A Wee Dram


Thanks to the Father's Day generosity, mischievousness, and creativity of my three beloved children -- Jordan, Caleb & Renee -- I am currently not only the possessor of a fine bottle of Scottish Whiskey, but also have a life-time lease on a square foot of Scotland on the Isle of Islay, in the Hebrides, which is not that far from our clan's traditional (medieval) lands in Argyll.

And all five of us had a fantastic day together -- I am blessed with an incredible family!

And I think it most fitting that the first "wee dram" will be done as a toast in honour of my father, Keith McAlpine, whose commitment to living his faith out in every aspect of his life (even when it got him fired) continues to serve as an inspiration to me.
