O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.
Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my luve,
Though it were ten thousand mile.

I told my mom (in Alabama) about Burns Suppers and she said "I think haggis is illegal here." hahaha
@jbb Last year in Glasgow there was a huge ad campaign encouraging folks not to go to their neighbors houses for covid reasons. It was catchy but I don't remember it now - "don't let anyone be your first footer" or something like that.
@jbb what part of Alabama? (I promise I'm not gonna stalk you, I just want to text my mom that a librarian in xx, Alabama is eating haggis right now, so it's ok, mom!)
Also, have you ever had veggie haggis? Pretty great, but very different. I prefer it.
@thesunshinesushi I'm in Gadsden. I am also Episcopalian (for 3 years now), which is why I started following you.
