Looks like I gotta bring you to one of our Stitch&Bitch sessions where hot ladie and gentlemen get creative and loud . So you understand, as a proper Scottish person, the ultimate benefits of wool, all year round! When we are done with this coro-schtick.



This guys is amazing, wish he was ours.

Did he even realise someone had thrown a giant fried egg on his head?

Re: He's back!

On the topics of kilt and recovery: said local teacher is finding some of the eccentricities from the Anglo-Saxon world rather entertaining and thinks I'm off my rockers at times! So, when she challenged me to do the Time Warp Dance (Rocky Horror Show), in full Scottish regalia, at the exact time of our local police patrol (they come at 6.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m. in our village to check social gathering numbers and distances are complied with), I don't think she believed anyone in their right mind would do it...


I won myself 6 bottles of wine!...


It's just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right, with your hands on your hips,
You bring your knees in tight.
But it's the pelvic thrust.
They really drive you insane.
Let's do the Time Warp again.
Let's do the Time Warp again.... Let's do the Time Warp again!

Not the Covid 19, it hasn't left, yet, but your humble, yodelling servant! First, I want to thank the few EF members who wrote to me personally out of concern, this was really uplifting. I did endure a chemo which is now coming to an end and this, combined with confinement on my own away from my kids, virtual teaching...it all took out a lot of my time and energy. But the good news is that all my test results are bloody fantastic, showing quite remarkable recovery and I didn't tell them I had a wee dram of Whisky every night to cheer me up, as I don't think I was meant to. But it certainly didn't do any harm!


A nice Coronovirus story for you: first week into lock down, I helped the local primary school teacher who felt overwhelmed with all the virtual classrooms as it looks like they are only NOW receiving proper training! So, obviously, she was impressed with my technological skills (which are non existent - see other threads - but even a dummy like me can cope with Google Classroom, yeaaah!) and she asked me to do a "distance walk" in the woods with her... I don't know if it's the kilt that had this effect on her, but I'm a gentleman and won't give details (even if you beg me!), but let's say romance is blossoming nicely (and cautiously, although distance rules were not always met!).


Add to this some rather flirtatious messages from one of my yodel colleagues and some rather forthcoming exchanges with my two divorcee neighbours who treat me like I'm the last man on Earth standing (must be confinement fever, they're all going crazy - that or they've mixed my chemo with some love potion!)... you now know why I REALLY focused my energy off screen!


And tonight, despite a difficult day with chemo, I had promised my neighbours that I would do a candle-lit ghost story telling for the neighbourhood kids, outside on the (now reclaimed) street and car park. So, all dressed up as a 19th century Highway man, face painted in white, top hat, Victorian cape, the lot, I kept those kids' full attention OFF screen for a full two hours. They were in awe and now all want to go to Scotland on holiday, as soon as confinement is over. It was lovely and yes, every kid was at least 4 meters apart, which means I have no voice left!


Nice to be back. What have I missed?

I had a wee dram of Whisky every night

You always had a tendency to pop in and out with varying degrees of regularity so I must admit I didnít really think anything about your absence.

Iím very happy to read that you are on the mend and can still find things to smile about.

Oh, popping in and out and smiling a lot seems a good summary of my life right now!
