Sorry no blogs been a hard week after. losing my old pal Tom MacDonald. I had some great memories that came flooding back. Mostly of our young days in the hills. Thanks to everyone who contacted me with so many great words. They are so appreciated by many of his family and pals.
Mountaineering makes friendships that last for life we may lose touch but it’s so worth working at them over the years. I am so glad to have known Tom shared so many adventures In our lives. It’s so hard to think he is gone. As the mountain flowers come out this year it will be special as they will always remind me of Tom.
I am lucky I was with my Grandaughters last week to see them laugh Nf have fun is a great thing to have in my life. Then to head over West and see my friend Kalie despite a wet weekend was special. As I drove over to the West I saw lights coming of the hill in the dark on Beinn Eighe. Then lots of Torridon MRT Wagons in the lay-by. Someone was needing help and the Team were there.
Life goes on and losing a pal makes you rethink life. Live every day and be kind to folk, stay in touch with those you love and enjoy what we have.
If anyone has good climbing photos of Tom I would love a copy.
