Blinkin' young. On the train in between Inverness and Edinburgh.

Everything is a little more intense in Scotland. The light, the course work, and my basic needs and emotions. When I am tired here, I am exhausted, when I am hungry, I feel like I haven't eaten in a week, but when I am having a good time, I am having the time of my life.
An elderly lady in a pub the other night said to me, "You are only blinkin' young once!" This was after she told Rachel and I to make sure we were having fun. She followed with telling us not to let any boys grab us, but that we should grab them first, ( I took that for what its worth). She also mentioned that last weekend she had one too many and was dancing around the pub with her friends. She is a great-granny. I hope when I am a great-granny I am having one too many with my friends and dancing around town.

By that lovely Pebbles pic of me. I too agree with the intensity of all feelings and work. But we are gonna make it! :-)
