Ah, well, at last, something completely different.
Over the past few months I have been snagged again by BBC Scotland’s “Scotland 2016” each evening, Mondays to Thursdays. This current affairs show is followed immediately by BBC UK’s “Newsnight” programme.
This viewing has been running in its groove, on and off, or a few years and has become a habit, if not yet another addiction.
Generally the reports do not make for happy viewing.
As has been said, what goes in, must. . .regurgitate?
Maybe I will revert to my old ways and drift back to La La Land there to watch old films, that comfy place where I already know the Happy Ending.
In the meantime.... Try “Then and Now”

Today I have added two read too stories for small children.
Perhaps they might be suitable for bedtime reading?
The first is called “Millie meets Ethan” and is a tale about who gets a birthday present of a huge cuddly toy called Millie the Spaniel.
The second is called “Harry Tallboy and Fairy Swish” and is about a boy who loves trains.
Both are available in hard copy, (free of charge), just let me know using the Contact Form.

Both are tales of revenge.
I have also replaced “Fidelity“ with a new version edited by Kareth Paterson, a friend from Writers’ Circus who has been toiling in the fields - nae jungle - of my verbose prose for some time now.
This version is much tighter, fewer errors, I hope.
Any remaining clangers are of course down to me.

I have added “State Secret”.
This is a piece which seemed easy to write but initially was full of holes.
It has been greatly improved by the excellent editing of my friend Kareth Patterson, from Writers’ Circus. Any remaining typos etc are mine.
I could not resist adding a role for Maisie Kaywood.
Perhaps will see Dymitri of this story on an another outing soon?

This little boy meets girl romance has its basis in my time working as an apprentice in Alexander Stephen and Sons shipyard at Linthouse, on the banks of the River Clyde.
I have not yet been to Benidorm but I did hear of many exploits from my fellow apprentices.
Read “The Glasmigos”
Despite the rigours of shipyard life common in those days, Stephens (Stevies) was a good place to serve an apprenticeship, providing excellent training for apprentices.
