Wayne does the UK - June 2005

        This was my 7th trip to the UK and it was a good one. I did my first ever shows in Scotland and made it as far as 2 hours north of Stirling in the Highlands. We spent a night in a Scottish castle, drove through parts of Wales, and generally helped show my son Paul a good time in honor of his graduation from college. He's decided he's Scottish. I'm not sure how that works, unless it's because my Viking ancestors pillaged some villages in Scotland and there's some Scottish blood lurking in his veins.
Thanks to all the folks in England and Scotland who showed us such a jolly good time.
