an overnight stay anywhere in Killie would be unthinkable, bad enough having a bevvy there. What time are you lot meeting? I have a very busy day in front of me on Saturday, doing my D.O.C. in afternoon, plus toastmaster at meal in the evening. Will drop in if possible for a wee while for a dram or three. Plenty buses out of Killie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Billy.

Whilst it's terribly bad form to post directly after oneself on a consistent basis, can I just point out to the country defeated everywhere else apart from Bannockburn that I plan to invade at around noon tomorrow. Please don't stand on the jetty throwing porridge and haggis as it's not an effective form of warfare nowadays. Twisted Evil

Kilmarnock to Scunthorpe non-stop in 3hrs 40 minutes this morning. Many thanks to John for putting me up and also to Diedre, Michael and Darren in Northern Ireland. I suppose I'd also better mention my gratitude to Chris for keeping his hands to himself in Galway....... Twisted Evil

Pictures to follow......

Rich,
You are extremely welcome, really glad that you had a good trip and made it home safely. You are welcome back anytime( that is official from herself). I seriously enjoyed myself. Standing in pouring rain, drinking beer and not catching fish are becoming CFF traditions for me.
Very Happy
