Mute Monday

The topic for Mute Monday is SPIRITS.

Mine is kind of a theme within a theme, I guess. These are the various types of "spirit" we came into contact with in Scotland.

Memorial for those who fell at the Battle of Culloden.

Memorial to Bobby, the loyal little Scot dog who refused to leave his master's grave. His SPIRIT is said to roam the Kirkyard (church yard for you non-scots) still.

Another type of spirit in Scotland! This our dear friend M in front of whiskey kegs (Love to L & M, our Aussie friends if you are reading!)

This dude is indeed showing his Scottish "spirit". I think this was in front of Eileen Donan Castle.

Ah the Scots certainly do have spirit... perhaps that's why we Aussies like them so much... oh, and they enjoy a drink or two... too.

Happy MM.
