After a lovely snack and a pot of tea for two in Dumfries, we are comfortably (thanks to the Tiger Balm muscle rub we’ve practically washed in) sat on the Stagecoach # 246 to Cumnock.
There’s not much to do but contemplate life whilst we have all this time on our hands, and to be honest we are too exhausted to talk!
The things I’ve learnt so far on this trip about Dad.
- He actually wanted to be a cop, but got talked out of it by his family (Mmmm, I wonder why? 😉
- He got up to some very naughty things in his teens (mainly with this elder brother), but shush, don’t tell Mum!
- That you should never take your parents for granted. Spend time with them whilst you can and ask them questions – it’s amazing what you find out. 😀
