That Robert Burns was pretty cute!

Bobby Dylan's choice is wonderful. Of course, Dylan seems to like a whole lot about Scotland. Sometime, probably mid-2006, he and his brother, David, bought Aultmore House, a mansion in Cairngorms National Park near Nethybridge, Inverness-shire.

Dylan, after all, is the guy who wrote "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" and "Highlands" (on the "Time Out of Mind" album), and in 2004 he did get an honorary degree from St. Andrews.

Dylan also adapted a Scottish folk song for "The Times They Are A-Changin'." For those interested, it was Hamish Henderson’s "The 51st (Highland) Division’s Farewell to Sicily."

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
