The Land of my Fore Fathers and Fore Mothers

I kid my friend Sue, from Scotland, that she is one of my "peeps" since I am a great, great grand daughter of a Scottish Immigrant AND the fact that I have always loved Kilts and Scotch Plaids.

I received this postcard from her a week ago. She had gone on a day trip to Pitlochry, on the edge of the Sheffield Highlands almost smack, dab in the middle of Scotland.

She asked, "Doesn't it look like home?"

My answer . . . this is exactly the kind of town I would LOVE to live in . . but closer to Indiana, please.

Thanks for thinking of me Sue. Some day I hope to be able to visit Edinburgh, and the rest of Scotland, the land of Watson Kirkham, my great, great grandfather.

  1. Our Matheson roots come from Forfar and Creich, Scotland. Our son had an opportunity to visit last fall and almost didn't come home. He's planning a trip with The Hubster for sometime this year and I'm afraid I might lose them both to the beauty of Scotland. Doesn't it look wonderful!?
