Happy Birthday Rabbie



Evening, we have had a busy day today. Been to Perth as we usually do on Wednesday.  Had an appointment with the optician for some new glasses.  I wear Varifocals but find them annoying on the computer as you have to hold your head back so as I did not need a change this time I am having a pair just for reading and the PC. Lovely cold dry day here today much brighter than of late. Today being Burns Night (a very popular event up here in Scotland) whilst shopping we acquired the traditional Haggis which we shall have tonight along with neeps and tatties a truly fine supper especially when accompanied by a fine single Malt.  Of all the works that Burns wrote and there are very many to my way of thinking one of the finest lines is

 'O wad some pow'r the giftie gie us 

To see oursels as others see us'                              


from To a Louse.  on seeing one on a lady's bonnet at church.

       Hope you all have a good Burns night.       Love,

Hi Joan,  I hope you have a lovely evening.  I have a pair of glasses for the PC, a pair for close reading and another pair for the PC once the other ones are no good!  Luckily, the optician made them to save me going back for an eye test for 3 years. The problem being that sometimes I wonder why it`s hard to read my book and of course, I have the wrong glasses! :o)
