Finally managed to get my idiot computer sorted out, to a degree at least. I can now gain access to the forum again. Well what to say?? Autumn is just around the corner now, blackberries are in abundance as was evidenced by my juice stained hands on yesterdays walk and Skyes' equally stained coat. ( How that dog manages to get berry juice over himself in such quantity is a mystery to me,)The leaves are beginning to turn and I guess the swallows are gearing themselves up for their long migratory flight to warmer climes. Flytes' had a couple of days out picking up on ' The Posh Shoot', much to the little 'uns disgust,he hates missing out and being left behind, but he's not the sort of fellow to sit patiently behind the guns, (he's so much a 'beating' dog), not given to patience I'm afraid), and we've had pheasant for dinner. Not much changes in my world, I'm so ruled by the seasons and the changes they bring, and you know what, I wouldn't have it any other way. So, the purpose of this post is really to explain my absence, and to say that it's nice to be back in touch.
