Happy Battle of Bannockburn 700th Anniversary

Aye.  You guessed it.  June 24 in the year 1314 the esteemed Robert the Bruce defeated Edward II of England in the Scottish War of Independence.

And thank goodness he did.

Those bloody bastards had done enough damage and needed to be put in their places.

And, eventually, Sir Robert the Bruce became King and later gave a castle to my Burnett ancestors.

And everyone should have a castle in the family.  You know?  So thank the Universe for today, 700 years ago.

Cheers.

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
