I’ve had Horatio McCulloch and his wonderful works on here before, but I just came across this page on the BBC site which has a bunch of his paintings, all familiar Highland stuff or scenes local to me like the view below which is also in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Museum (I can see my living room window just at the turn of the river). The genius thing is that it has links to a print ordering page which I didn’t know about as I’d bought this ages ago. Go on, you know you want one.
It’s not all good news. The (mostly) silver Ford estate which has carried me to work and mountains without fault or complaint for the past three years is dead. They ran out of room listing all the faults on the MOT fail sheet and had to continue the list on the tissue I was sobbing into.
So, new wheels please.
