Moving again....

... tomorrow we head off before the break of dawn... and in a bit we are heading up the street for some grilled lamb chops and a few drinks on our last evening here.... double-matured 16-year old Lagavulin will be involved as well... it should be excellent...

... much has happened over the past few days... I had lunch with two fine old friends in Brechin yesterday... and the day before we trekked up Glen Clova and had a fine meal at the Climbers Inn at the Clova Hotel.... last night, of course, was the Jazz Night at the Links Hotel.... Niki King and Marcus Ford played some soulful and romantic tunes for us after our meal...

... I had the pleasure of sitting directly in front of Ms. King - about eight feet away - as she sang... and she's a total babe, too.... goodness... beautiful AND talented... and Mr. Ford played one helluva mean guitar... the guy is a magician.... I bought their CD and they signed it for me... and will try to post a sample once I get back stateside...

... what a pleasant few weeks I've had...

... still, the time has come.... and I'll be going offline for the next few days as I will be making my long, slow way back to Tennessee via Amsterdam and New Jersey.... I will be posting more photos once I am settled...

... people, everyone should visit Scotland at least once in their lives.. I had the pleasure of living here for many years... and even with saying that, I am still awed by some of the sights you see around every corner.... do yourselves a favor... visit Scotland..

... anyway, I'm off.. y'all take care... I'll leave you with a photo of Glen Clova that I took two days ago....


... nice view, eh?... they don't call Scotland the "Big Country" for nothing....

Oh no. I think I missed you. I just realized you were off this week, I thought you had one more week!

I visited Scotland in '97 and those 4 days were too short, we had to move on to other spots. Great people.
I really like a place that spray paints their sheep!

It is a beautiful country indeed. I'd love to visit there again. Enjoy your remaining time there.

The BEST two New Year's Eve spent in my entire life were spent in Scotland!

I want to go!!!!!!!!
I've been to Spain, which I loved, but I want to see Scotland, and Ireland, and that place in Mexico where the Monarch butterflies gather...
