Tractor Tales

Bert and a few of his friends went to that Gig on the Bann in Portglenone last night. They said it was good, but not as good as last year. I picked them up outside the Wild Duck sometime after midnight. We did not see any tractors in Portglenone itself, just the one young reveller in Ahoghill returning from a night out.

When Bert was sixteen he used to take this girl out for a spin on his dad's wee Fergie. It was a pity he cowped it, cutting capers to impress his lady friend. Thankfully Bert and his date were unhurt but the tractor was wrecked. It would have been worth a fortune today. But that's young boys for you. They're at everything.

Happy birthday! Was going to send you a 'gift' on Facebook, then realised they expected me to pay $1 for the priviledge of sending a small cartoon picture of a balloon. Er, I don't think so. I'm sending you a rather beautiful mental image of a balloon, though.
Have a lovely day! :)

I was wondering where that mental image of a balloon popped up from!
