And I'm off!

I'll be in Scotland, thinking quiet thoughts, watching sheep graze, pulling up the zipper on my rain jacket, eating smoked salmon fro breakfast and thinking nothing of having a dram of whisky when an occasion presents itself. Scotland -- where mosquitoes are replaced by midges, oatmeal by porridge, and where walking is constrained by no one,  limited only by the boggy turf.

I'll write next when I get there.


  1. So many people think of escaping the dog days of Wisconsin :) and points North.

    I look forward to your pastoral photos from Scotland.

    1. Shhh! Don't tell them about our mosquitoes! Just standing still to take those two morning photos was beyond unpleasant. But, it's a brief bug season and fall in Wisconsin is nearly always spectacular.

  2. Fans in Boulder county Colorado will miss daily updates about the wee lassie. That's the wee one who looks quite fetching in red!

    1. I miss that wee lassie as well! But, there is the joy of a reunion coming up in some ten odd days!


I welcome comments, but I will not publish submissions that insult or demean, or that are posted anonymously. I am sorry to lose commenting Ocean friends who are not registered, but I want to encourage readers to submit remarks only if they feel they can stand behind their words. I do not seek a free-for-all here. I like camaraderie far more than conflict.
