed the change aand th elace I visited.Great pictures oncs again.Congratulations to the futty teams.My youngest Son wasn't in the best of moods yesterday I can bet,he is a Liverpool fan,so I am leaving him well alone,for a while,no phone calls for at least a week from Mum haaaa-haaaaaaa.Take Care God Bless Kath xx
