These are two views of the Kyle of Durness. I took them yesterday whilst on my fruitless Puffin safari. The first is taken from Balnakiel Bay and the second from Meall a’ Bhuic which is the headland the Puffin visit. What is the plural of Puffin? I should know after dragging my tar laden lung and a bit this far; uphills, downhills and soft sand. I’d got a right lather on and was puffing like billy-o.
This week I had a black mark on my copybook from a respected teacher of the English Language. SIR, SIR, MR YORKSHIRE PUDDING, PLEASE SIR. For those not familiar with his prose, photos and verse you can click on the link for a look. I find him a touch pedantic at times but don’t tell him I said so. I never arse licked teachers whilst at school so I find little reason to start now. The following video is dedicated to him. I used both Upper and lower case in the title. Don’t any of you dare call me a brown nose. I’ll be cross.
I like criticism. I take it to heart. To be honest, I just like the attention. I have had a couple of ‘Try and amend your ways.’ This week. I do listen and attempt to take your advice. GRAHAM, HE WHO BREEDS FISH. Graham mentioned that it was wrong to feed gulls. I agree but it is fun. Most things that are fun are bad. No wonder I have trouble sleeping. Whilst composing this post I noticed this cretin feeding Black Headed Gulls. I shouted….. “STOP IT! They will eat Grahams fish. They will gobble up children and very occasionally real people.”
I don’t think he understood because he fed them again.
SEE!…. Sorry Graham but I tried my hardest to stop him. I stopped short of physical restraint, his wife was enjoying the show, seemed a shame to spoil her fun. None of the children here have been attacked, more’s the pity….There is time yet.
Have a great weekend. Keep those comments coming, they inspire me to attempt perfection.
