Ever since De Trip on Saturday, I’ve been pondering the Ted and Dougal exchange – when Dougal went to the reunion and ‘D’you know what, Ted? They’d all become firemen!’ Comprehensive Google searches have failed to bring it up. Did I imagine it?
Meanwhile up in Kinloch Rannoch on Sunday, I felt a bit like Mrs Doyle. Brought my sermon but couldn’t find it. It wouldn’t matter a lot but then I thought it might be in the middle of the copies of the Diocesan Review I’d put at the back of the church. So I went out to the car to check. And found some German tourists thinking about coming in. So I hustled them inside and they said, ‘We don’t think we can stay. We’re Roman Catholics’ ‘Ah go on, go on, go on.’ And they did.
