For reasons known only to our Immigration bureaucrats (don’t ask), I was not able to join Mr. Free Market, Doc Russia and Combat Controller for the annual deer slaughter stalk in the Cairngorms this year (for my experiences two years ago, see here and here).  I was feeling somewhat peeved about it all, until Mr. FM sent me this pic:

I should point out that the temperature for the town nearby is given as 33°F for the daytime high, and about 5 degrees lower tonight.  I should also point out that this is a complete lie, as the temperature up in the hills  — where all the hunting takes place — is probably ten degrees colder than that, and that’s before  the 20mph wind kicks in.  I think the term is “witch’s tit cold”.

Suddenly, I’m not feeling as peeved as I was.  Tonight’s forecast low of 30°F here in Plano seems quite balmy by comparison, especially as I’ll be sitting indoors with a brandy & ginger ale in hand, and not freezing my nuts off in the Angus Glens.

Cheers, guys…


  1. For about 25 years I left Oklahoma on the morning of Veteran’s Day to head for our deer hunt in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. My hunting buddy, mentor and good friend passed away a year nd a half ago and I sort of lost interest in heading for the big woods. This morning I was feeling a little sorry for myself until I looked at the weather and saw that the temperature was 19 F in Iron Mountain Michigan and there was a bunch of snow along I-35 on my route north. The regret I felt about not making the trip started to fade. Maybe we’re getting too old for this stuff.

  2. Home Office is looking at social media history. You might get one of those letters that you are an Undesirable from them any day now.

    I think you should really start considering your options. On framing and display.

    1. I fail to see what in the above post could be offensive to anyone.

      And even if so… fuck ’em if they can’t take a joke.

      1. I don’t think anything you said in your post above is offensive to anyone, except maybe the Tourist Board for the Cairngorms.
        I think it is your dedication to telling truth to the traitorous cowards in power everywhere that makes you PNG with said traitorous cowards in power.

      2. I’m not talking about this post, I’m talking about the totality of your online footprint. They are doing “investigations” now that only seem to impact people on the right side of the aisle, and not jihadis or Antifa or anyone like that.

  3. Looks like where I was last week. this part of the world is stick and string season but it will look like that next month in gun season.

    Bambi, its whats for dinner.
