For newcomers

At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

The season's greetings and best wishes to all my readers.
Thanks for your comments and I look forward to exciting projects in 2014

What?! No Rudolph? No sack of toys...uh, hiking equipment?

Happy Christmas to you and your kin, Conrad. See you in the new year.

(Has Katie gotten Christmas fever yet? What fun to see the holiday through a child's eyes!)

Merry Christmas Conrad. Ho Ho Ho and all that.

Sir Hugh said...

The Crow - Sorry about that, but of course I am an unfeeling male (no that's not really true), there you are, some brackets.

I am looking forward to seeing Katie reacting to Christmas. Daughter has already introduced the thing about an elf moving to different locations every day, something which I knew nothing of before, and little now, except that I think it originates from your side of the water.

Compliments and best wishes to you. I always enjoy your comments.


Hi Alan - good to hear from you. All the best.

wp (if I may!) - I prefer that as the word of the year - sums up what we should be about!

if I may trespass and camp on Sir H's blog - I hope a merry Xmas was had by all, for a happy and active New Year for all, indeed for all 2014: I enjoy reading the posts and comments from everyone - they bring the breath of fresh upland airs to the febrile miasmas of the metropolis: thanks to you all n'all !
