    Alex: Nothing shameless about it. I missed your original post. Thanks.

    I wish I could go. I would love to tour the area around Hawick. But, I am looking forward to some Festival and reiver reveler pictures.

    Have you seen the "Clans of Scotland" episode that featured the Armstrongs and the Border Reivers? If so, what did you think of it?

    I changed my signature. The old one was too ridiculous.

    If only I could. Each year is gonna be the year; soon it will be. Though reading this, I realize it's the same weekend
    as the Niel Gow Fiddle Festival in Dunkeld/Birnam. Both fabulous weekends for any who can, and being in Scotland
    at the right time, and missing either would be painful.
