GUEST,cobra Stories from the road - accommodation (39) RE: Stories from the road - accommodation 07 Feb 08

I have had the pleasure of reading Seamus's book and I can heartily recommend. It is a thoroughly entertaining read. And, more to the point, based on the bits of it and the people involved who were/ are known to me, it is a marvellous testament to Mr Kennedy's memory! He has managed to curb his natural inclination towards the fantastical and, in the main stick to the facts. Highly recommended.

Now, my own on-the-road accommodation story. It was a dark night, I was on my way from Campbeltown to Bute and my van broke down in the middle of nowhere. About a mile off the road I saw the welcoming glow of a lighted window. Braving the storm, I made my way towards the light, knocked on the door and waited.

Eventually a tall, strapping farmer came to the door, listened to my tale of woe and offered me a bed for the night. Only problem was he explained that he had three young daughters and I would have to share a room with one of them.... Thing is, when I get to this stage in the yarn, some wise guy always tells me he has heard it before....
