Heading to the Games


We are heading north early tomorrow morning. We are heading to Stone Mountain, Georgia near Atlanta for the Stone Mountain Highland Games. We will be spending lots of time with our friends from Clan Montgomery Society International and watching and listening to our friend, Alex Beaton, who is the premier entertainer at Highland Games across the country. We generally meet some old friends of ours for the weekend but they are unable to attend this year due to the poor health of Lora's mother. The games are held on Saturday and Sunday but we go a day early and spend Friday taking in the sights around Stone Mountain. We will miss Vard and Lora but still will spend time riding the train, the Duck Boats, etc. I will have the computer with me but don't know how much I will be blogging. So, we are spending the weekend partaking of good friends, good entertainment, pipe bands, Scottish Dancers, athletes, Scottish food and, yes, adult beverages. And let us not forget men in kilts!!!
