With all the effort I have put in over the last few months on the Facebook page and the magazine, my hard, more J Jonah Jamieson than Lou Grant, editor in chief Robert Marshall has granted me some time off. So today I am off to sunnier skies . . . no not England but to Greece and the island of Kos. My bags are packed, mainly with small cash notes and my Saltire budgie smugglers are all set to be modelled on the beaches of Mastihari.

Unfortunately this means I won’t be posting any articles and with such luminaries as Paul Lambert, Neil McCann, Bobby Murdoch and Ronnie McKinnon all having birthdays they will be missed out too. I am most disappointed in not being able to revisit Stewart Kennedy’s Scotland career. Unbeaten in four games and then pumped severely at Wembley.

In the meantime to keep you going with daily input from ourselves, why don’t you purchase yourself a copy of issue 3 of the Scotland Epistles magazine and read an article a day and that will keep you going. Although, I am on holiday Robert will be posting out any copies bought on ebay in the meantime.
Here’s a sample of some the feedback from ebay so far;(Disclaimer: some of these might not be true)

“I’ve been following Scotland home and away for the last twenty years and reading this has been about the only fun time I can remember.”

“Excellent item, arrived as described. Trade with confidence.”

“The best thing I have read since Janet and John visit the STD clinic (It’s hard growing up in an inner city school)”

“A must for any Scotland fan . . . The best magazine there is.”

“If my house was on fire this and my vintage scud books would be the things I would save.”.

“Nice item well packaged happy Buyer”

“ 9 out of ten readers agree that the Scotland Epistles, Bullshit and Thistles is more than a mouthful.”

So thanks to all who have bought it and also to everyone’s help in getting us up to 300 plus likes and please keep spreading the word.
