Time....

.... planning is currently afoot via telephone in the living room..... that yearly, traditional international call, ladies and gentlemen..... and if my tender ears do not deceive me, the current wind is blowing towards departing Tennessee on the 6th of May and arriving at our snug Grampian chalet after lunchtime (local) on the 7th of May.... tis a Wednesday, I do believe...... which means that we'll only have four days at The World's Smallest Hilton before heading back down the mountain to the seaside for the remaining six days....

... during those six days, I've requested only two things from the "vacation planners".... number 1 - the highest priority - is that I be allowed to lunch at least two consecutive days at 'Candy's" in Montrose.... a tiny, friendly, and extremely generous little hole-in-the-wall sandwich shop located just near where the highstreet narrows..... they do a Cajun chicken baguette that will curl your hair..... and their bacon baguettes are legendary.... my taste buds literally dream of those bacon (British bacon, not American bacon), cheddar, onion, and mayo works of art at LEAST twice a month.....

... secondly, I wish to visit Melrose Abbey - down in the Scottish Borders region..... I recently read about how the Black Douglas died while locked in battle with the Saracens as he attempted to take Robert the Bruce's heart to Jerusalem for burial..... and how the Bruce's heart was carried back from southern Spain and buried under the altar at Melrose Abbey..... that's just plain old-school hardcore, people, I don't care who you are...... and I want to walk the same grounds as those guys in the 1300s...... maybe even while munching on a luxurious treat from Candy's sandwich Shoppe......

..... perhaps I can persuade the Powers That Be that we should visit the location in Switzerland this autumn where an Irishman busted a cap in one of my GGGGGGGGGGrandpas back in 1664..... that'd be kinda interesting......

Bullshit So Far

Very cool. I can't even get a vacation planned for 5 days in a row - yet you do this trip every year! I'm amazed. (maybe I need those vacay planners to get my husband to commit to some time off) LOL. I know you'll have a terrific time.

Lausanne? I have been there but much prefer St Gallen..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Gallen...
used to be a beautiful city and the surrounding country side the epitome of peace. I spent several different afternoons sipping beer or wine on the bank of a rippling brook watching Brown Swiss cattle on the other side watch me
