Straiton Fun Day


 The forecast wasn't good,but actually turned out fine.
This year's theme was cartoon characters from a certain company...and there were a lot of mice about.....




 hurling the (6 kg) handbag
 and the vicar , with shepherd's crook, keeping an eye on his flock.
 tossing the sheaf...a tattie sack filled with straw,I think.
the winner is declared the biggest tosser in Straiton.....


The fellrunners getting their instructions
 and their sendoff by the laird
 running to the monument and back...this year won in 20 minutes as it was very slippery underfoot

A good day, but no pot sales and only seven cards....

"A good day, but no pot sales and only seven cards.... "

I know that feeling. It is most depressing especially whan you've poured heart and soul into what you make...

Hmm - bet the winner is looking forward to a year wearing the "Biggest Tosser in Straiton" tee shirt. Perhaps you should design the trophy for next year's competition, which would have to be called "The Toss Pot" of course.
