I am sure that this will come as a surprise, or maybe even an anathema, to my wargaming followers.
However, I wish to make pact with my followers.
In recent months, due to health issues, the variety and length of my dog-walking have been reduced. My fitness and the dog’s fitness have both been affected. It has got to the point that Sparky, after five minutes play in the local woods, picks up his ball and heads for home.
And thus, now that I feel able to resume driving safely, and on 1st July, I make my half year resolution.
“I will, each morning, by a random die roll (to keep my wargaming followers happy) select from the local Ordnance Survey map a location. I will then drive to the nearest identifiable footpath. From there I will walk the dog for at least 30 minutes before returning to the car.
I will take a photograph at some point on the walk and post it on this blog.”
For your part, if no daily photograph is posted, I wish you to reply either to this post or by e-mail to email@example.com asking why there is no daily photograph.
I hope that this non-relevant information will not cause you to stop following my blog. Simply delete the irrelevant incoming mails if they are a problem. They will be titled “Walks with my dog” and on the blog will be allocated to that category and tag.
