Triumph TR6 - new years toast
|Gentlemen: I was going to propose to you the old Irish toast "May the road rise to meet you." Then I realized that here in California the road rising to meet you just means you're having another earthquake. Oh well. Maybe someone else has a favorite. Any suggestions?|
|J. L. Stein|
|My father was born in Glasgow, Scotland. The Scots have a saying - "Long may your lum reak !" which translates into modern English as "Long may your chimney smoke !". That's a wish of good luck. For TR6 owners, that would mean, "Long may your exhaust pipe smoke !". I guess that's not as lucky.|
Don Elliott, Original Owner, 1958 TR3A,
Neither I nor "TRusty" smoke !
|I guess the intent is that long may your house be lived in - or long may may your TR run.|
|. . . . AND THAT YOU'RE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE A BIT OF WOOD AND COAL IN THE FIREPLACE TO KEEP YOU WARM AT NEW YEARS.|
We take it for granted how really lucky we all are.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!!
Don Elliott, 1958 TR3A
|Hear, Hear Don. Well said.|
We are most fortunate in so many ways.
(course there IS that 3 Litre Healey I've lusted after...)

|Happy New Year everyone, anyone still in a celebrating mood, raise a glass of cheer for another:|
May the best ye've ever seen,
Be the worst ye'll ever see,
May a moose ne'er leave your girnal,
Wi' a teardrop in his e'e,
May ye aye be hale and he'rty,
Till ye're auld enough tae dee,
May ye aye be juist as happy,
As I wish ye aye to be.
Here's to a great driving season with our TRs!

|ANOTHER good one my friends. Good job Les.|
Jim (notice I've stopped cooercing people to join by threatening them with Geese?)
|Jings crivens, help ma boab|
There seems to be mair Scotsmen in Canada than there is in Scotland
|I thought the common rural fuel in Scotland was peat...|
Of course there are?
Our first Prime Minister was a MacDonald. Second a MacKenzie. They wrote home and pointed out the land was free. And a golf course was in the planning stages.
A wee dram of Glenfiddiche. Many cold nights? Well you get the picture.
Had a large dram of Glenpuddoch last night, seemed a good idea at the time, not so sure now!!!!
