Here’s a bottle and an honest friend!
What wad ye wish for mair, man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o’ care, man?
Robert Burns, A Bottle and a Friend.
Simkins celebrated the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns last week in the usual fashion – with haggis, poetry and liberal amounts of whisky.
Many thanks to all those attended (especially those in kilts), all of whom made the event a great success. And a special thanks to Hugh Gray for coming all the way from Tennessee to address the haggis in rousing style … if ye wish her gratefu’ prayer, Gie her a haggis!
