Book: The Auchencookie Chronicles by Allan Neilcategories: Book, Humour, Scotland, Mastermind, 'polis', Old Folks, Licensee, Lowland Scotland
Allan Neilabout this book: These chronicles are a whimsical account of the goings-on in Auchencookie, which I assert is a figment of my imagination, a small town in Southern #Scotland, which bears some aspects of similarity with my home town.
Many of the local characters make appearances, including the notorious and extended McGurk family and some of the residents of the local rest home, together with the lovable #Polis - Wee Pundy Gloag and his less popular colleague, PC Wladislaw Ziemniak. There is a wistful account of a visit by royalty to that rest home and the book is rounded off with the hilarious tale of a local licensee's efforts at staging a version of the well-known TV quiz show, #'Mastermind'
To aid readers who are not from the area, I have included the 'Auchencookie Dictionary', a glossary of some words and terms that might help to ease such readers through the narratives. Just for information, the book contains not much 'hanky. and a lot less 'panky' - just my sense of humour, folks!
