A fine day in Banchory

What a surprise to see this Coach and Horses, doing the Balmoral to Aberdeen run once again. It is a two day trip by this Coach to cover the distance on Modern roads. What must it have been like on the original carting roads.

For a small fee people may enjoy this historic run for a few miles at a go,

So not only did I see the Coach but got a real bargain as well.

I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only years later.
I don’t have to go to school or work.
I get an allowance (pensions).
I have my own pad.
I don’t have a curfew.
I have a driver’s license and my own car.
I have ID that gets me into bars and the Beer Store.
The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant.
And I don’t have acne.
Life is great.
