I'm not tall (unless you're exceptionally short yourself), I'm not dark (unless you count my sense of humour), and to most of you I'm not much of a stranger, I don't have black bun (because I can't stand the stuff), I don't have coal (because I have a gas fire), I do have some damn fine single malt whisky though - will that do? Allow me to be your First Foot.
(First footing is a good old fashioned tradition to bring in the New Year.)
Ha' a Guid Ne'er!!! (and lang may yer lum reek!)
May 2005 bring you everything you hope it will and more.
