Right this fecking snow can poke off, it’s now delaying the finishing of my Aux O/B bracket, I need an URGENT resupply or airdrop of an 11mm drll, a pot of white smoothrite, and some white wine.

Oh no disaster has struck: no white wine!!!!!!!!

The weather is grim here too - no postie and therefore no OB parts for me to finish off the wee Honda... There's a mad rush for milk and rolls at the Co-op - why?

All roads out of town appear closed to anyone without a tractor. So a good excuse for a walk up to the Jubilee for a pint and warm in front of the coal fire... The chap at the dive shop has been doing good business ferrying people around in the Unimog:

Roger - I assume you've decided to stay down south for a while longer?

Hi Steve

We were planning on heading up as far as Cheshire on Sunday then on to Fife Monday. Still under review as the forecast shows some improvement from Sunday but Plan B is to postpone until Wednesday.

Your mention of the Co-op having no rolls reminded me of the classic Burnistoun "Nae rolls" sketch:

Hi Roger

Drive safe when you come up!
The rolls sketch is very funny and happening for real on the High Street in Burntisland and we type! :rofl

Hmmm . . . not sure about essential supplies?
Looks to me like you sneaked into Cupar for a couple of Fisher & Donaldson fudge donuts . . . :lol:
