Malcolm and a Quick Pint

It was a great joy to meet another Catholic blogger last week. Malcolm of Cally's Kitchen was in Edinburgh and was going to the Scotland vs Italy game at Murrayfield. I managed to get a message via his blog and we arranged to meet at the War Memorial at half time.

Alas, he thought the clock was the War Memorial (or at least he was badly advised by Scots up to their knavish tricks, tripping up an innocent Englishman abroad).

Thankfully, because I have new specs (and because Malcolm is so very tall and the Scotslady's coat was so salmon pink) I could make them out across the assorted drunks. We had a very nice pint of Belhaven and an all to brief chat. There was a chance however to toast Fr Finigan and even express a few words of Christian sympathy for the poor, luckless Ms Curti (is she back at work yet?)

All too brief the stands beckoned for the second half. I hope young Malcolm had a good time in Auld Reekie.

Scotland won, 26-6, by the way.

Here's to the next meeting. I have a conference to attend later in the year in central London.

Anyone fancy a pint?

Oooooooooooh, you'd better make sure you don't sneak along to London without informing me! I will get to hear, and it won't be pretty!

It was good to see you too. It would be great to see you again!

God bless Fr. Finigan and the Tablet for letting us see what a Top Bloke he is.
