marmy, the gymnast

I am the lucky one

real love means doing whatever it takes

no more grey skies now

never felt a love like this

just that first tender kiss

was all that it took

for me to give everything

to make her mine

for all of time

Marmaduke likes pubs that have childrens’ play areas, with swings

Exploring County Durham

it is strange how the places of our past call to us

Weardale, not so many miles from the garret, and yet a world away in memories.  I haven’t been up there in decades, and today I’m taking a short road trip to an area of hills, heather, dry stone walls, idyllic streams, and sheep.

These pictures aren’t mine, but I should have some good photographs to show you pretty soon.

The main thing is, a road trip into peace and quiet is good for the soul.

Except I’ll bet that when I get up there it will be raining
