Adrian

Adrian is safe and sound. He is the wily fellow who manages a blog called "Adrian's Images". One or two of us were getting worried about him because he hasn't blogged since August 15th and normally he posts something of interest every day or two..

However, it appears that the reason for his absence is mundane. Staying on a farm near Auchtermuchty in Fife, he had been reliant upon his hosts' broadband supplier in order to connect  to the worldwide web. This summer they changed providers and in the process Adrian has temporarily lost his connection. Thanks to Detective G. Edwards of Eagleton Notes Constabulary for unearthing this information. Fife police have now called off their manhunt, including the dive team who had been meticulously dredging The Firth of Tay.

A former skjpper aboard merchant ships, Adrian lives in a camper van with his two West Highland terriers - Molly and Alf. He is passionate about nature and photography. Many of his posts demonstrate these twin passions in which he has developed  a great deal of technical expertise. Though he is approaching the age of seventy, he maintains a refreshing inquisitiveness about the world around him. 

I am confident that Adrian will be blogging again  before too long. There are many more mushrooms, flies, beetles and butterflies left  to capture with his various cameras and many more muddy puddles for Molly and Alf to splash through. If you have never visited Adrian's blog before, please go here and have a good root round.

    4. Who needs words when you can talk to people with emojis? Unfortunately (or fortunately) I don't possess a mobile phone (cell phone).

    1. The triplet picture gives folk just a glimpse of his skill as a photographer.

  4. Adrian's is fortunate to have someone, namely, you, keeping an eye out for him...for his welfare. I'm sure he appreciates it.

    I approached 70 a couple of years ago...and still can't believe I was so forward to have done so!!

    1. I hope you approached seventy warily - with a big stick.

    2. No point! Time stops for no one and that includes me. I'm now approaching 72...which is drawing closer...or I'm drawing closer...in November. No stick is powerful enough! I'll face it and look it head on!! :)

  6. " Though he is approaching the age of 70…etc etc…..I'll have you know that I am soon to be 71, and still manage to function as I always have. You can go off people you know Mr. Pudding!! Glad that your friend Adrian has resurfaced. Or should that be friends ? I will have a look at his blog.

    1. All I was saying is that he is young at heart Frances. Some people seem to lose their joie de vivre as they grow older but Adrian remains excitable. I guess that in some ways you are the same.

    2. I just posted a comment here I thought, but can't see it now! I said that his insect pics are amazing, though that is a very overused word these days, especially on certain TV progs!

  7. That picture at the top is the caption for a good old Yorkshire saying, as I am sure you know! (and it is so true of the average Yorkshireman).

    1. He is a great advertisement for independence. Adrian plays by his own rules.

  10. Well, that's a relief!

  11. Well, Neil, you provided the information. I just made the phone calls. I have to say that I was very concerned.
