Mags, glad you enjoyed your wee trip back to Glasgow. Foxes are pretty common in and around the city, you can see the almost anywhere. A neighbour of mine had a relative from the country staying with him and he saw our local fox, he said it was the first he had ever seen in 40 years.
stratson
My friend in Pollokshields has a regular fox coming into his garden.

Personally have never seen any though neighbours have remarked of seeing them occasionally in our communal back garden area.

Would appear they are becoming more tame(or gallus) laugh.gif

Mags, what wildlife comes into your garden, it appears quite large!
ashfield
This is our local fox, it had a partner and two young cubs at the time. They were sunbathing in my neighbours garden and got a bit huffed when I disturbed them unsure.gif

jakka13
It seems I never get five minutes to myself these days .This is a very busy time for me .I'm trying to get all the outside stuff done but the weather isn't helping me .It's comin' doon in buckets right now so all my outdoor cushions will be soaked again .Once I get the outside done I'll make a start on the inside .We close up here on Oct 6th .On top of everything else I've been stitching one of my pictures for the baby so that has been a priority .
Baleted thanks for all the lovely birthday messages ,I'm sorry it's taken me so long to send my thanks .
We had a lovely day on Sunday we got to visit with my new Great Grandson Gavin .He was three weeks old on Sunday .He's magic.
Talk to you all soon .Promise .My PC is really acting up so I think once we get home and settled we'll have to go shopping for a new one . biggrin.gif

Hi folks, I haven't been around for awhile but it seems like everyone visiting Betty's room is gadding about all over. Sounds like you had a great trip Mags and Betty, I gather, is still away on hers while Angela's jist rarin tae go. Jakka, I've been trying to get ahold of you through my mail page but it is accepting stuff I don't want mixed in with my regular mail (they have an agreement with facebook) and I just can't get to you. Congrats grandma, on the arrival of young Gavin and I'm sorry I missed your birthday. So now I see you plan to enjoy the cottage til mid-October, sounds great, wish I were there.

Those are great pictures of the cute little kids ready for communion and I don't think I've met anyone yet who posted them, so howdy folks, pleased to meet you.
stratson
Good to see you Boots, trust you are keeping well.

Yes, everyone is flittin' to and fro. laugh.gif

Melody you hit the nail on the head, i really dont like new year any more as i have the same emotions as you mentioned and it makes me so sad, why it is more poignant at new year i dont know , but i always shed a wee tear for those now gone and memories , and as you said as soon as the bells have rung in the new year i'm fine again till next new year .
