Scrumping …


Here we are on test .. I have never uploaded a video to my blog before .. but .. here we are on a north facing hillside overlooking Blair Athol Castle scrumping* for crab apples.

Less than half a mile away to the east is the refurbished barn conversion of the tumbledown old farm my brothers and I lived in during the post war years. I distinctly remember queueing at the local village shop for sweets as rationing ended .. great days indeed …

(scrumping* .. helping ourselves without the landowners express permission) it happened a lot during and in the few years after the 1939-45 war due to food shortages — makes our current pandemic feel like a walk in the park and much ado about nothing —

OK .. fingers crossed .. I’m going to click the ‘PUBLISH’ button and hope my test video comes on —
