Hair Encrusted?

I know, it's a little strange.  You would understand if you were there.  Mike and Margie understand.  We were tired and hungry.  We'd been on the road for 8 days in a car in a foreign country although Scotland isn't that foreign.  It was our last night there.  We sat down for dinner at the hotel restaurant.  Our waitress had a charming Scottish burr.  David has a stunning gift for languages.  She told us the specials.  He asked her to repeat the last one.  She did.  He turned to look at me with the strangest look on his face.  I translated--Herb Encrusted Lamb.  He looked extremely relieved "I couldn't imagine why anyone would want to encrust a lamb with hair".  It still makes me laugh a little when I think about the look on his face. 

Stay tuned for more adventures from our Scotland trip and who knows what else.
