One of Our Earlier Committees (Expand pics)
A Rousing Tune
Almost everyone on our Committee has a title and a worthy job to go with it. Sadly not I. My colleagues have bestowed on my person a rag bag compendium of tasks, the most important of which is the choosing of a Theme Song for our group. I have been lobbied by factions supporting "The hills are alive"etc: how ghastly! Then through the open window of Meelmore Lodge wafted "I would walk 500 miles" and I thought : this could be the one. But our Equality Sub-Committee has knocked it on the head as irredeemably sexist: I suspect that they may have a point on this occasion. Such a pity! What a rousing piece!
"When I wake up yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When I go out yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

If I get drunk yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door"

Which begs the question: what does it mean "to haver". Actually it is Scottish slang for "blathering incoherently".

Tonelagee NE Top: Barely recognisable as a separate top
Colin Murphy 2 hours ago.
This is a handy one to bag on the way to Tonelagee, but it is so nondescript that many a walker has by-passed it without realising it is a top in itself. The summit is a broad, grassy area with no...
