Thumbs up response

My mother, who is a proud Anglo, always, sometimes angrily, notes "you have one person that was a Scot".

I myself consider myself Scottish in heart and perception, much of my mentality is Scottish and my name and lineage is all that I need. No matter what other ethnic additions,that is me. She herself is part Welsh-she wont admit it, but no matter where in England the Penrose side came, they are Welsh...as well as German,etc........

As a Campbell, I know that I am a Scot and part of a royal race and for generations, was Scottish....

that is enough for me.

Why the need to define the definition. Thats not correct.

Oh and I am Scottish born and that makes me a Scot
