Seems that Donald Trump was in Aberdeen last week for a round of golf and to continue to split local opinions. He parked his aeroplane right next to Bond Helicopters corner of the airport. I shall be looking for him in the Guinness book of Records under carbon footprint.
Popped into Aberdeen art gallery to see what's going on there - after a cup of tea naturally - and discovered that the Lewis Chess Pieces have arrived there. I have seen them in London but they were much better spaced out in Aberdeen. If you ever get a chance to see them do so - there's some delightful Celtic carving round the back of some of them (you only ever see the fronts in pictures). Being Aberdeen art gallery they were well watched so I couldn't get any pictures of them but, with another exhibition on just now celebrating 125 years of the gallery, it seems the staff have spread themselves to thin so I grabbed a quick snap of Jacob Epstein's Girl with Gardinias (you're an attentive bunch so you will remember his statue, The Visitation, from Glenkiln a few blogs ago)
I went to see Made in Dagenham at the pictures in the evening. It's about the 1968 Ford sewing machinest strike and is thoroughly good.
I had a short but pleasant visit to Dunoon on the way home to visit the kids and spotted this battleship from the ferry on the way back. By gum it was fairly nipping along. Let's hope it's not off anywhere serious.
