A Blithe And Cantie Burns Nichte To Ye All!

Darrell and I did enquire as to whether the village Tesco Express would be stocking any Haggis in preparation for Burns Nichte tonight, but we were sadly informed that there was no call for Haggi(s) in “dees dem parts” …………  
…….. However this was music to Nigel’s ears, as he had been robustly behesting that we should really be mostly piping in bonny wee bowls of old fashioned Scott’s Porage Oats,  in ample sufficiency …. in celebration of Mahogmoney Burns Nichte …….. , after taking all the free porridge promotion in the school kitchen very much to his heart.
…… which we will follow by a further ample sufficiency of cheese oat cakes, our current savoury biscuit of choice, after saying our version of The Selkirk Grace ……..
Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae porage and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.

Happy Burns Night!

Did you hear about the Scotsman who washed his kilt? He couldn't do a fling with it.

The witty comments are flowing with all this porridge/haggis fun......manly kilted male on the Scott's box! are obviously well prepared for any Burns Night celebration....great poet though he may be.....sorry Robert Burns, don't think (know, actually) haggis and I would be compatible at all, in any size, shape, or form!.....Dianne
