Just call me "Lady Leslie"....

This is not something that I mention too often, because I would never want anyone to think I was "putting on airs," but, I do have a “title”. I am officially a “Lady” due to the fact that I own land on Kincavel estate in North West Scotland. Below is a picture of my one square foot plot of land(the yellow pin prick. I can give you the GPS settings if you want to zoom in closer, just call me). Doesn’t it look beautiful?!?!? I hope to visit it one day. This title will be passed on to one of my daughters, so if I turn up mysteriously dead one day you will all know the motive. I received the land last Christmas when my son to give it to me for a Christmas present (actually I bought it for him to give it to me). Yes, I even shop for my own presents. Is that too obsessive-compulsive, or what?

You should see the beautiful bracelet I bought for Bruce to give to me. It has my favorite Shakespeare sonnet #116 (see July blog archive below) engraved in it. How romantic am I??? Of course, if you want a title also, I can tell you where to get one for a few pounds! That’s what we need around here, a few more members of the Aristocracy!!! Long live the Queen!!!!( I have to say that kind of thing now that I have a title)

You are hilarious. You certainly make life more interesting for everyone around you. Now I am thinking of how I can purchase the square foot plot next to you so that we can be titled neighbors!

By the way, my niece has been calling me, "Milady" and I've come to like the sound of that.....

Doesn't that stuff pass down to your first born automatically? Lady Kathryn... I wonder how the real estate market is there.

Hi Lady Leslie... I saw Becky's link to your blog and had to check it out. I'm sending my mom the link if you don't mind. I keep telling her to do a blog. But I'm having fun reading your posts! NC is pretty isn't it? :)

You go Lady! And... just for the record, that's how you get what you want - buy it yourself! My mom always did that at Christmastime - bought herself something she knew no one else would because they had no idea she wanted it. Love your posts!
