The End of An Era

The New Scot came down from Maine on Thursday and left that night--he will be leaving for Ontario this weekend to start a new job as a principal. Good luck! We barely fit everything that was in storage into the moving van, but fortunately he purchased some cords to strap the futon mattress and blue chair to the van. I am sure they will be put to good use here at the apartment. By the way, thank you again, New Scot, for the bookshelves! They have come in handy during the cleaning and organization process.

I wonder if an Enterprise van will be large enough for my belongings. I doubt it.

Hard to believe that we will not be seeing each other again for a while. The New Scot has certainly made life in Boston more bearable for all of us here in the house, being a source of humor (even if some of it is "Scottish" humor... haha).

Proverbs 18: 24
"There are friends who pretend to be friends, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother"

The Philosopher with the New Scot.

The New Scot. (Looks like an IRA terrorist.)
"Aye, you better watch out, your Campbells! I'm mad and I'm on the loose."

Somebody with the New Scot.

The New Scot, the Lady Downstairs, and the Philosopher.

We will be waiting for you to get your kilt (soon, we hope!) so we can post a picture of you in it up. (And no funny stuff, like that soldier with Queen Elizabeth.) Whoa, Hector Russell is expensive. The Tartan Box is a little bit cheaper. House of Tartan. ScotClans.

Or better yet, make your own:
