:-P Home to Scotland

We arrived in Scotland yesterday and immediately went to see our chief, Lord Elgin, to pay our respects. He and Lady Elgin welcomed us and told us of all the plans for the week to celebrate Bannockburn. Today we went to Edinburgh with our sons and daughter in law who are here too. It was great to see the sights with them and show them the history. We have seen little about the coming vote on independence. I am not sure what to expect while we are here. It will be interesting. Tomorrow it is Stirling and Bannockburn and a visit to the new Visitors Center. Can't wait. More later.

There are certain things that seem to go together; wind and rain, champagne and strawberries, tatties and neeps. The best is still Scotch and cigars. I wanted to make certain that you were aware of the invitation from the Crofts to their now annual cigar and scotch evening. The actual invitation is located on the front page of the Minnesota Scots website. [see June 2014 SNIM, page 2.]

Having attended this last year, I can assure you that it is a wonderful evening and that the different scotches make it worthwhile. There is something there that you have not tasted before.

Please consider joining us there!
