January 24th. Tomorrow is the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby so I'll be busy all day with that and couldn't conduct a proper Burns' Night. Well I made do tonight and my brother surprised me with his recitation ability. He sounded just like Sean Connery in full pirate mode on "Address to a Haggis".  

Anyone else do Burns' Night or Pinewood Derby?







ETA: title edit.   My muse has been getting me riled up.

Did the pinewood derby when I was a Cub Scout and hopefully My son will do it when he is older.

No to Burns Night, had to google it.

For search and Burns!

   Green grow the rashes, O;
   Green grow the rashes, O;
   The sweetest hours that e'er I spend,
   Are spent amang the lasses, O.

   There's nought but care on ev'ry han',
   In ev'ry hour that passes, O:
   What signifies the life o' man,
   An' 'twere na for the lasses, O.
   Green grow, &c.

   The war'ly race may riches chase,
   An' riches still may fly them, O;
   An' tho' at last they catch them fast,
   Their hearts can ne'er enjoy them, O.
   Green grow, &c.

   But gie me a cannie hour at e'en,
   My arms about my dearie, O;
   An' war'ly cares, an' war'ly men,
   May a' gae tapsalteerie, O!
   Green grow, &c.

   For you sae douce, ye sneer at this;
   Ye're nought but senseless asses, O:
   The wisest man the warl' e'er saw,
   He dearly lov'd the lasses, O.
   Green grow, &c.

   Auld Nature swears, the lovely dears
   Her noblest work she classes, O:
   Her prentice han' she try'd on man,
   An' then she made the lasses, O.
   Green grow, &c.

We may be doing blast car in the Troop this year. It's a completely blank slate and we get to write the rulebook.

O Lay Thy Loof In Mine, Lass


Type: Poem

   Chorus-O lay thy loof in mine, lass,
   In mine, lass, in mine, lass;
   And swear on thy white hand, lass,
   That thou wilt be my ain.

   A slave to Love's unbounded sway,
   He aft has wrought me meikle wae;
   But now he is my deadly fae,
   Unless thou be my ain.
   O lay thy loof, &c.

   There's mony a lass has broke my rest,
   That for a blink I hae lo'ed best;
   But thou art Queen within my breast,
   For ever to remain.
   O lay thy loof, &c.

Well this is a first. The "U" car managed a 6th place finish and advanced to District.

I too had my Burns night interrupted this year with the pwd.  Ended up with 2 den 1st place finishes and 1st and 3rd place in the pack out of 50 ish boys. They were pleased.  Had my fresh Schlafy scotch ale, but unfortunately no haggis or neeps and tatties though. Next year.  Off to districts next week (took home a 2nd place in districts last year, so we are hopeful for a couple of top 10 cars this year).
