Scottish Borders

This is Ferniehirst, not a mini castle, but a fortified house in southern Scotland. Notice the gun holes in the tower-it must have been pretty wild back in the day. Parts of this place are over 500 years old, so that means most of the population were then living in mud huts and the gun holes must have come in handy. Also pictured are my two lovely children-back when they were good and pre-teen. The zombie-like demeanor they are affecting is most likely due to the vast amounts of culture they were exposed to that day. Oh well, at their age and beyond, my eyes would glaze over very quickly in similiar situations. So, it’s an old tradition to torture the children in this fashion. Some day, when they’re old like me, they’ll think that it was cool, maybe.
