In randomly selecting our Flashback Photos, it’s so nice to see the reappearance of Kelpie in this photo. Mama seems to think this was taken around 2001 or 2002. Sweet little Kelpie (meaning of the name is Water Horse) stranded on a rock. She probably wished she had legs the length of a horse! Don’t panic though, she was actually standing on the beach, so no need to call out the lifeboats! Too late now anyway!
Awwww, what a lovely photo to see – Scotties on this side of Hadrians Wall. Sad though to note this photo was taken sometime after Kelpie passed away in 2009 as there’s only the Fab Four left. Still as we said in an earlier post, these flashbacks can be bittersweet.
The Famous Five: Izzy, Gus, Kelpie, Bobby and Finlay. Looks like they are taking a well deserved slurp in a village duck pond. You can see Bobby’s a bit more alert as to the presence of the ducks at the far side of the pond – not a chance of catching them, but I bet he would’ve given it a good try!.
Bobby and Finlay, probably not more than 18 months old in this photo – must be dated around 2004. Here they are munching on ‘dentastix’ which are now a definite ‘no no’ in this household in 2017 – Supposed to keep teeth your teeth clean but Mama’s not so sure these days, but back then it looks like Bobby and Finlay really enjoyed them!
Well, the three amigos, the three wise scotties, the three much missed scottie brothers. Here they are, doing what they did best – sitting in the kitchen waiting for scraps to fall to the floor – which wasn’t often. Gus thought that by performing he might benefit from a treat or two, but Bobba and Fin-Fin knew that if one got a treat, then they all did!
Awww …… Fin-Fin, very much missed, as are Bobby and Gus from the last two Flashback postings, but this is what our Flashbacks do for us, they make us remember all the happier times. This is one of those when we had the big motorhome. Fin loved sitting up front, and here he is, modelling the latest fashion in scottie headgear – think the look says it all.
