Deep in the Galloway Forest, George and Sam were doing a bit of wildlife spotting.
They’d seen a jay walking and a peckish woodpecker, when Sam who’s always thought of himself as King of the Tufties, spotted something even tuftier.
“Look” cried the crestfallen Sam – “there’s a ruby with the tuftiest ears I’ve ever seen – I’ll no longer be top tufty”. “Don't talk nuts” barked George, at which the little tufty hightailed it away.
|Years ago when I was a young snapperwhipper, we had the decorator here, and one day I found his lunch box. I opened the lid and there were his sandwiches (known as "snap" round here) and I ate the lot. When he found what I'd done he shouted "hey he's eaten my snap", and so my exploit became known as "The Great Snap Heist". Now I'm a senior citizen, the decorator thought I wouldn't see his snap box – my old peepers not being good, but he was wrong. I found his snap again, just like the old days and set about opening the box. Sam looked on in awe – whilst Dad snapped the master in action for posterity!!|
