The 51st State?
When I asked for my latest amazon order to be delivered to the new address on Lewis, they very kindly asked if I would prefer to pay in US dollars, that being (as they imagined) my home currency. Have I been out of contact so long that I have missed something? Have Mr Cameron and Mr Obama come to some sort of arrangement , in which the Outer Hebrides is the price? What is Mr Salmond doing abut it - does he even know? Hmmmm....
Anyway - quick post as we are back down in the Central belt for K's birthday and various appointments and stuff. Back up on the early ferry tomorrow - leaving the house at 4 am to be in time!! We should have out broadband on by the end of next week, so I will be live from Lewis then. (Assuming there have been no border checkpoints put up in the last few days)
Wondering about a change of name for the blog to fit in with the island, crofting type life. Not usre, really, because I am still an interrupted gardener - different things to distract me now.
