Happy 250th Birthday Rabbie!

Jacqueline, Pencil on paper, circa 1975

"My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June :
My love is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I :
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun :
And I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel a while !
And I will come again, my love,
Thou’ it were ten thousand mile."

Happy 250th birthday Rabbie!

It also happens to be my mothers birthday, even though she's gone these past 20 years.

I didnae hear a single piper the nicht! But I did hae a wee dram and I may have recited "wee co'erin' tim'rous beastie..."

Aye dinah..."The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men,
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!"

Ah'm jist thinkin' that you are worthy o' my "Blog Scot Award" wi' this brave attempt at the vernacular!
