It is truly frustrating at the number of events that take place at times during which I have no means to attend. Lord Edward, the parade must have been impressive - are there photographs anywhere, do you know?

I will, however, make my best efforts to be at the Wizard of OZ dance, at least briefly, and of course am looking forward to the ceilidh with great enthusiasm. I think, perhaps, I'll even try my hand at this caber business.
