Gone....

... and with this, gentle rubberneckers, we are off again towards Scotland........ we'll be back on the 15th of October.....

... that said, we're expecting quite a crowd here at The Compound for the annual get-together...... The Hysterics at Eric's, as some like to call it, is just around the corner........... and for all who haven't heard, it is the weekend of the 26th, 27th, and 28th of October........ if you'd like to come and visit and haven't been on the distribution lists, drop me a line and I will send you directions on where to find us....... if you aren't a serial killer, we'd be glad to have you over for a few games of billiards and some adult beverages....... if you ARE an internet nut job, well, we're all likely to be heavily armed......... so, you are warned........

...... I'm off.....

Lost...

... 6am in Ballater, Scotland and I have just boiled the kettle for a mug of coffee..... drinks, carry out dinner, and a marathon of keping awake until darkness fell yesterday and it was time for rest..... six hours of sleep, and the dawn is here early..... it is a cool, misty morning here - so very far removed from the steamy mornings we'd had lately in Tennessee... still, it is so nice to see the family all laughing, joking, and sloshing wine all over the place in celebration....

.... lunch has been booked at The Raemoir House Hotel for later today..... then we'll wander back to the lodge to digest and contemplate what's for dinner..... oh, AND to begin calling the airlines to find out where they lost The Missus' luggage.....

.... there is no adventure without a little adversity, eh?....

2012....

... and with that, Rubberneckers, I am off....... I shall studiously write - in better handwriting - more pages in my handly little travel journal.....

... off to the windswept shores of Scotland once again.......
