          ... out to Ottawa, Kansas for my annual visit with my brother Larry and to see a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game. The bumpy, rhythmic clicking of the wheels on the rails and the ever present, nerve racking anticipation of the visit by the conductor checking tickets come to mind. Anyway, this first old train had the same feel to it, at times ...

          ... of Modern Art which I didn’t have time to see while in Edinburgh. I always find it interesting to see the local art of a country or regions through the years. For Scotland significant painting mostly started in the 1700s. Somehow much of it seems quite dark and gloomy like the country, not quite as much of the portraiture, bright landscapes, and sporting scenes I usually associate with British are of the 1700s and ...

          Captions scribbled on the bathroom walls inside the cafe... The proprietor seems to be good with it as long as it keeps bringing in the customers.

          Edinburgh Castle. Lot of history going on inside the castle. Just don't have time to get it all in. If you haven't been to Edinburgh you need to go. It's pretty special.

So we took some photos of it from the windows of the shopping mall next door and headed back to the city. We found a travel agent to get some advice about the Czech Republic, as Leicester and Lidka's plans have changed and we are now not going to be able to ...

          ... in St. Andrews which made it really easy to explore the town. The next morning we set out to take in a couple of the main attractions in St. Andrews, The Old Course and the St. Andrews Castle and Cathedral. The Old Course was beautiful, perched right on the coast and full of history. The castle was beautiful as well and situated at the far end of town it was obvious to see why the location was a strategic military stronghold ...
