2-4-6-8 Motorway

The van's just about loaded up, the last minute errands have been run - all I need now is my co-driver, also Richard, and we're ready to go.

Plan is to have a couple of beers tonight, get to bed early, then set off about 4am tomorrow, with the aim of getting to London by lunchtime, and allowing Richard #2 to get back to Leith in time for last orders. It's a great idea on paper, but there's a very fine line sometimes between heroism and stupidity - I really can't see this one happening somehow. 'Smokey and The Bandit' or 'Max and Paddy'? You decide... :-)

But returning firmly to the side of heroism, I'll leave you with this question: should we be lobbying to get 'Smeat' added to the dictionary as an alternative spelling for 'smite'? ("And lo! Verily, didst not the Weegies smeat the terrorists?")

Drive carefully and good luck in London :)

Last night at the local pub quiz we called our team "Smeaton one Bin Laden nil"

The man is fast becoming a legend.

I think we should have him elected as president when we get independence and establish a republic...

Thanks, Bill :-)

I take it then, Mark, that you demur from the fine sentiments of this song?
