I was once talking to a friend from Tyndrum, who mentioned that he was part of the voluntary fire brigade service there. I expressed some surprise by saying that I had not realized that he was involved with that. My friend then told me that the leader of the fire brigade was another guy who was actually known to me as a client.
‘How did he become the leader of the fire brigade?’ I asked in all my innocence.
‘He was the only one who had a tow bar on his car,’ was the perhaps inevitable Highland reply. I compared that with the qualifications no doubt needed by the leader of the fire service in, for example, New York.
