The Alec Forbes book is a first edition with an owners signature and the year 1893 written in the front! 122 years old!
Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood has lovely end papers and just says New Edition.
"I think we cud sort them," said Phemy. "There's ae place, a guid bit farrer in, what the rufe comes doon to the flure, leavin' jist ae sma' hole to creep throu': it wad be fine to hae a gey muckle stane handy, jist to row athort it, an' gar't luik as gien 't was the en' o' a'thing. But the hole's sae sma' at the laird has ill gettin' his puir back throu' 't."
Isn't that great?!
Problem is, I am going to go way over my weight limit in my luggage going home. Katrina is sending lots of books home with me and we still have to go to Leakeys used bookstore in Inverness. So we have gone to the Postoffice and inquired and I can send a box of books home by freight not air for a good price. Much cheaper than an extra suitcase to check! But George MacDonald will be traveling in my carry on!
Today we took a long coastal walk along the Firth of Forth in Kirkcaldy and climbed over rocks to get close enough to take pics of a bunch of seals sunning on the rocks! I used muscles I forgot I had! It was worth it though! For supper we had Indian curry, my first taste of that kind of food. Delicious!
Edinburgh Castle on Saturday! And Sunday we're going to Peebles to meet Evee from Evee's Blog. She's going with us on our trip to the Highlands too! Looking forward to meeting her in person!
