Right then, now that I've found Cubbie's key, I can go fire the wee beastie up and get ready for the Big Day tomorrow. I cleaned it yesterday. You wouldn't believe how shiny it is. Lovely. Wheels and all. Looks like I'm meeting Slim in Turra, Alan in Keith, Kawa somewhere near Inverness, Mark on the Black Isle, Geoff & Julie are going up today in their camper van for a long long weekend, Captain Bill wasn't able to fix his Armstrong in time so he's going to meet us there in his car and Fido doesn't like the look of the forecast so is taking his bike in his van - well we did have a thunder storm and hail stones yesterday. Can't get in touch with ma man in Nairnshire, Andy, who was going to give me the guided tour, so I think we'll pop in at his house and surprise him. Sid was up in Dornoch last weekend and said it was cold, wet and windy and doesn't want to go back again quite so soon. And Ian said we have to call in for a cuppa on the way home. Bring it on! Pop pop pop pop pop pop....................................
Oh go on then, I spose I'd better check the Cubbie's Counties Paypal Account, just in case.
And then dig out my *NEW* sleeping bag, blanket (just in case), spare clothes for when I get a soaking, stick some polish on ma beets, sorry, boots, and dubbin on ma gloves.
Ooooh, just found out Mrs BC is going to be a bit merry by the time I get back, those nice people at Aspall Cyder are going to send her a load of alcoholic apple juice as a result of her alerting them to a faulty bottle. S'alright for some.
