Winning Trophies

I am once again overwhelmed at the generosity of the University of Strathclyde.  It was very kind of them to organise a very posh dinner with our very own quartet playing in the background; a private audience with Lord Smith of Kelvin and some fantastic company for Derek's birthday.  The only thing that they forgot, was for the entire room to stand up and sing Happy Birthday.

We outdoor people, don't normally win trophies as such so I was blown away when I was presented with one.  [Note to my mum:  mum - I still don't want the display cabinet that you have been trying to pass onto me!]  So, to Niall Sturrock (the man behind the plan) I say a very public "Thank you" for organising something that I will never forget.

Back to normality again ...
