HAIRCUT. (15/09/14)

Yesterday I headed down from the highlands to the central belt of Scotland . I didn’t need anything in Perth so decided to turn right in Crieff and cut the corner. Crieff or grief. There is something called the Ryder Cup happening. I kept passing signs saying contractors vehicles but none saying road closed. I don’t play golf so my knowledge is limited to watching folk wandering about on bumpy lawns in pyjama trousers and gay shirts trying to get their balls in a hole that is a long way from where they started. Like watching paint dry; I’m tolerant. Whatever turns you on. I ought to have paid the game more attention when I was younger. I read in the paper a bloke got six million pounds for being first to get his ball in the hole. No matter how ridiculous they look golfers are not stupid.

I was flagged down by a very uncouth security man. He wanted to know if I could read. I said I could but had trouble with long words like pteriodactles. but I knew the ‘P’ was silent as in “ISS Off”. He told me the road was closed. I had to point out it wasn’t so he took my number and on I went. I was waving the victory sign and singing Rule Britannia as loud as I could. I hate security men. _MG_3583_4_5_tonemapped  My last view of the Highlands. Clachaig Gully.

Today it was dog haircut day.

_MG_3610   Alf all hairy.

_MG_3611 Moll in need of a trim.

_MG_3615     Molly sparkling bright.

_MG_3617       Alfie looking really smart.

This place is my sisters and is full of animals, horses, dogs, geese and hens.

_MG_3622       This is Zoe. She is the boss but is getting old and finding bossing a strain.

_MG_3621     This is Rosa. She is Zoe’s daughter and tolerates my two but gracelessly. There is an Alsatian but I couldn’t find her…..Pity she is a beautiful dog. I’ll get a snap later in the week.

That’s all for today, Have fun.

  4. Oh security? You could really get me going. Remember my court house ordeal. I felt like asking if they wanted my pants off as they took my belt. I kept my mouth shut. These guys don't make leaps of logic or do well with basic logic.

    1. Red, it's not a job I'd fancy. Standing in the rain guarding a field.

    1. Jean, if you could see them now. They are just back from a walk and are filthy.

  8. I thought from the title that the post was going to be about you getting a haircut yourself. But even if you did, you wouldn't look half as cute as Molly and Alf.

    That makes four.

    The gully is more awesome than cute.

    1. Bob, I am so long overdue a haircut that I'll just forget it for the time being.

      I have climbed that gully three or four times in winter when it freezes. It's near the pub and campsite. Those days are sadly long gone.

  12. If I were travelling up the A9 at the moment I would be seriously issed off with the road and lane closures. I missed it last week. Crieff is a sad place these days compared with its former glory. The Crieff Hydro used to be great for conferences etc except that it didn't have a bar! So you ordered lots of wine with your meal and snook it up to your (usually huge) room. Seriously. I assume it does now.

    1. Next week it will be worse. It's park and ride from the T in the park field at Milnathort. What roads aren't closed are going to be one way.
      I never saw Crieff in it's hay days. It's always struck me as a bit of a dump.
      Pity but no doubt a big casino and dancing girls would spark it up.
