A good day to end the year
on: slowly melting snow turning into mud with the odd very icy patch to catch the unwary. The Killin Two are on their way to join us and the Aussies : The Merse where men are men and the sheep are grey, muddy and disagreeable, ruminating away about possible changes to the Common Agricultural Policy and how this may effect them in 2006. Whatever the fine tuning it is mutton for them one way or the other.The scientific section of the Hutton Think Tank are sponsoring resaerch on feeding pregnant yews with Mint Sauce Supplement so as the wee lambs are born Aga ready; first lot due on stream by February so keep alert for Sir Morrison's announcements ending in 'Another reason for shopping in Tescos'
Tonight is Old Year's Night. Two miles away as the infected goose flies they will be enjoying New Year's Eve. Vomit levels roughly similar but look for traces of Newcastle Ale to the south of us and Famous Grouse in these parts-possibly laced with Iron Bru to take the harm away. Here it is then Hogmanay-no disrespect to swine intended and the cross borderers are stuck with boring old New Years Day. Spellchecker suggests 'Mess' for 'Merse' No doubt some one will clear it up eventually.
