All well in Crianlarich – visiting Aunty Elma a lady who always looks after RAF MRT.

On my way back from the deep South from a good trip with old pals I drove to see Aunty Elma at Crianlarich. My old mountaineering mates tell me I need to post cheery posts. Elma has looked after many of us over the years on our visits to Crianlarich. She is a wonderful person who looks after RAF Mountain Rescue. Her wee house has always been a haven for many.

She was in great form and as usual had a wonderful spread of homemade cakes, Soda Scones and fresh pancakes.

I got all the updates on everyone and many will be glad to know she is in good health. She loves her letters, cards, photos of the families and phone calls so please keep them coming. It was raining as I arrived but a rainbow came out as I left so fitting. It is a place of memories her wee house to many.

Just for me!!!

How many stores have been told here by all who had tea, soup and cakes after a call out at Elma’s. I wonder how many did she fit into her wee house?

Elma had always been there for us giving us advice in all things and often telling us things that we needed to know. I got many rollockings here in the past.

So as we start to move about again if you can give Elma a call and drop in and see her.

She sends her love to all as always. you are all her bairns. So get writing or give her a phone she loves hearing about her Mountain Rescue Family.

Stay well and happy.
