Photo article: father & son, my best Christmas present to myself & 1 Joshua got earlier as we walk in Wales

The smaller Peppa Pig wellies contain the feet of four-year-old Joshua. The larger wellies were a late Christmas present to myself and meant that we were able to go on a decent New Year’s Day walk together up the River Dee on the Welsh side heading towards Chester. Walking with your son does not spread Covid in the way that sledging might in the world of mad Mark Drakeford, our dear leader here in Wales.


The Mrs could not join us as one entrance to the meadow was flooded and the other, a kissing gate, would not allow her, with the baby in a papoose, to squeeze through. So it was the men of the house that wandered in the cold. The river Dee was to our right and big floods to our left with the edges of the water turned to ice. A narrow strip of muddy land allowed us passage.


It was a New Year’s resolution to try and do a walk every day as, I must admit, it was a bit of a squeeze for me getting through the kissing gate and my 34-mile Woodlarks walk is now just six months away. I think the Mrs could walk with us if we cross the bridge and head towards Chester on the side of the English infidels. The only danger of this is that Drakeford’s Rozzers might just arrest us on the way back across the Bridge. Stranger things are happening here in Wales.

Rand Paul for President - Ron's son on impeachment, what the BBC doesn't tell you

His father, Ron Paul, is my hero and the Senator for Kentucky was in full flow yesterday as the impeachment process begun. It is a sham and quoting the words Trump used in full and not selectively on January 6, as the BBC opts to do, Rand showed that clearly. This process will not unite America it is just another demonstration of the #TrumpDerangementSyndrome still gripping the liberal elites and, of course, the BBC.  that is why Trump will not be impeached as the process needs a 2/3 majority which it will not get. It is thus pointless as well as a sham. Take eight minutes out of your day and enjoy:
