Destination: Edinburgh Monday, Sep 1 2008 

31 August 2008
For the past 15 years (or so), Marita Beth and I have hosted an ever-growing Scottish Hogmanay party at our house for New Year’s Eve. Many years ago, we started planning to be in Scotland and attend the Hogmanay in Edinburgh some year. The 15th anniversary seemed likely and appropriate, so we chose this year. There were concerns with the weakening US economy and the skyrocketing gas prices and the spectre of potential layoffs at my company. However, it seems that with the gas prices dropping, and my job security seemingly ok, we are moving forward with those plans. So, come late December, I will be in my favourite big city in the world, Edinburgh
Edinburgh
If you’re in Edinburgh for the ring-in of the New Year, come join us.
Hogmanay, here we come.
Cheers.

Since MB has been gone, we stay in touch through these means. It gives the other insight into the day. MB recently requested that I provide a photo of both dogs together since I’ve recently posted on each dog separately. I’m not sure this is what she had in mind, but it’s what she gets.

The Next Two Monday, Sep 1 2008

I love to read. Lately, I’ve not been able to read as much as I used to because of the headaches that it caused. With my new glasses, it seems that that’s not nearly the issue it used to be, so I’m trying to read more & more on a day-to-day basis. I have a book, just over 1000 pages, that I’ve been reading two to three pages a night for just about a year. As of late, I’ve picked up the pace because it doesn’t pain me to read so much anymore. I hope to finish it in the next day or two. And, I’ve already picked out the replacement(s).
The Next Two
I’ve had my eye on these books since I first heard about Farthing two years ago. Now, I’ll get to read them.
Cheers.
