The people. I am pure mad about the people here.  They are really friendly.


What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened in Dumfries?

I love the story that Billy Connolly tells when he played the Drill Hall.  It is about the us having to give up all our up shoes when Bonnie Prince Charlie was marching to England.  I dunno why but I have this vision of Bonnie Prince Charlie wearing ma wee sisters stilletos.  Pure funny that!
