You might have noticed stained glass windows make a fairly regular appearance on this blog. Not half as regular as they do in my piles of photos that I take. If I was to blog them all there would be a distinct imbalance in the content here. With that in mind, I've started a new blog, simply called Windows, where I can post it without worrying to much about overdoing the fancy glazing. That doesn't mean that there won't be any more here, the next blog after this (Dunblane Cathedral) should have a few, and there will likely be plenty links between here and there.
I should post some of my Dunblane photos today because one of their local boys is having a big day today. It is, of course, Andy Murray (I'm sure his web page is busy enough today) who is playing this afternoon in the Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic (his web page will be equally busy but I'm sure I can't make out a word of it).
Here's Andy's gold letterbox. The Post Office painted one in the hometown of every person who one a gold medal at the Olympics last year.
The local museum have a case full of Andy Murray memorabilia - perhaps they should get a bigger one.
A large number of the shops in Dunblane have tennis related themes going on in their windows. Just a few simple tennis balls in the butchers window (unless somebody can see where pies fit into it all)
The local laundry's banner is straight to the point.
Bennetts the butchers (of the pie filled window earlier) have been getting inventive in the kitchen for the occasion.
I paid their Facebook page a visit to see if I could find out just what they were trying to sell (the less said about the guess the knee competition the better probably). Here's a pile of Wimbledon Sausages - pork sausages with sweet chilli and strawberries - sounds interesting to me. Unfortunately it's nearly two weeks before I'll have access to a frying pan and I don't live close enough anyway or you'd certainly have a report on these. Anyone nearby want to pop in and trial them for me??
Here's one of their saltire burgers. Pork and tomato wrapped in a couple of bits of bacon - sounds good too.
Finally, here's a small knitted Andy. Best of luck to the real Andy down in SW19
Late News - Hurray!! The lad's done it. Well done Andy.
