I Am Not Amused


I am Not Amused
The “Grumpy Old Man” posing for his admirers

The “Grumpy Old Man” was on a road trip yesterday to the seaside. On the way he stopped off at the now disused Hadlow Road railway station, which has been preserved to give an authentic 1950’s look.

The station is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building. It is one of two visitor centres on the Wirral Way, with the other at Thurstaston where the platforms remain in situ, but the station has not been restored.

    Hello Mike…..just catching up after our hols. Very nice work again. I think he looks very good looking and NOT grumpy. Then again, I was not there. Lovely shot and treatment.

    Ahhh, Mike dont call him grumpy. He’s very dignified and quite a handsome specimen of the King Charles Cavalier. He looks to be a sweet dog but age does make some people and pets a tad on the ornery side. 🙂 I really liked the editing of his photo.

      I’m looking at him right now, Yvonne, and he’s got his Mr Grumpy face on. He’s not happy because I went out and left him at home for an hour.

        I think Mr Grumpy knows a lot more than one could ever imagine. Apparently he is attached to you but in a good way. Poor tittle thing. Just a bit more attention Mike for him and he’ll be happier- maybe? 🙂

          Just been down the beach with him, Mr Grumpy is filthy but content. Lying, snoring his head off.

      At the moment he’s sound asleep and content. Another hour and he will be barking to go out and then be fed
