Writers Retreating

So, some writer chums spent a very enjoyable weekend, eating, drinking and doing a spot of writing. The sun shone and the muse skipped merrily among us. And here is the pictorial evidence...





Russbourgh House - writers recline






"So, I said to Heaney - 'Oi Heaney, yur shite!'"



"...that's when he hit me - a real nasty one to my jaw, here..."





Unhappy subject.




Queen of the picnic - yummy!!




"What do you think? Its brilliant, no?"



Just a bit higher and I can cog the answers...



"So, I said, a Ferrari, and maybe 50k - then I might consider the Oxford Professor of Poetry job.."



Not drinking but working.


"I say old chum, you're a jolly fine writer..." "Oh, why thank you old sport..."




"You think you've a chance of winning with that short story!"



"If he says 'f**k' one more time I'm elbowing him in the goolies"





Top of the world ma, top of the world...



Writers attempting to be inspired by the beauty around them


Included here are a three time Henessey nominee, Hennessey winner, Jonathan Swift winner, etc, etc... hard to believe...

Gee thanks everyone, as my father used to say, 'you're a comedian'.. hmmm.. or was that 'you're a joke' ? hmmmmm......

TFE, no, no, it wasn't this 'sunshine' that you speak of, whatever that is, no it was a great big ball of ice floating above us that reflected back of our frozen breath vapour that makes it all look bright - it was 30 below all weekend...

Uisce - been sent.
