Unfortunately my camera is on its last legs and a lot of the other photos didn’t turn out (sorry, no photo of me doing the Address to the Haggis). All in all though, I think everyone had a good time. Here’s one last shot…of McJamie.

  1. What a fine table you set. I’ve never seen Joe play the pipes – after all these years! Nor have I seen Jamie in a kilt. Missed the legs though. Looks like a great ‘do’. Hope you had a good time.

  2. Looks like a party. We also were able to take part in a wonderful feast as pary of the Valley Claymore Society. Not quite as intimate as yours appear, however most were friends and very nice. There were aprox 80 people in attendance and we booked the entire restraunt at the Mid-Valley Motel in Middleton. The menu was pretty basic, roast beef, chappit tatties, and neeps. The Haggis was super excellent, we place our annual order with Pete’s Fruitic in Halifax and the receipe is actually very nice. One of our guests, Gen Ian Patric, gave the address to the Haggis in the traditional Scottish brogue. I didn’t understand much of it, but an excellent job. Our piper was a young Lad in grade 12 but very well practiced. The Scotch was good and I wore my Kilt. Happy 250th and maybe we can shar this event sometime.

    Cheers
