Peebles to Moffat the Counter-Attack
We may well have been sent homewards tae think again from our ill-fated expedition up the Moffat and Manor hills last April. And having been home for a while, and having thought again, and remembering that we vowed to have another crack at this, I am confirming the dates for Round 2. This will begin on Saturday 25 September 2010 in the Bridge Inn in Peebles and continue to Moffat, or at least towards Moffat. A return journey from Moffat to Peebles will be made beginning on Tuesday 28 September 2010 and this will veer sharply towards Tibbie Shiels Inn, not because they treated us so well last time (which they did) but purely because it is there. Invites by email went out some time ago and many replies received. One or two people’s intentions still remain mysterious, but there has been a certain amount of fresh email chatter and some snatched car park conversations which confirm that there’s likely to be a bunch at least. Note that if your old man is a dustman, we’re still not sure if you’re coming. I will be sending a soothing confirmation email out shortly with meeting times and places and a proposed timetable. If this doesn’t turn into a farce, I might well organise it again in September 2011.

I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
