Ah got up at 1am this mornin and looked oot the windae - cloudy wi minor breaks & few stars. Went back tae cozy bed. Half an oor later the alarm goes aff again - bingo, clearing nicely. Right... up oot the village intae the hills away fae the street lights here we come.

Got dressed, oot intae the car and drove up ontae the main road. Parked polis caur wi blue lights flashin and twa plod in hi-vis jaikits standin in the road wavin me doon. "Good evening sir, just a routine check". Walks roond the car wi his torch, stops at the front, makes a wee PNC check on his radio while shinin' the torch on ma number plate, then comes back roond and asks ma name then says "right sir that's fine thanks, off you go", nae other questions asked.

Now this is quarter tae two in the mornin in the middle of naewhere. Canny help wonderin if this wis doon tae simple polis nightshift boredum.

Ah only saw 8 meteors and a polar orbiting satellite in hauf an oor btw, so it wisnae exactly a spectaculurr light show.

Embdy else been oot huvvin a wee meteor swatch the last three nights?

Whit in the name o' Christ is happenin' tae this forum?

Wance upon a time we used tae discuss things like "interestin' places Ah huv woke up in efter a micht oan ra bevvy", or "Does deid cyclists qualify as Roadkill and are they any guid curried?"

Now we're da'en meteor watchin.......

Ah hate tae say it, but there's a definite uncharecteristic, unwelcome and thouroughly unwholesome niceness breaking oot on this howf these days.

The lack of W*** chased us away years ago.  I love a good walk in the rain but I couldnie hack it every day.  It's naw the rain that's the problem.  It's the cawl dampness.  A different kind of rain.  
Here, it's a blessing.

Haw yoo.....

Shuttit.     I'm now going to take back the nice stuff I said in the other post.  

I think the way they words came easy to your noggin is that's what you would like to do yerself.     To yourself.  ( I hope I made that bit clear.).

You keep they shenanigans to yourself.  I'm wae passed doing anything in the rain.   Mah arthritis couldnae cope fer wan.  

I guess that wis yer young mucky layer.   (rolleyes).
