I would like to thank everyone who has sent me good wishes and wished Jack, my westie and meeter and greeter, all the best after his operation. Poor Jack suffered a complete rupture of his cruciate ligament in his left leg and underwent TPLO in August. Happily he is making a good recovery and I am hoping he will be signed off at St Monans next month. He is such a lucky chap having wellwishers from all over the world. Thank you, folks.
The autumn season has kicked off with the Biggar Little Festival and the programme runs from the 14-29 October and is getting larger and more interesting with every passing year. If you are in Biggar this month perhaps you will stay a little longer and enjoy aspects of the Festival. Remember Biggar Little Festival is an annual event so you can pop it into your diary for next year, too.
