The Scot's are so tight with their money. I was adopted and my adopted
father was Scotish and it was a miracle if I could get a dime from him
as a kid. Irish party eh? I can go for that but we will have my
Daughter in law, 2 granddaughters but you said the party was Sunday
night? We wont have the kids then. I will definitly be there and am
looking forward to seeing you. bye, V.Kate PS what is Chrandles email?
