Mr Crofter Sir, 'im of the committees etc and hired hand Chris look out at Eric and pals on the moor.
Did I tell you about the big cattle roundup?
No, well if you are seated we'll begin.
The cattle got out. When I say 'the cattle' I mean four of the cattle got out. They were meant to be enjoying the delights of the Glen field that The Crofter uses from time to time but Eric and his pals were not too keen on that at all. So, almost every day they went walkabout but in the evening went back again aided by a homesteader nearby who kindly opened the gate to let them back in.
Since they must have heard about the new baby Emily, they decided to come all the way 'home'. Only when they got to the village, the road stopped them. they were not too keen on that at all.
