This is where Karen is taking Nancy and me tomorrow!! Looks like fun to me!!! Karen is taking folding chairs for us and will help us. Kelly has to work tomorrow so Karen is doing this. Since my kids on their Dads side are Scottish I think they will love this!! We will have to find a place that is not to sunny for Nancy because of some of her medicine's she takes says, Do not get in the Sun!

I tried to get out today and visit each one of you but if I didn't make it to your blog I will a little later!!

You and Nancy are going to have FUN! Our city hosted the Highland Games many years ago and I went several times. It is always an enjoyable outing.

Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my post. I have told a little more about Brandon in tonight's post if you have time to drop by.

Have a safe and fun day.

We just had our St. Pat's day parade here in Savannah and of course lots and lots of bagpipes. Plus for Easter one man came out to our church. Our church is located on a big lake. He stood by the lake and played.."Amazing Grace". I heard it was wonderful. i was inside helping.
don't worry about getting around to visit me. I am just glad that you are back on line
Have fun..Sandy
