Hello there! You ll have had your tea? Dougal here. Well, here we go, with our wee book. It s a collection or pot pourri (I ve no idea what Hamish means by that it sounds like something to do with the Pope) of our activities or doings in the village we call home, because that s exactly what it is. Together with our housekeeper, Mrs Naughtie, and of course, the Laird who lives up at the big hoose and shoots grouse and other bottles of whisky, these are the actual scripts of our wee show which we performed on the wireless, when most of you were probably in bed! Hamish and I have known each other all our lives well, not yet, obviously! We have a very close relationship and also with each other. Mrs Naughtie been with us since we first met her at the Krankie Arms, where she was working as part-time barmaid and bouncer. In addition to the scripts you ll find all kinds of other things tucked away under its kilt. There s a hectic social life in the village. You ll visit the 'bide a wee' cafe, proud possess
