Many years back at one (second?) Sandy River Spey Claves on a Friday evening where we were all doing a 'Pot Luck' dinner.' The 'before's' were getting very wet with Single Malts. Went back to my motor home and got the last of the last.

Letuce tri thus .... Who knew????

His Father in Law lived on the grounds of the Distillery. Simon took the wrapper off the top of the cork, pulled it and tossed it over his shoulder.

"We need not being needing that any more."

Wolk up the next morning and drunk people all over the RV floors. No idea who the guy was laying on my bed next to me. The good thing was I a had a 5# bag of Krusties (sp?) pancake flower and three dozen eggs. Someone else had sauge in a cooler.

A generator for electric power in a MH is a good thing; hot plate and pans going till we ran out. No idea how many we fed, but empty plates/forks being washed next to me. NEXT!

One other of those times where I had the 'English Casting' (Carron) guys as my guests up in Washington. Was not my plan, but with the help of a wonderfull lady (I'll leave names out of this) and an unexpected dinner for 22.

15'ish pounds of pork ribs, 12 pounds of spud and lots of Camble Mushroom Soup. They drank save for her Husband, who like me, was not 'allowed.' Fried, into a big pot with the soup/cooked spuds.

'You'll have to get your own plates as I only have twelve.'

Gwenneth is/was one hell of a Lady. "What do you have on board?"

Driving the casting crew back to the airport (Sea-Tac) and found out how "The People" were. Never been 'big money' but know many. These folks were will beyond my knowledge.

A card in the mail a few weeks later: 'If you'd ever like to come to Scotland we'ed like to be your host.'

Had to reply: 'I have an old dog, and there's no way I'm leaving him (Sheba) behind.'

Reply: "We understand, we have dogs too."

Very good People.
