Hi morena
We have talked on the phone but unfortunately still have not met,
Do you have plans to come to the CLA this year, it would really good to see there?
I personally could listen to your life encounters for hours

Great stuff Norman. I see you worked at Glen Lyon, is that the estate near Aberfeldy? If so can I ask when this was, as a friend of mine is the keeper there. He moved from near Rosehall to Glen Lyon about 8 years ago.

Cheers

Hi Skamalc,
Worked on the Wills Estate up near Killin. Many moons ago. Stags very visible until they checked their calendar. Happy memories of looking up the mountain towards Loch Rannoch and seeing this absolute forest of antlers. Days later they had legged it. Have hazy memories of a distillery near ??Aberfeldy.

Hi Malc,
The stalker was Jock Wilson. We kept in contact for years and then all of a sudden got a letter from his son to say dad been up on the hind cull had just come off the hill and suffered a fatal heart attack. Sadly missed as he was not a gentleman. Hard b*****

I admire your background. It just proves, if you want it, go get it. It`s there if you put your mind to it.
