Looks like I'm the only one who wants to play this game Catz :cry:

Anyway, Bob has gone a bit further afield and is crossing the bridge in Musselburgh, maybe he's off to the Caprice for a pizza :D

I wasn't wondering about him one little bit until you posted and now I'm frantic.

The autumn edition isn't available online yet and the hard copy doesn't always make it up the hill.

Please tell me where he is before I have an attack of the vapors.

That's nice. I wasn't too worried really. I mean, I knew he hadn't died or owt that like that cos if he had you wouldn't have used this smiley 8) but rather something like this :cry: or perhaps this :( .


I look forward to reading all about him.

There's some interesting stuff in there ecm. For example, I was surprised to find out that Bob gets excited by cut flowers :shock:

That's a bit bizarre, no? Perhaps it's a typo and they meant cute flowers.

Which would still be a bit mad.

Cute lowers maybe?


Yes, cute lowers sounds much more plausible.

I'm back. I've been away. More later.

And you're right, there should have been something in there about Cumberland sausage. And CUFC. And, specifically, I can't believe that there was no mention of Stan Bowles. Or Gale Porter for that matter. Or Fay Fife.

To explain about the flower thing: the exciting bit is that you get to spend huge sums of (someone else's) money on a perishable commodity, something that will be dead in a matter of days, in the hope of turning a profit on a ridiculously low margin. I remember one particular afternoon a few weeks prior to Xmas drinking large volumes of whisky with the then manager, trying to work out what to order. We extrapolated wildly from one particular customer's advance order and ended up buying about five times more than we could possibly hope to sell. A learning experience for me and another nail in the coffin for him. Have you seen the flower auction at Aalsmeer? It is (or at least was) the largest covered building in the world. The buyers there can make and lose fortunes and are usually burned out within a few years.
