Rally - Friends



Martin Forrest was over in Americky (just to the west of Ireland) the other week and was hoping to keep up to date with news from the RSAC Scottish Rally on various websites, especially about his regular driver, one Keith Morris Esq. Entered at number 37, Martin couldn't find Keith's name on any of the interim or final results, or even the list of retirements. Even more puzzling, he couldn't find his name on the Start List.

So when he got back he investigated, only to find that Keith has taken up a new and hopefully very temporary residence in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary. Apparently Keith had a pretty serious accident on the A9 between Aviemore and Inverness on the Monday before the rally from whence he was taken initially to Raigmore and then helicoptered to ARI.

Earlier this week Martin popped in to see Keith who was apparently sitting up and talking sense. That was unusual, but Martin noted that he had spent a couple of nights on strong morphine! Keith is hoping to get out soon, but methinks the medics have other ideas due to a varied selection of broken bones and a punctured lung.

In the meantime, his address is Ward 504 in the ARI. Get well soon Keith, your cheerful grumpiness will be sorely missed in the woods.
