Default Happy St Andrew's Day

To all Scots and Scottish ex pats out there, Happy St Andrews day to you all. No, I won't be eating haggis later, (can't stand the stuff) but I might have a whisky. There is just to much fuss about St Patricks day here so I thought I had better give Scotland's patron saint a mention.

Not a lot of peole know that. As good an excuse to have a nip as I have had in a long time. Not that I need one.

Already have the Saltire out on the balcony - 100% sure none of the Americans around here will know what it is though!

Happy St Andrews day to you all!

I've had that and I've also been asked if I'm a Packers fan.

When we moved over I put a Saltire sticker on the back of our other car. Shortly afterwards, somebody rear ended us. I guess they thought the x was a target .

Happy St Andrews Day y'all.
