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?
