There is a lingerie store, Silks and Secrets, right next door, which saved us traipsing around the city looking for such items. (as if.)
A hearty breakfast is served in the main dining room. Our room is an adequate size, with a kettle, teabags, cookies and a TV. We have access to The American Crime Channel which has back-to-back Law and Order as well as Matlock and Murder She Wrote. No, we are not spending all our time watching TV, but we do have a touch of jetlag and sore feet.
Today we visited Provand's Lordship which is the oldest house in Glasgow, built in 1471 for the Bishop of Glasgow.
We walked across the Bridge of Sighs which leads to The Glasgow Necropolis. The bridge is said to be the separation between time and eternity.
The Glasgow Necropolis is the final resting place of many business people and entrepreneurs of Glasgow.
This picture of Tom in front of a doorway in the 1471 house shows how the stature of the Scot has changed over the last 500 years. It was at least a foot too short for him.
On a serious note, Tom is finding his time in Glasgow to be quite emotional, walking the streets that his father probably walked before immigrating to Canada. Tom's father died when Tom was only 8 so he knows very little of his father's background and history. He does know he was born in Glasgow.
The leaves are changing here in Glasgow. I am loving the temperature....cool and fresh-- a hot flasher 's dream.
Here is Robert Burns in George Square. I am having techy issues with my blog (should have brought my tablet) so I end this post with a Robert Burns quote that speaks to my tech issues......"the best-laid plans of mice and men, gang aft agley..."
Until Next Time....
