Very simply, there is something about dolphins.
Lovely little creatures.
We have news of the pod of 30 which decided to make friends with an RNLI crew. It’s a jolly gentle tale, but absolutely none the worse for that.
Continuing the warm and fluffy feel, we have the really rather nice story of the Military Tattoo performer who got down on one knee during a live performance (to propose, for the avoidance of doubt, not because he was tired of standing up).
His beloved a fellow performer somewhat spoilt the party by saying a categorical “no”.
In fact, she added, she would rather never see the chap again.
(She didn’t really. Or did she? You’ll have to get The Courier to find out…).
However, Saturday’s Courier is not all sweetness and light.
We also have the story of the cab driver who terrified passengers by driving along at up to 100mph. Ooft. I suppose it may have saved them some cash, but they still weren’t particularly grateful.
The driver himself is rather put out by the whole affair, insisting the police were simply picking on him.
You can make up your own mind by taking a taxi (careful now) down to your newsagent and picking up a copy.
Meanwhile, the UK Government is being told in no uncertain terms, to frack off. I’m paraphrasing, but it is certainly along those lines. It’s all about plans to drill beneath people’s houses for “unconventional” gas. Bit worrying for all of those afflicted with unconventional gas…
There is also yet more on this jolly controversial referendum business. Some people would really like Scotland to be independent, but others really want to keep the Union. What a bally furore! We have all the latest.
The weekend is traditionally a rather special time. In fact as far as a combination of two days goes, Saturday and Sunday is right up there among the very best of the week. Please do enjoy your weekend to the full by spending in the peerless company of The Courier. If you simply don’t fancy the prospect of reading words written down on a piece of paper, why not try our digital edition where they are written on a screen instead?
