Another Burn's Lunch

   The storm held off until the drive home but made for a rather slippery ride. I think it has stopped now but I will wait until tomorrow to shovel the driveway.  

   You can probably tell that in my neck of the woods we take Rabbie Burn's birthday seriously. Today a local church put on a lovely lunch to which we were invited to "dance for our dinner" (and it was a tasty one!). It came complete with the Piping in of the haggis, the Selkirk Grace, Toast to the lassies, followed by the toast to the laddies and, after the dancing, a Scottish sing-a-long. I will leave you with the Selkirk Grace.

"Some hae meat but canna eat
Some wad eat that want it
But we hae meat and we can eat
Sae may the Lord be thankit."
