Soppy Sunday

  1. Hi Tris – been a while, but Happy New Year to you and the wee guy. Had to drop a line given that pic No 1 is a bout 50 miles from where I’m currently living at in Calgary. In fact I’ll be heading up there on Monday for some skiing – superb; and for a guy raised on Glenshee and The Lecht etc, what more could I want! World class. However, enough of that – I hope everything goes well for you in 2017 and more importantly, hope all my friends and relies back home finally throw off the blinkers and get right behind indy! No more fanning about folks – unless you want even more May-day


    1. Hi Gary, great to hear from you.

      It is awesome scenery you have there. I hope you have some great skiing.

      Like you, I hope this is the year that we can persuade Scots to realise that being hitched to the UK isn’t really working n their best interests. Munguin is, of course, on the job! Mayhem on Mayday is what we are looking forward to at the moment.

      Happy New Year to you from both of us.



  2. oh weren’t those lovely. There is nothing to beat a crisp, clear, cold winters’s day. I’d much rather have that than warmer but damp. They do say that dogs are a man’s best friend. It seems they are the forest man’s best friend too.

    Yon Canadian lynx looks very fluffy but probably best given a wide berth if you see one. And no Gary we don’t want more may-hem but Nicola needs to be seen to be offering the olive branch to Westminster and having it flung in her face before we can move on.

    Thanks for the cheetah. Sad to say we could have a SS with only pictures of endangered animals and not repeat the species!


    1. I think Nicola is playing a blinder. I know the press is saying that she is backing down on independence, and they are treating it like a victory for Britannia ruling the waves and empire and all, but of course what she is doing is showing that she is a democrat prepared to explore all avenues and only going to say “referendum” when there is no alternative, and only Liam Fox’s talents stand between us and no trade.

      I despair of the fact that we are losing so many beautiful animals.

      Where can we look for some sort of leadership about this?


      1. tris

        yeah a real blinder ! (niko rolls eyes upwards) I seed her today on the wunnerful BBC
        the patriotic channel and her eyes showed her lack of confidence (cant lie as good as Alex )
        if she got into a boxing ring with that look she would be on a loser.
        She draws out that indyref 2 like a gun but its just a little damp squib now
        the polls how the people are not with her on this one .

        Nicolas song
        “Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail,

        “There’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my tail.
        See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
        They are waiting on the shingle – will you come and join the dance?
        Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?
        Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?

        Nah ! the Scots will not join the snp Dance

  3. Since I saw the pics this morning this song has been rolling round in my head:

    Mud, mud, glorious mud
    Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
    So follow me, follow
    Down to the hollow
    And there let us wallow in glorious mud.

    Flanders and Swann

  4. tris,

    This is my go to place on the whole of the internet. When I log on, this is where I come.

    I am somewhat saddened to see that Bella Caledonia will be no more. For that was about number two to your good self.

    If you require support in any way, please let us all know. Do not let it fester as Mike, apparently has.

    For I would hate to lose you.

    1. Thanks Douglas. It seems that Mike really miffed a lot of people and when he tried to fund raise, people just said no. His latest fund raiser went fizzzzzzzz.

      I’m lucky, I don’t need to be funded. Munguin’s millions and his second-hand gold keeps us afloat.



  5. The Westminsterites and their supporters like to pretend that Britain/UK/England is a one nation unitary state ruled over by their Monarch and through the Crown in parliament,them.
    Perhaps Blair’s “Supreme” court will shed some light on this,perhaps not.
    Cameron should have listened to Sturgeon when he had a chance but it is too late now,and as we used to say back in the day (Aly’s Tartan Army Argentina 1978……) Que Sera Sera.
