Craig - sounds Scottish!


Here is another panorama photo put together by TFNP. He did some color work on it too - Very Scottish!
Today is my big brother's birthday. Toby says it is the year of Dick Butkus (no. 51). I would post a picture of my brother, but I don't have one on this computer, but I have one in mind when I get home. Craig's birthday is always a reminder that my birthday is just a short ways away. Since I am a year younger, you can do the math and know that this will be a big birthday for me. I'm glad I had a big brother to go through things first. He went off to school first, entered jr. high first, drove first, etc. He paved the way for me letting me know that everything would be okay - easing my childhood fears. Yet, there were lots of things we did together as a team, because we were so close in age. I think I may have dated first, but then, I was cuter. In some ways I was more daring; in other ways, he was the more daring. Both of us were pretty cautious, but together we could git 'er done. Sitting here now and thinking of the things we got into or did, I think we were the typical "Dick and Jane" kids with our dog "Spanky." Anyway, Happy Birthday, Craig. I'm glad you were first.

Well...it should sound Scottish...IT IS! Check this site out for some very interesting reading on Clan Craig. Personally, i think the Clan motto is WAAAAAY cool (much cooler than mine own). Happy Birthday to Craig, my blogmom's brother, so...now that you are a regular commenter does that make us related in blogblood? Maybe like a bloguncle? Bloguncle, sounds oceanic. Man, i've had waaaay too much coffee without breakfast! Oh yeah, i almost forgot...this is from yesterday's comment material… The Scotsman

Here’s more reading on Clan Craig...cool stuff that.

Piper, I was wondering what happened. One minute your comments were there and the next they were gone. I was thinking that those links were so cool. I'm glad you got them posted. That is the song, although TZ does it better. And the Craig Clan link is the perfect birthday present for my brother. Love you!

According to Clan Craig's website, "all their Kings agree to marry an Irish Princess." Does that make me an Irish Princess? :)
