"Lang may yer lum reek!"

That is a Scottish salutation wishing long life and prosperity.
(Literally, long may your chimney smoke.)

Will and Bailey will be learning that lingo come next fall!

And maybe he'll be whispering that in her ear.
(That was in good taste.)

You see, they've both been accepted to do graduate work at the University of Glasgow in Scotland!!!

Here's a picture of part of the university...
It looks a tad different than the University of Texas at Arlington, I'd say.

'Course I'll have to go see for myself just how different.
Oh yes.

Thanks for the tip on the Scottish greeting!

I love the campus. I feel like I'm gonna be going to Hogwarts.

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
