Apologies - I realised after I had posted that it was the wrong word over here. An "Artic" is the same as a "Semi" ie a big truck. It is, of course, short for "articulated". A haggis is quite different and generally does not give rise to near death experiences, though I understnd that there have been occasional shooting accidents during the haggis hunting season.....
Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.
I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
