Buckie

Buckie Skyline

I’m having a wonderful time, although I was greeted with news of a tragedy that affects the whole town. There was a terrible accident in which three people were killed and one remains in critical condition. One of the victims was an 8-year-old boy, two were his great aunt and grandmother, and one was a 19-year-old young man. The granddaughter of one of the women, Lisa, is a member of the church. She came back from the US, where she is studying nursing, for the funeral. On top of her loss, she now has to reapply for her visa. Pray for everyone affected by this loss.

We rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.

I have also been doing plenty of rejoicing.

We did find the Loch Ness Monster. You can see her clearly in this picture:

  1. Hello Mark
    Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your Buckie posts. I am instantly transported back in time each time I read one. I am an ex-pat Buckie quine from over 30 years ago. Have lived in Auckland, New Zealand since the 70’s and have a son living near St Louis, Missouri. I grew up just down the road from the church and of course passed it every day of my life on my walk to and from school. Blessings to you and yours. All the best to from “Down Under”.

  2. Thanks so much for reading and for your lovely comment.
