Brian is here, dear reader...
We got to the train station with a bit of time to spare, Brian's train ending up about ten minutes late. Not too bad for British standards.
See the very train Brian was on coming in behind me.
The passenger seat is on the left!
After arriving home, we popped out to a bike shop. Brian bought a bicycle. Here, Phyllis helps to assemble it.
Brian and the haggis!
The neeps and tatties!
I don't want to say too much. It's not my job to steal Brian's thunder. You'll be able to read all about his Scottish experience on his Destination Scotland blog, all in due course.
Sadly, Alan couldn't make it to meet Brian off of the train. I had a game getting hold of him to tell him that Brian would be an hour early. Never mind, we'll see him tomorrow. The four of us are going to Stirling.
We're off to see the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in ten minutes. Brian's having a wee nap. I'm going to have a coffee, just to keep me perky.
