  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Amusing things on travels??? by jay on 18 March 2003 4:30pm
I was once in the Kyle of Lochalsh, sat in my car, waiting to go on the ferry to Skye (before they built the bridge). I could see the ferry chugging across the water towards us.. t'was a sunny day, about 10am, the birds were twittering.. Out of my open car window on my right stood a very smart man dressed in a suit, shirt and tie. Clean shaven and respectable looking he was... He was leaning back against the wall smiling pleasantly. He gently started to lean to his right, then a bit more, and still further. After a moment of pause, he collapsed to the hard harbour floor. He layed there, still smiling, as an empty whisky bottle rolled from his hand.
No one payed the least bit of attention as they passed by... And there he remained, slumped.
Any similar stories??

Hahahaha! How odd? I don't quiet have similar stories but my Uncle's friend sent him via e-mail some funny pictures of Africa, subject "Only in Africa". I don't know if he toke the pictures or if he got them on the internet, but they're quiet odd! Like one was
"Notice-Public Bar: Our public bar is presently not open because it is closed. Manager" or "This Month's Specials "NO GAS" at a gas station. Oh, and there was a "SOTP" on the road, if anyone would like to see these pictures (there's only like, 5), just e-mail me at [email protected] and I'll gladly forward them over :)
