Wow…what’s that big yellow thing in the sky? Is it the sun? Nah. Be still my beating heart. It’s a big yellow football flying across our very own rainforest jungle. Yes, why go to the Amazon, when you can have the Amazon right on your doorstep courtesy of the average Scottish summer.


Look, I know some like it cold. I am not one of that some.

All right so today, I am doing two things…oh, be still your beating hearts if you thought this was finally the pirate post…  Next time, to tie in with Fury going on virtual tour. Actually I am doing three– I am listening  to what appeared to be a clap of thunder.  OOPS, and that was another. Could it be the sound of Dundee multis being blown to bits? No, that was yesterday. conv


Church wedged between them left standing by the way. conv4 No I am firstly giving a shout out for Beachwalk Press. Why am I doing that when I am an Etopia Press author?  Do I want my guts displayed for garters? No way, but I am doing it because you start out on this writing game, you start out blogging  and that can be hard, so you don’t forget those who friended you and one of the first was Beachwalk’s Aimee Duffy. (Here spelt correctly.) Also Etopia Press are fab.

But you know me I don’t do just straight promo, so I’m instigating Sunshine Sun Blog Award. Details and tres fortunate nominees–oih, where are you all going, get back here?- to follow this.

Right that’s that…painless. The prizes up for grabs are something, so I advise a pop over.   So the Summer Sun Award for bloggers who brighten the day in some way, either by their blog content or by what they do for others.


Well, firstly you display the logo and link back to the blog of the person who nominated you. Then you answer the following summery questions before nominating a lucky eight ….one for each sunray on the picture there. Then you must tell the lucky eight and name and display their blog link.

Of course the questions are all summer based. Don’t expect me to answer them…I wasn’t nominated!!

Favorite song with summer in the title or the words (give the line) – Mine is Dishwalla‘s Opaline. Summer dies here and so could I somewhere  underneath, where the ground is made of stars.
