Andytown News diarist with an eye on the week just gone, or indeed the one just ahead. Interested in the strange, the funny and the totally bonkers.
Shin-deep in water but no dipper today. Fallen trees often left in place – they're natural highways for wildlife
Passing under Colinglen Road to upper glen. Bit of shelter from snow – cold and damp, though
Colin River from bridge. Lovers' seat to left. Not much call for it today
Right or left? That's the kind of decision for a day like that – not tea or coffee
Lake drains into small waterway which drains into Colin River below
Pelican crossing on bank of lake. Or more likely a moorhen
I'm pretty sure I saw a brown bear looking down at me from somewhere up there
Swam here when kids in 70s. Often sound of bombs/bullets from below. Wouldn't try it today (swimming, not bombs)
High ground looking over to Hannahstown homes. Black Mountain lost in snow cloud. Can't even see it from office
Couple of other hardy souls out too in Colin Glen. That sky is bellying with snow. You gotta get out and love it
Support your local shops. I know we will on Saturday. And have a fine time into the bargain
It's a rat trap Edwin... Poots gets rid of beds, but it takes more than a stroke of a pen to get rid of Mater rats
If @williamcrawley thinks finding the Orr plaque in Templepatrick was hard on a sunny day, pity me and Dúlra...
I don't know what Anthony Foley's job consists of, exactly, but I wish him well
Dear BBC: if you think they're violent when they return from tours you want to see them during tours #stillhurting
Ocean-going, museum-quality Little Englanders. Here's what The Times thinks most important about the new Pope
Now this 'steak at a friend's wedding', on the other hand...
I don't care – this scone does not look like Ireland
Just received this book through the post. So bonkers it's hilarious. Me and @Neekyatn had a quare laugh
Can't think why anyone would want to paint this road sign green, white and orange. It's to be deplored. Obviously
