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?

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 !
Don Elliott

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 !!!

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:
Scottish Toast
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.
Anon.

Here's to a great driving season with our TRs!

Hey Ron

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.

Hi Bill
Had a large dram of Glenpuddoch last night, seemed a good idea at the time, not so sure now!!!!
