Burn's Day Lunch

Richard the Piper wasn't available on Friday so we did our Burn's celebration a bit early. Gordon dressed  in his kilt and velvet jacket and was the guest of honour. He walked in as Richard played the bagpipes and then the haggis was piped in carried by Gordon's wife Patricia. Richard read the Ode to the Haggis in Scots and then we had the English translation . At the appropriate moment Gordon cut into the haggis and shared a toast of whisky.
