I forgot to mention when I was with the Sheriff the other day, how immaculately dressed he always is. On this day, he was wearing the most beautiful blue Vicuna coat, and a broad-brimmed green hat which made him look not only distinguished but also rich and powerful, if a touch gay.
I, of course, was in my usual scruff order, topped with an old off-green corduroy coat and brown bunnet*.
As we walked down the street, a court official was walking towards us.
" 'Morning Sheriff. I see you're taking one of your customers to the jail yersel' ".
* bunnet = Scot's slang for a flat hat = bonnet
