Irish scorcher torture.

July 27, 2014

Love the story coming out of Scotland, with (according to The  Advertiser) athletes in Glasgow succumbing to the heatwave. …with temperatures soaring into the low twenties!

Reminds me of the trip the Grumpies took a trip  to Ireland some years ago.

Knocking on the door of a small cottage advertising bed and breakfast we were greeted by a curvaceous colleen sporting a VERY nice line in scarlet bikinis.I asked the obvious question and got a quizzical stare. She had, she said, been standing in front of the open fridge all morning, trying to stay  cool. Surely we knew the country was in the grip of a heatwave?.

“But,” I said,” it’s only just edged into the twenties” .

“To be sure, I know that”, came the reply. “Why else would  the village store have run out entirely of sun-tan lotion…”
