    Hi Dunc, whereabouts in the Granite City are you? The ex-SWMBO grew up there, so we used to drive up to her folks two or three times a year from Essex. Loved the area. I once met a bloke from Australia in The Grill Bar in Union St bragging how back home he could be in the mountains skiing in the morning and then at the beach swimming in the afternoon. I told him Aberdeen was the same with the Grampians up the road and it's beautiful seven-mile beach, and with the added advantage you wear the same clothes in both locations.

    Welcome Dunc!

    I also took a detour via the heavy-iron made in the U.S.
    And picked up my T120 couple of days ago.
    Guess, I was very lucky: The cranberry-silver version just arrived that week, was for sale and became mine in a flash. But the dealer said, he waited quite a while to get this colour-scheme.

    Have fun here!

    Ah, Grannie's Sunday Post. And I'd wait with eager anticipation for my favourite Xmas present, the Oor Wullie and The Broons annuals. It was a travisty when they went to bi-annual.

    Mind you, as an Aberdonian by marriage I should answer neither. Efter all, they're fae Dundee

    And you can keep your fancy croissants. Rowies aka morning rolls are the proper way to load up on butter (and lard) for breakfast.

    Noo, fit aboot Black Bob?
