    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Sea no evil

Today for a change, Richie and I took the canoe out on the Clyde. Just a short paddle over to Rosneath from Helensburgh and back. Stopped a while on the remote shore at Rosneath point. Saw lots of bird life and a seal at Green Island just off the point.

If you've ever wondered what Helensburgh looks like from the Clyde in a canoe........

In between the sea and the sky is Ardmore Point

Sailing by...

And talking of bird life……meet Bernard.

Bernard the turkey

I met Bernard when I picked Richie up today. It may be unusual to have a pet turkey but in fact Richie had two. The other one was called……….drum roll……….Matthew, but he came off second best in an encounter with a fox.

And finally in today’s photos, this is Richie’s cock:

  1. I’m not one for canoeing, the wet, the cold, the drowning, all put me off. However the sights you see are fab! I miss that sort of thing here.

  2. Neither of us drowned, nor were we wet or cold – It’s great oot there!
