A healthy bakery scene, familiar to myself. (I was a fortrose baker alexanders bakery). Matheson's were good bakers. Shame the village baker is few and far between.

(EDITOR: Please don't post messages all in capitals. It looks very shouty and we have to laboriously reformat. Thanks.)

Haunch o a robee'n explained. scene set. "A-Do"in the Byre Restaurant a Buffet. Ethel & I were last in the que she said to me "cam awa me cheil-eek-kee & tak the haunch o a robee'n iv'e been histerical not quite right eversince. Cromarty humour has this effect on one! this is unduluted Cromarty at it's best. Cromarty woman looking for her son said "Div thee see him that I have". Ah!sure the craic was excellent not much money but we did have fun three cheers for Cromarty & thanks to our Editor Davy Jones for his quick attention Slainte Mhath dear friends.
