Something Different!!



With all the irresponsible things our Provincial Government are doing it is sometimes hard to blog about anything else. However, it is also tedious and a depressing subject and I’m in need of a change. So lets go down Memory Lane one of my favourite places these days. I have posted a photo of my good friend Robby McRobb. Robby and I are good friends and have a lot in common. We are both somewhat ancient immigrants, we are both veterans and we both joined our chosen branches of military service as boys. Robby joined the Canadian Army as an apprentice soldier and I the Royal Navy as a boy seaman. We have both served around the world in harms way and in peace. We are both proud to call ourselves Canadian and are dedicated to this great Country. Robby being Scots and me Irish we also enjoy the single malt!! Of course we might have a dispute over who distills the finest Whiskeys The Scots and Irish are similar in many ways. However there are a few distinct differences. The Scots were never known to be good spellers(whisky) and do sometimes dress oddly and dance with and over sharp swords!!! Whereas the Irish are generally snappy dressers, never have porridge for breakfast and dance with sharp girls. Other than that we have much in common!!!!!!!! Hope this has added a lighter touch to my blog and I hope Robby is still speaking to me???
Cheers and keep reading
