“You’re telling me there would have been nothing left after he was finished.’

“I bet Lou down at that café had wished he’d never told Ron that he could order that Hungry Harris Mixed Grill free of charge. He has been down there three times last week.’

He says trade has picked up since he started to advertise the monster sized grill but I reckon Ronnie is eating his way through the profits.’

“Roger and Brenda drank two pots of tea, ate some Kellogg’s frosties, and a full English breakfast with toast they were stuffed.

They were about to check out at the reception when the hotel manager came over to them.

“Have you enjoyed your stay sir?’

“Very much so replied Roger.’

“that’s good because we have chosen you as our couple of the year and you have won a free weekend at the Hilton which you can use any week end until the end of next month. If I can just take your names and your address we will post you the voucher.

“Yes; it’s Mr and Mrs Strapp.’

And your first name sir?

“Jock; my father is a descendent of the famous Scottish family.

Ah that would be the McDonalds I believe.’

“No sir, it’s the Balls family; yes my great, great grandfather.

“I cannot say I’ve heard of them sir.’

Every one knows my family in Scotland sir.

What was his first name Sir?


“I see sir thank you, we will be in touch.’

“How Brenda kept a straight face when they were in the hotel beggared belief but once they got outside they both burst out laughing.

“Roger you are incorrigible.’

“When he said that he’d be in touch I nearly said who with the Balls.’

They went to the car park hand in hand and Roger opened the door for her and she slid in.’

“Enjoyed yourself love asked Roger.’

“It has to be the best night ever; one we certainly won’t forget.’
