Went to harestanes to see my good friends photography exhibition today, and boy i was not disappointed the grandure of the borders landscape is only beaten by the highlands. You need to see his work for yourself to appreciate how good he is in capturing the photo we would all like to take.
Less than two weeks to go to the galloway country fair where i will be showing some of my work, mirrors, boxes, tables and some smaller things.
Well a new week an ah still here folk moanin their arse's aff about what crossing borders do for me? Well over the last 3 weeks i can tell yae ave run ma ass tae the bone, organising a stand at the border union show for all of you and you can't get even get aff yer fat lazy arse's and reply to the invite on the forum. so if you want me to bill you all, then start by getting your money out to cover my costs of over 6 hundred of your right regal pounds so that you can have the privilege of selling you art work to the largest gathering in the borders of the year, but if you still think that we don't do anything for you then just look in the mirror and ask yourself how many members did you promote over the last couple of weeks and if you can come up with same answer as myself then yer a bloody liar? you should all be a shamed that you expect a committee which is made up of makers themselfs to drop all their own work and run around everyday at there own expense to promote you when you should be doing that for every member .
