Books with a Lamont connection
Permalink  
 


Recently I have picked up a couple of books with Lamont connections. First was "Seasons with the Sea-Horses", by James Lamont, originally printed in 1861. This book recounts his adventures in the Artic in 1858-59. It is available on http://abebooks.com. Second is "Records of Argyle - Legends, Traditions, and Recollections of Argyleshire Highlanders by Lord Archibald Campbell, published 1885. This has been republished by Scot Press and is available from Unicorn  Books along with many other reprints of Scottish books. Worth checking out!

Thanks for the info John, I will probably get them next month.

shame that a lot of the Seasons with the Sea-Horses are coming from India, and Unicorn's shopping page is down.

and on top of that I just found out my Kilt does not fit.

guess I need to go back to bed "LOL"

I hate it when my kilt shrinks.

BTW If we could have a couple of chairs available when we are at the games it would be appreciated. My wife doesn't do a lot of walking around the games but does a good job of "manning the tent" when I get lost.

 well actually evidently it stretched out.  I put it on and buckle as small as it will go and when I let go it falls off.

Now that is a very scary sight shocked.gif

 I always bring 4 chairs with me and I am usually the only one there so we have that covered.

I also usually have a cooler with ice and bottled water.

Thanks so much for the plan. Is there anything we can bring? I will have my wife, Sue, and my daughter Pam with me so the tent will be full We might even have a couple of MacDonalds with us, Pam's friend Teresa and her brother who might break out his kilt. BTW a proud scot would not be upset as to what his kilt revealed although I did see a guy at the games with suspenders. Never underestimate the abilities of a scot to improvise.

 Thanks, I think I have everything covered.  

The more the merrier smile

There is usually a big tent in the middle of the clan area that will seat probably about 100 folks where they do the Highland Dances so if need be we can all gather in there if the dancers are not using it.

I just wore my jacket and waist coat to cover them up.  I talked to the lady in SAMS that is a kilt maker and she said as much as I have lost so far that it needs to be taken apart to shorten and relocate the straps like she had hoped.  Mr Turner that was there for a bit mentioned I may want to just get a new Kilt when I level out and keep this one in case I find again what I have lost  "LOL"
