Tommy and I twice went to Scotland with Tom and Lucille, once with Betsy and the second time with Ken Armstrong and Robbie Kearney. They were both great trips. Tommy drove us all over from London to Edinburgh to Ullapool and back. We hunted down all the notable Armstrong places like Gilnockie Tower and the tomb of Johnny Armstrong, a notorious name in the history of this Borderlands clan. Lucille and Tom were great to be with and I am so glad Tommy and I took these trips with them!
