    Cool The Saltire has arrived!

    I am pleased to report the arrival of the XMTSAS Saltire to Springfield, Missouri this afternoon, after a short delay in US Customs -- no doubt due to the "Haggis & Whisky stains" in the gondola! :mrgreen:

    I arrived home after work to find the Saltire in the library:



    Where it was being welcomed by my wee Corporal-Piper Jock McGraw of the Forty-Twa:



    So, following the ancient right of Highland hospitality, I offered the wee airship a dram, but it requested a German brew instead -- evidently it aquired a taste for it whilst in Munich with A_Hay!



    Thankfully, I had one bottle of Spaten Optimator left!

    The wee ship is very tired after its trans-Atlantic crossing, so we'll finish the bottle and then turn-in for the evening. Who knows what adventure awaits in the Ozarks for the :blimp:

    Mair tae follow...in the meantime, guid nicht!

    Yours aye,

    Todd

    Very good, Todd!

    As a good escort, you should make sure that :blimp: has an opportunity to visit the Highland Games in Phoenix next weekend!

    Alas, Frank, the wee ship will be in St. Louis at a "stag" Burns Supper...but you never know where she'll turn up next!

    Three Burns Night Suppers!

    That's a heck of record for her first "Burns Season"

    Glad to see her in such experienced hands*

    Cheers

    Don't forget, this is the home base for airships, as in Goodyear.

    My daughter has been sick today, so not much chance of the Saltire getting out and seeing the sights. However, we'll try to make it out tomorrow.
