'Parcel of Rogues' and access tech

Hello. Just listened to the community news for Feb. The 'Parcel of Rogues' comment I made about hpr1700 was a Burns quote. I thought Dave might have picked up on that given where he lives.

Ken, if you send me your hat-size I'll send you a brown paper bag to put over your head while you dabble with the access tech us blind folks use.

It might have the double-benefit of drowning out your singing ;-p

Robert Burns

Hi Mike.

I'm afraid that Burns quotes are lost on me. It did seem like quite an apposite phrase nevertheless. I'm proud to be one of the "Parcel" :-)

Also in the parcel

I lived for nearly eight years just along the coast near Prestonpans, but I'm also in that parcel of rogues. My tongue-out smiley went wrong in the first comment thanks to an access tech fault that falsely reports some characters as being on the screen twice...when I deleted what I thought was an extra dash it was the colon in :-p

Comment #4 posted on 2015-03-02 22:02:31 by Dave Morriss

Fear and Lothian

You obviously absorbed more Scottish culture in your eight years than I have done in my thirty or more!

Your original smiley was fine. A semicolon dash p looked to me like a tongue-out wink.
