Oh, and we didn't quite have the biggest flag.
The transgender and non-binary flags we being carried horizontally by two large groups ๐Ÿ˜€

Took the flags out for a walk down Union Street Aberdeen for the winter parade as part of Grampian Pride.
Bit lower key than it may have otherwise been, but cool weather and covid have put a dampener on many things ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
Still plenty of people and noise though ๐Ÿ˜€

Our girls were supposed to be coming along, but we were unable to get them up as they had been up until the wee hours last night. ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด

(Must acquire a pansexual flag before the next outing.)

Shortened the pole.

The whip end was bending too much with the drag of three flags in the wind.
So taken out some of the narrow sections.

Still plenty tall enough to get over peoples heads when we hold the bottom (unlike here) ๐Ÿ‘

Quick flag check for tomorrow.

Driving down Union Street yesterday, and there are advertising signs strung between the buildings quite high up.
But equally, our flag pole from camping is also quite tall.

We *think* from this we will not foul them, but may have to do a bit of a dip if needed ๐Ÿ˜† (It's an Aldi cheap fishing pole, that collapses nicely)

And so it begins.

Coming home over the hill you could see the temperature guage falling as we dropped into the howe last night.
It kept going.

Bright, so warmed fast as the sun rose. ๐Ÿ˜€

The black rook calling out while stood on the glittering frost covered lawn opposite, while we made coffee earlier, looked beautifully contrasted ๐Ÿ’š

New growth.

This dead tree has had two different fungi on it in the last 3 years.

This year a third appeared half way up it. Was glistening beautifully in the sunlight as we passed by. ๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿ„

Food, birthday cake. 

For a teenager into crystals, what cake do you make?
A geode of course ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Love this design ๐Ÿ‘

A Bike Trailer For Any Expedition

One of the greatest challenges for a hardware hacker relying only on a bicycle for transport lies in the regular need to carry more than can be slung from the handlebars or on the luggage rack of yโ€ฆ


Wandered up to the ruins of Dunnideer castle and hill fort, and wondered...

Was the castle needed to hide from the scary and dangerous cattle? ๐Ÿฎ


Oooh. This is nicely made.

Worth the extra few pounds (not a lot ยฃ35 all in), and from someone that mostly sells Jujitsu grappling dummies, well they know how to take some usage ๐Ÿคฃ

Our wife will be hating us, but not the equipment ๐Ÿ˜†

She needs some specific strength training now the physio & scans show what we need to target to help repair her back/core.

She has a weak wrist from a prior injury, so loading her squats with a soft weight across her shoulders be easier when targeting her legs.

You cannot go and wake the youngest child for school.
What will I lean against while you go?

One of these.

The turn and lift is pretty impressive.

On a street, he got in and lifted it up so that we could get a flatbed reverse under the car while he dangled it on the forks ๐Ÿ˜€
