Bonnie Banks and Bonnie Braes

If you haven't already noticed that I'm over in Scotland for a wee visit to celebrate my girl, Gabbi's, birthday, then hie yourself over to Petey's Playhouse for a look see.

And here are the words to a song I'll be singing when we all pull up to Beagle Land!!! It's kind of a sad song for broken-hearted lovers -- but since Gabbi and I live so far apart, there's always a bit of nostalgia in our hearts.

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond.
Where me and my true love were ever wont to gae
On the bonnie, bonnie banks O' Loch Lomond.

O ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road,
An' I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks O' Loch Lomond.

'Twas there that we parted in yon shady glen,
On the steep, steep side O' Ben Lomon',
Where in purple hue the Hieland hills we view,
An' the moon comin' out in the gloamin'

The wee birdies sing and the wild flow'rs spring,
And in sunshine the waters are sleepin';
But the broken heart it kens nae second spring,
Tho' the waefu' may cease frae their greetin'.

Oh well that is a cheery song!!! You and your true love are meeting and will meet again!!
We are happy to be travelling with you!
Bailey and I felt weak at the knees when we saw all you male dogs in your golfing gear.
We cant wait for the party!!!

Ah, Jakie, you put a wee tear in me eye. Perhaps we'll need to share a wee dram or two before we burst into song for our lady loves!

Your pal,

Upon Beagleland we are goin' ta stand, All of us hip deep in the heather. And me and my dog pals a courtin' we will go, in the shade of the lovely Loch Lomon'

Now I've got my Gabbi and Petey his Rose, and Eric's providin the transport. We'll hide from the Aunties and share a tiny dram, and we're hopin the girrrls don't wear panties.

And Marvin will join us and so will Lacie Beast and we won't care so much 'bout the weather, Til Hamish the scottie serves his Haggis feast then we'll all return home to get better.
