Lord Mayor’s Tales: 6 - CAPTION COMPETITION: Funny Going’s On

The Baron Courts are delighted to announce a Captions Competition, with a fine prize for the Winner who must suggest captions for the 10 photographs below excluding the two bouncers in yellow flak jackets, dark glasses and a (false?) moustache.

THE FIRST PRIZE is Complimentary Dinner for a Party of Four at The Gothenburg once re-opened. SECOND PRIZE is for a Party of Two

Entries no later than October 31st 2003 to Anne Taylor, The Gothenburg, 227/ 229 High Street, Prestonpans, East Lothian, Scotland EH 32 9BE - Phone 01875 819922

The dramatis personae are, if it helps:

Jane Bonnar pointing skyward; followed by the Rev. Robert Simpson and Lorraine Simpson with Dolphinstoun also looking skyward at Wintoun House.

Next Lady (Dorothy) Ogilvy who is with child brings up the rearguard on her husband’s tour; then the Baron Sergeant falls at the Lord Mayor’s feet as she strives to receive the City wall plaque into safe custody for Baron Courts.

Visitors from Armadale, West Lothian’s Gothenburg, next contemplate Swedish Heaven beer and the coffee pot option with Bill Robertson, the Gothenburg’s restorative builder.

Foot troubles for two Ladies indoors at Wintoun House and also for Willie Coull’s two sisters, Maggie Conn whose house wall is now a mural view, and a local friend, altogether on the Arts Festival bench on the beach.

Finally, Jane Bonnar is in action again with our muralist Andrew Crummy, and Prestoungrange looks like he’s had a tiring day. Then a veteran of the 1998 British Winter Beer Festival looks askance at so much Swedish bottled beer then averts his eyes to concentrate on the foods – quite rightly so for a Gothenburg pub of course.
