    I remember that day 8 years ago. A bright eyed and innocent, half scared, half goofy kid dressed in a funny shirt joined us.

    And look what he has become today. Before much longer he will be cussing, drinking and hanging out with all sorts of riffraff.

    Well done Bill. I know that we did not start off too well at the beginning, but once we actually understood our different versions of English and in doing so, understood clearly that points of view can differ and not just on kilt matters, quite markedly sometimes from one side of the Atlantic to the other, then I would like to think that we have got on pretty well. I am proud, even though we have not met, to know you.

    Likewise, Jock. Any early problems long forgotten. You're on the list of folks I want to meet in person should I be able to return some day.
