A wee bit of rain fell today, the left overs of yet another US hurricane that they send to us. Some areas are inundated, we just got wet if we stepped outside. The media, well the 'Daily Mail' has been threatening all sorts of things that will happen to us, once again they were wrong. The dogs in the park I noticed were thoroughly enjoying themselves, not so the folks that will be cleaning them up when they get home. It appears the hot summer is over, the dying embers will flair now and again but the nights are closing in again.
The football season proper got under way this weekend and as expected the Heart of Midlothian defeated one half of the evil twins easily. Unusually the Govan Masons did not get the help they expected from the referee, there were no late minute penalties, no sending's off, although six yellow cards were handed out, and somewhat harshly I felt regarding some of these, the ref did stick to the laws of the game for the most part. This may not happen all season of course. So once again we begin the long haul, week by week, worry by worry, not for us the worry, that's for the rest to do.
