    a cross between the coalman and lachie wid be hard to beat, that would even get me reaching in my pocket, now thats just a ridiculous statement, i've never put my hand in my pocket for anything or anyone!!!
    lachie's sister in law maureen, dan's widow baked me the biggest cream cake you ever saw last week, it was two and a half foot by a foot and six inches deep, filled with cream and blackberry jam, and guess who was the only one told he wasn't allowed a bit? aye that'll be right, it was delivered to the door on the friday night by her sister margaret, my sisters mother in law, for me and the wife's 25th, it was no more by lunchtime saturday, diabetic or naw diabetic, nothing was stopping me having more than my share, the wife made the mistake of going to glasgow on the saturday and leaving me and the cake in the same hoose, best thing i tasted in many years, see what reaction i get if i just say maureen's cake to my two sitting here? they are sitting saying "monies' cake, mmmmm, yummy!!!"
    wid bring a smile even to lachie's soor pooss, poor lad, used to have a good sense of humour too!!!
