Gail and I have been debating the merits of a well known aspect of summer weather in Aberdeen.
I guess if you want to make something sound better than it is you give it a fancy name. You know, like bin men being environmental hygiene operatives....
So people in the east of Scotland have a special word for coastal fog. The call it 'haar'.
We had a bad dose of haar when we took our visitors to Dunnottar Castle last week.
Gail was going on about it all being so atmospheric, the ruined grey stone buildings looming in the swirling mists.
But I think you can tell that the boys weren't too impressed.
And small wonder. You might remember I went there as a young pup with Gail's friend Helen. On a sunny day.
And Hamish too enjoyed fine weather for his visit. (Click here for his full report).
But talking of mists, oh deary me, Gail is getting all misty eyed looking at those pictures of Hamish. I'd better stop right now, and go and give her a lick and a cuddle.
