Subject: Things I shall miss about the USA
From: Murray MacLeod
Date: 01 Mar 02 - 05:10 PM

In a little over two hours I am getting married to my beautiful Cajun bride Yvonne, and this will be my last post as a single man. Third time lucky, they say.

At the end of the month we are returning to Scotland, where I have been offered a golden opportunity by the owner of the Pinetrees Hotel in beautiful downtown Pitlochry, where I will be dividing my time between making guitars, making furniture, and making music for the hotel guests. This is literally one of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

The downside of all this joy and celebration is that I will be leaving a country whose people I have come to know and love over the past four years. It occurred to me to jot down a random list of the things I shall miss most about the USA (some of these are Florida-specific)

1. The weather, obviously. Although I have never had any problems facing the Scottish weather, I must say that being able to work outside stripped to the waist in December has its advantages.

2 Cuban coffee. Unique. Unlike anything else. I am going to suffer severe withdrawal symptoms. Nescafe Instant just doesn't hold out the same appeal ....

3 Free local phone calls. Having to pay for local calls in the UK means I can't just log on to AOL and leave the thing running 24/7, which I have been in the habit of doing over here. It does however mean that when DebC sends me an instant message she can be sure I am actually at the other end.

4 Feet and inches. Again, I have no problem operating in metric, it's just that I like working and measuring in imperial units, and going back to buying wood that is priced by the "cubic metre" instead of the "board foot" is really going to piss me off.

5. Cheap gasoline. $1.10 is what I currently pay for a gallon of gasoline, over in Britain it must be at least five times that. Bummer.

6 Turning right on red. Well, in Britain, it would be turning left on red. Such a sensible idea, keeps the traffic moving, why Britain hasn't adopted it I cannot understand.

7 American tools. As a woodworking tool junkie, I have drooled for four years over the range and quality of tools available both through specialist catalogs and over the counter in superstores such as Home Depot. I am going to miss Home Depot. B & Q doesn't quite match up. ( Or didn't last time I was there. )

These are just a few, personal, selfish and really wuite unimportant things I shall miss. There are of course things I am looking forward to with keen anticipation, such as the taste of British milk ( I have never enjoyed the taste of American milk ), and visiting Glenfarg Folk Club again.

No doubt there other "things I shall miss" will occur to me later, but right now I got to go and get ready to get married.

Murray

I'll tell you what else you're going to miss Murray, you're going to miss Americans. You're going to miss all those wonderful people who you met, made friends with, and enjoyed each others company.
It's the people who matter the most Murray, not old tools and cheap petrol. After several stints in the U.S. and now back in OZ I really miss the friendliness of your average Mr & Mrs America.

Welcome to the delights of life in the Grampions !

Don't worry about the feet and inches thing. Unless you go to B&Q or something most lumber yards are quite happy to work in imperial measurements. There are online tools and ironmongery sites over here ( although my ludite of a father won't sanction them, though he has discovered the joys of "Screwsdirect", real firm...honest, but that's only 'cos you phone them. It's taken him a while, but he's finally got the hang of the 'phone!)

Quite a few telephone companies are doing unlimited access to the net for a set monthly fee, usually about £15.

Can't do much about the weather ( but for short trips try the west coast around about Ayr....sandy beaches, very good for swimming and getting sunburnt....)

The coffee...well...I apologise in advance. Let's put it this way.....why do you think very large numbers of brits drink tea? You can get cuban coffee, but you'll either have to make it yourself or pay through the nose at a starbucks or something.

Other than that, enjoy yersel! I may come and visit ! : )

Incidentally, if Havana cigars are banned in the Strtaes, how come you can get Cuban coffee? Or does that mean something other than coffee made from beans imported from Cuba? Because there's no problem in getting that here. (Or Havana cigars.)

Murray,

Bill came in and asked me, "Don't we know a joke about Pitlochry?" Well, I'm going to tell you the joke and it is PERFECT, but first I'm going to tell you how fondly I remember Pitlochry.

BTW it's near Blair (home of the Stewarts of Blair, I believe.... I think their grandfather was the official piper for Blair Atholl castle at one time but on matters like these one can't trust my memory.) Anyway, in "The Yellow on the Broom" there's a line, "To the plantin' and the pearlin', and the berry fields of Blair."

Here's why I love Pitlochry. In 1968 I was traveling with a friend, Sarah. We had rented a car and driven up to Skye, and stopped at Pitlochry on the way back (after we visited B.A. castle) because we had heard there would be a folk music program that night.

Howsomever. Sarah said she had spent almost a week sleeping in a double bed with me and now that we were in a "sizeable" town, she was going to insist on twin beds because I toss and turn so much. Can't blame her... But we asked at several B&B houses and they were full or had no rooms with twin singles.

Here's the thing: At every place that turned us down, they had a suggestion for the next place to try. They knew which of their neighbors offered a room with twin beds and were willing to help. Finally we knocked on a door and the landlady said, No, she didn't have a twin room, but "I'll tell you what. Leave your luggage here, in my foyer, and go through to the top of my yard. Climb over the fence there, and ask my back neighbor Mrs. MacLeod if her neighbor with the twin room still has it available."

We had met any number of warm, wonderful, friendly people on our drive through Scotland but this was tops. We found Mrs. MacLeod. She called her neighbor. The neighbor rented us a room. And when we got back to her B&B after the folk music program, the neighbor had tea and cookies set out for us.

It still makes me smile inside to remember this.

Now for the joke. We heard it at the folk music program and it is SO appropriate....

Seems that Angus met Jock on the streets of Pitlochry. He said, "Why, Jock, I've never seen you in the big city before. What are you doing here?" Jock: "Why, Angus, Mary and I got married just three days ago. I'm here on my honeymoon." Angus: "Oh, that's great. And how does Mary like Pitlochry?" Jock: "Oh, Mary's not with me." Angus: "Not with ye? But why on earth not?" Jock: "Hoot, mon, Mary has SEEN Pitlochry."

Enjoy your honeymoon in Pitlochry....

Rita F

Well, what a pleasant surprise to return home and see all the expressions of goodwill. Thank you all, I am going to send PMs to each of you to thank you.

The wedding went off without a hitch. It was somewhat unconventional to say the least. We were married at 7.30 on the stage of the Main Street Cafe in Homestead, on the night of our Friday Open Mike, and the place was packed with all our friends here in South Florida. Lynn, the notary who married us, is a friend and a regular at the Open Mike. This was also her first wedding so she was thrilled.

Yvonne came down the "aisle" to the sounds of the Wedding March played on electric guitar by our local guitar hero, Scott Emmons. If you remember how Hendrix played the "Star Spangled Banner" at Woodstock, you can imagine how Scott played the Wedding March. It was wonderful.

Afterwards, everybody sang for us, and we had the honor of hearing a song specially written and sung for us by Grant Livingston, one of Florida's best singer/songwriters.

Our wedding cake was British style, fruit cake with hard icing (frosting). ( American wedding cakes for those who haven't tasted them are soft, with soft icing and have to be eaten with a fork )

I will send in a photo for the Photos page as soon as I have something digitized.

Once again thanks for your good wishes, and I will contact everybody personally by PM.

Murray

Thought I would just clarify the Cuban coffee thing for Kevin's benefit and also for other kind people who have volunteered to take it across.

What I was referring to is the Cuban "colada", a very thick, strong, sweet coffee, which is sold in Cuban cafeterias in South Florida, in a polystyrene cup, along with half a dozen little thimble-sized cups to share it out among your friends. It is always taken black btw, and it is simply delicious. In a working day I would normally share a colada four or five times.

An apt comparison, I think, is that it is to instant or ordinary percolated coffee as Drambuie is to shandy. I have been told that it is possible to buy the machine to make the stuff in your home, but I am skeptical. I have tasted one home-made colada and it almost made me vomit. There is some mystique in its preparation which laymen are not privy to ....

Murray, some things to look forward to:-

1) Roads with bends.

2) Cars which corner and are fun to drive.

3) Cars with manual transmissions.

4) Beer. The proper kind.

5) Wine at a reasonable price.

6) A general lack of alligators outside of zoos.

7) Bread (and other food) without tons of sugar in it.

8) Cheese that tastes of something.

9) Proper chocolate.

10) Being able to complain about the weather! :-)

Good luck!

Murray,

I'd kill to be in your shoes. I'm so keen to be in Scotland I can close my eyes and taste the beer, the Arbroath smokies, and the butter rolls. Of course, those aren't the only things I love about Caledonia. Congrats on your opportunity.

I work part-time at one of the local Home Depots in my area. I've often wondered why they haven't established a presence in the UK. As popular as DIY stores are over there, especially in Scotland, surely the Home Depot would be a huge success.

Anyway, all the best to you and your new bride.
