As many of you will remember, David and Glenna (Earle) celebrated 50 years of Happiness, and to top it off, they spent 8 Days in Scotland!!
Glenna Speaks: A short trip for only a week to Scotland and although we went about our plans, the weather was rather grey for most of the week. Still a wonderful place to visit, in spite of the misty, moisty weather.
We managed to see a good part of both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Also worked in 3 days in the Livingston area where David’s family resides. We reunited with several of his cousins who took us all over the place. They are a fun-loving group and we laughed and ate and talked a lot. They still laugh at me trying to interpret the language! When I was asked if you “goat tea” which is what I heard, I then said I have never had “goat tea”. What is it like? As they went into fits of laughter, they explained that they were asking “have you got tea?” Scottish dialect is difficult for me!
Glenna sent along 10 pix. I will now share them with you:
There is a huge monument to Sir Walter Scott on Prince’s St in Edinburgh. Thought this is one of his better quotes! (Above)
