Fishy Tales on North Uist

Today I have added two stories which I hope might amuse.

Both are suitable for older children from 8 to 80.

Murphy’s Midnight Manuevers” is about a Labrador who is led astray....

Three Men and a Minnow” is about elderly men who go trout fishing...

Both tales are set on the Island of North Uist, in the Outer Hebrides.

If you find yourself lucky enough travel to this paradise, try “Langass Lodge” for excellent food and comfortable accommodation.

Drivel and Goo!

Today I have spent several hours editing “Travels of a Donkey”. It is overlong, self-indulgent and idiosyncratic twaddle! Don’t bother to attempt it without the help of strong drugs!

However, there is also “Wichita Lineman” which I do recommend to anyone who has been infected by the People’s Friend bug, as I was as a child.

Chalk and Cheese

Today I offer complete drivel in the shape of “The Dreaded Call”.

Mercifully it turned out to be short, so go on, read it!

And then there is “Ticket to Ride”, a 50 Shades story! So be warned!

A welcome to a new grandchild

Today I have added two odes and a longer piece which tells of the excitement leading to the birth of our second grandchild.

Ethan is now a toddler, racing around, full of fun and mischief.

He is nearly always laughing.

And now he is on the edge of speaking. He has a LOUD voice!

Wonderful!

These are “Flying Start” “Sprint Finish” and “Ethan’s Big Event
