… The Pear-Shaped (person) gets muddy! So now that has got your attention … make a brew and settle down to read.
So I set off as usual to catch the 22 in Kirriemuir High Street, via the 20. The 20 was a few minutes late but arrived as the clock changed to the time the 22 leaves at … except the 22 was not there … not even a whiff of exhaust or the purr of a distant engine! He had left early again. The one thing I cannot stand is early running buses but what is more galling is for all the weeks I have been using that service it has never left early once until yesterday!
So for the second day I found myself on a 27A headed to Forfar … it comes over the flyover like the bus below (that is actually the 11:45 bus out of Kirriemuir photographed form a high hill). This morning it was late and the male students particularly obnoxious with their fart commentary. I was not staying on that bus to Arbroath and the only bus left to go to Dundee was also a College Bus so I got off the bus at East High Street and walked. No not to Dundee!
I started my week with a post called Wear Out and Be New … well did I succeed?

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

I feel that I am making the changes I want in myself and that is reflected outwards; I feel at peace with myself and other’s seem to be at peace with me too. Read More…
What an exciting day it has turned out to be … new discoveries and winsome ponderings. Where shall I begin?
Perhaps with a question about the photo above – do windfarms blight our landscapes? If it is one as above I rather like to see them – I certainly don’t find they spoil the landscape – however if it was at the concentration they are at in some other areas of Scotland then yes I think they become intrusive. For me though the bigger issues are around whether they are really efficient at generating power – if they are we do need to use alternatives to reliance on fossil fuels and I am not keen on nuclear power.
