We’re Back Up There!

The Fatdog Broadcasting Corporation is proud to announce a bit of a coup.  Oh yes.  You probably thought that hillwalking had departed “Where The Fatdog Walks” for good but we have worked frantically behind the scenes to ensure you will not miss out on those mountain top views.  Oh no.

It gives me great pleasure to announce a possible collaboration between ourselves and that stalwart of the mountain trails, that intrepid warrior of the high tops, that incredible expert in the art of…falling down.  YES!  MrP has agreed to take on the role of  Mountain Liaison Correspondent bringing to you, the reader, tales of unspeakable hardship, days alone in the wild and smelly socks.

MrP is a very popular and highly successful poster on Scottishhills.com and will continue in that role.  Here at The Fatdog Broadcasting Corporation our experienced production team will work unstintingly to deliver those magnificent stories in keeping with our ethos –  “never knowingly on the wall” (thanks for that one Andy).

In a moment of madness MrP has handed over all editorial content.  The plan is that I will provide the necessary framework and appropriate narration for his reports whereas The Fatdog will be responsible for editing censorship, spelling and Bonio counting (“who the hell put that in the announcement?”).  There are, however, a number of contractual matters to sort out before production begins.  The main stumbling block at the minute is the provision of private health care and a bed in a rather fetching nursing home on the shores of Lake Garda should he go downhill (quite literally) faster than anticipated.  So far we have agreed on a box of plasters.

However this is a small matter and we shouldn’t let that spoil the moment.

I hope you’ll enjoy the labours of this particular enterprise. I know we here at The Fatdog Broadcasting Corporation are absolutely thrilled at the prospect of working with MrP again and will begin production on his Conquest of the Corbetts as soon as contracts are signed.

“Thank God that’s over…who writes this bullshit anyway?”  “We’re still on air?”  “Oh bollocks!”

    1. The blogging equivalent of car crash television I fear. Still the prospect of blood (thankfully not mine) is always good for viewing figures. 😀

    1. No problems Alan 😀 .

      Feel free. Just remember dirt sticks. All I have to do is visit a few forums, mention one Alan Sloman in connection with clandestine wind farm purchase and… Happy commenting 😀

  1. I’m feeling a warm glow of pride. I need a slogan for my own labour of love now.

    My marketing and slogan services are chargeable – mind you I don’t want to be “edited” by the Fatdog. Nasty, leave a stain that won’t wash out.

    1. And well deserved too Andy. An excellent little slogan. 😀 Bet you’re now thinking “Wish I’d used that one for my blog!”

      Editing by The Fatdog is a complex process in which she’ll very carefully study the text, selecting certain passages and discarding those she doesn’t like. She will then eat the ones she does. Unfortunately this gives us a wee bit of a problem with script continuity. 😦

    1. Hi Tessa 😀

      Proving an interesting wee project trying to get the balance right. It would be good to put it on Shills – but it wouldn’t sit well in any of the forums. The way it’s currently written it would only work here.

Now it's your turn...
