Lang May Yer Lum Reek

Better late than never, this is my Happy New Year post. It was Kay Kay's last day with us and we decided to go visit Stirling Castle. It was freezing (surprised?) but fun. Justus never seems to mind that it's cold. When we were leaving the castle, one of the men at the door said 'Lang may yer lum reek' to which we all said 'Yeah...wait, what?' He told us it's a traditional Scottish New Year's phrase meaning 'Long may your chimney smoke!'

We were trying not to freeze...he was just laid back having a good time. :)
"Better get used to those bars, kid." (ha ha)
Waving the Royal Flag of Scotland with pride like a true Buchanan.
You can't see Justus' face, but I'm sure he is beaming with pride. :)
