The autumn crocuses will still bloom...


Friends, I have noticed that Gail has been fretting about the big vote in Scotland today, and is worried what will happen next.

Well I too was mulling over this matter when in Torridon last weekend, and it dawned on me that the important things will not change.

I shall still sit in front of the cottage, watching the world (or at least the sheep) go by, with dear Hamish's memorial stone to my side, and the Autumn crocuses will still bloom.

I shall still enjoy a morning run along my favourite footpath.

And bumptious new neighbours will still need to be put in their place.

The lochside scene will still be picturesque.

And back at the cottage, food and water bowls will still be replenished and Gail will be planning another nice outing for the both of us.

Sometimes, it takes a dog to keep things in perspective.

  2. truer words have never been said Bertie...it is the everyday little things in our world that make it special and the big picture will always be there for us to look at later - even if it i constantly changing

  3. Well said Bertie. Anglophiles here in the US are pulling for the "common sense" vote. Which makes no sense at all, as we haven't seen any here in a "coon's age."

  9. Wow Bertie that was close....I'm glad you are still on one piece. The Setter was hungry huh? I'm very curious what will happen today in your country. I just watched the News, sadly we have to wait till tonight. I'm sure you are right, your world will be a beautiful terrier-world, that's for sure .

  10. Wow, Bertie, that setter wanted you for his brunch! Yikes!

    We've heard a lot of sturm und drang about the dire consequences of a YES vote... but as you say, the important things in your world won't change.

    And if it is a YES vote, well-- a lot of people said the same things about the US when we sought our independence over 200 years ago... it worked out pretty good over here. (In fact, the majority of the population wasn't in favor of revolution-- from hearing our politicos chime in on the subject of Scottish independence, I guess they would have been Tories back in the day...) So who knows, sometimes change can work out for the better....

    Autumn crocus is one of the true beauties. I trust you'll find the neighbours are just unfamiliar friends. That view would heal all ills. ...and yes, your world is stable. You are a wise lad. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  20. We are thinking of you and your vote today. As Canadians we understand the stress of these types of votes. Our now home province Quebec is always threatening to leave Canada.
