The Old Has Passed Away, the New Is Coming

Friends and family,

As you might have suspected, we have concluded our commitment to blog for the year. Thanks for riding through the highs and lows with us. We hope that you got to experience vicariously just a little bit of Scotland.

Christina and I are talking about starting up a new family blog, mainly for posting pics of Lazarus. Once that is set up, we'll have a link from this page to the new one.

With love and respect,

Homeward Bound

We're coming back to the States tomorrow (Friday, August 8). If you think about it, please pray that we have a safe and entirely boring trip!

Are the Hitchcocks Accented?

Brace yourselves, people. We've picked up a serious Scottish brogue since arriving on this verdant isle.

Okay, not really. Okay, not at all. Edinburgh is far too cosmopolitan to have any kind of standard accent. There are as many English-sounding accents as Scottish. But to commemorate the fine sound of the Scots, we're including a fabulous video from The Proclaimers called "Throw the R Away."
