THE LONELY MOUNTAIN...
The mountain in the distance is BEN LOMOND, taken on Saturday from the top of the street where I once lived back in the '60s and early '70s. It was clearly visible from my back garden (and also from my bedroom window if I popped my head out), and as I said in a previous post, when I first read The HOBBIT, it was easy to imagine that Ben Lomond was The LONELY MOUNTAIN under which the dragon SMAUG sat on hordes of treasure that BILBO BAGGINS and his crew hoped to 'liberate'.
Isn't imagination wonderful? Anyway, just thought I'd share the picture with you here. As I was taking it (minutes after leaving a friend's house), some fat brat on a bicycle called me a rude name as he whizzed past. I sincerely hope the little b*gger crashed into a lamppost as he sped away. That's what I'd call instant justice!
