NOT A WASTE
« on: April 19, 2008, 05:21:34 AM »
IT IS THE CUSTOM IN SCOTLAND, WHEN VISITING ANCESTORS GRAVES, TO LEAVE THEM A DRAM= A DRINK OF WHISKY. ON YOUR BEHALF I LEFT THEM A BOTTLE OF SINGLE MALT! HOPEFULLY THE PHOTIES WILL SHOW THIS.I LEFT IT ON THE OLDEST GRAVE I FOUND-1606- IN KELSO ABBEY.(THERE ARE OLDER GRAVES BUT THEY ARE ILLEGIBLE I HAD TO BE DIRECTED TO THIS ONE BY MARY LANGTON)SO MUCH IS THIS CUSTOM RESPECTED IN SCOTLAND; WHEN I RETURN THERE IN A FEW WEEKS TIME YOU AN GUARENTEE THE BOTTLE WILL STILL BE THERE.
 DOES ANYONE WANT TO TAKE BETS ITS STILL THERE OR NOT? YOU CAN BET IT IS!

I hope it will still be there. It would be nice to confirm integrity and honor still exists - On the other hand, knowing people like you show it's not.

Thank you on behalf of all of us!

MACTAVISH,

"ON YOUR BEHALF I LEFT THEM A BOTTLE OF SINGLE MALT!"

Thank you, You know you are highly esteemed by all of us, but it needs to be said again.

When we get this Thompson Clan thing off the ground, a large part of our success will be because you and Cathy have been huge supporters.

My best regards,
Booner
