Life is often strange

The end of Autumn is when Christmas approaches, and one thinks of Winter, and what to write about Linn Park.

This time the writing of the Winter article has proved somewhat different; simply put, life was disrupted when one of us had his third major heart attack. Nothing strange in that, having had two previous ones. But it is the impact - not only on the patient, but more importantly on close friends and partners.

The Linn Park Gentlemen's Walking Club generally sets off around the park on a Wednesday afternoon from the Snuff Mill Bridge - earlier in the Winter and later when its lighter. Usually a few of us then go for a pint in The Old Smiddy.

Please feel free to join us ... Ladies and Dogs welcome. Best to email us first to check the exact time on the day - but not too late !
