R stands for Robbie Burns.

Robert Burns was a world reknown poet, writer and lyricist. he was born in Scotland and wrote many splendid poems about his beloved Scotland. His words were often Romantic and were directed to his many loves. From reading about his life it seemed he fathered many children.

This is a favourite poem/lyric by Robbie Burns.

My love is like a red red rose      


  That's newly sprung in June 

 My love is like the  melody 

That's sweetly played in tune.

  As fair thou art my bonnie lass

 So deep in love am  I:

And I will love you still , my dear 

Till all the seas gang dry.

Till all the seas gang dry my dear

And the rock melts wi' the sun

And I will love thee, still  my dear,

While the sands o' life shall run                      
Robert Burns with his love Highland Mary. this poem is dedicated to her, so romantic!

And fare thee well a while          

And I will come again my love

Tho' it were were ten thousand mile.

I am dedicating the lovely ballad to my darling husband Ian . He has recently undergone kidney dialysis and is now preparing for open heart surgery, this will take place on Wednesday 17th of May, needless to say the Realisation of what is about to happen envelopes us both...countdown time....I'm wishing my life away, just wishing and hoping for it all to be over and for him to be fit and well again. His surgeon assures us he'll be a new man again.

Our thanks to Denise, Roger and leslie for keeping this much love mem running so well,
also to the team of helper who support Roger and co !
Best wishes,
ABCW team.



  1. ACH! Good old RRRRobbie Burrrrrns! Love him and celebrate him every January with a good roast beef, mash & neeps, peas and the highlight is the haggis! I even named one of my dogs Robbie because I brought him home on Robbie Burns Day! Best of luck to Ian and to you staying calm throughout so you can be ready to welcome him home.
