"Frosty the Snowman! by The Jackson Five

Well, I know its a bit early for Christmas stuff but the song fits with the theme.

First of all its 30th November so its St Andrew's Day in Scotland. CLICK here to read more about St Andrews Day.

Secondly, my good friend, Harry R and I took a walk in the Glen Tanar area in what was a very frosty, cold but sunny day. We walked about 15 miles is some beautiful scenery and we only met people near the end of our walk. Here is a slide show of our photos. PLEASE CLICK ON THE SPEAKER ICON TO HEAR THE MUSIC

Third place goes to last weeks weather when we were engulfed in about 30cm of snow here in Ellon. Here are a couple of photos to show what it was like. A few cars got stuck on the hill outside our house and I helped to unstick tone and send it on its way.

Lastly, We were in Glasgow on a short break to see our son Bruce and Aunt Jackie along with some shopping. The Glasgow Christmas Lights were switched on during our time there so here is a photo of them.
