    Conyers, GA Burns Supper

    It's time for our 6th annual Great SEKS Burns Supper schedule--yes, it will be January 28, 2012 at the Celtic Tavern. It's a Saturday, so you can plan your weekend around it, you know, travel time, motels, sleeping in the next day.

    Seating is limited to about 35 or so; I hope the regulars can get their reservation in soon after January 1 so we can plan the total outting.

    So far, we are planning on a return of Turpin and our own, lovely Miss Hailey for their performances, and Scot Aday will deliver the Selkirk Grace, but the other parts of the program are open. Please contact me if you would like to do anything in particular--recitation or reading of a favorite poem is always welcome. (I have several books of poems, or you can bring your own.)

    There'll be an early gathering to quaff a wee dram (or three)/beer/etc., tell a few liies, reive some cattle, admire the various kilts, hear the pipes, and generally discuss important issues--you know, weather, pretty girls, kilt hose, lassies, whisky, women, etc. (It's actually very kid/family friendly, both the gathering and the tavern, but some of us do appreciate lassies. )

    Put it on your calendars and let me hear from you soon. Cost is the same as last year--$20--which includes your meal (fresh haggis, etc.), one shot to toast the haggis, and entertainment. (The entertainment is actually free, but, well, you know.)

    With the topics of conversation like those , it sounds like an event that I ought to attend! Sadly it is not to be. Now then Jim, what is this silly idea of living thousands of miles from Scotland? You know full well these sort of events should be held near, well, um, ah , OK, how about Inverness-shire?

    Sorry I can't join you this year. I enjoyed it when I did a couple of years ago. Unfortunately that is the day of the Chinese New Year Celebration here at work, and I'm in charge of the event.

    I think Jock should make the trek. I'll pop for dinner and the first round. And, yes, you would definitely enjuou the evening. I do happen to know that DixieCat is making the trip.

    I'll be there. Haley will be traveling from college in Milledgeville with her S.O., so that makes three.

    Looking forward eagerly to Miss Holly's bread pudding. None better.

    Looks like the Comfort Inn is reasonably close and has decent reviews. Got any better suggestions?

    I would recommend the Jameson; it's very close--almost crawling distance--easily accessible, and I've heard only good things. There's also the La Quinta Inn which is only about a 1/2 block up the road.

    It looks as if I will be there. Looking forward to seeing all the old faces and some new ones. Any chance for vegetarian haggis this year?

    Gilmore! You're back! Good to see you after a long absence.
