    My meetings with Hamish

    I have had the honor to meet Hamish three times.

    The first was during his Holiday to Canada in 2006.

    This is one of my favorite photos of Hamish.


    My shop was graced by a visit from Hamish along with MacMan, David, & Raphael.




    The second was during his Holiday to Palm Springs, CA in 2008.

    Here all who have gathered to have the pleasure of meeting Hamish pose outside the restaurant before dinner.



    The third time I met my friend Ham was during my Holiday to the UK in 2009.
    Hamish was kind enough to host my wife Bobbie and I at his home in Storrington.

    I have never met a kinder, more genteel man in my life.


    Ham and his trusty sidekick "Tri" prepare for yet another memorable photo shoot.








    If there is one photo that I hope will convey my feelings towards my friend I hope this will show all the regard I have for Hamish.

    Yes indeed I have! I spent a very pleasent hour with Hamish and Jim at the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge, there was a picture published here recording the event. He is not only a legend(a modest one), he is also an absolute gentleman with a wonderful sense of humour.I am dismayed that Hamish has been under the weather and I have no doubts that that sense of humour of his will help see him through these tough times that he has had to endure.

    You sure that's a camera? Looks more like a shrink-ray to me!

    I first met Hamish in summer 2006. This is a photo which Hamish posted at the time.

    Subsequently I have been fortunate to meet with the Kilted Legend in person twice at Harpenden Highland Gathering

    and at least twice at Ferintosh Guest House Dumfries.
    I wish our friend Hamish all the best and a speedy recovery.

    That's me and Anna in the background! And Steve, I totally agree with your statement. Hamish would be a wonderful man even if he never graced a kilt!

    I've not had the pleasure of meeting Hamish in person, but am honoured to count him amongst my friends here on XMarksTheScot. I wish Hamish a continued and speedy recovery.
