You might it be wondering why it is called Scotch Corner, when it really is not so close to Scotland.
Or you might be wondering what Gail and I were doing on the A66 in North Yorkshire in the middle of the week when we should be in Aberdeen.
Well I can answer the second point. I'm sad to report that Human Granny has been admitted to hospital in Nottingham and is not very well at all, so Gail and I have made an unscheduled emergency trip South.
Gail says my readers will understand if this blog is quieter than usual while we focus our attention on HGY.
