A Scottish toast to bring in the new year!!

As this year ends and we march into 2012, here is an old Scottish toast to you all.

Lets hope it's a great year for us all.
May the best ye hae ivver seen be the warst ye'll ivver see.
May the moose ne'er lea' yer girnal wi a tear-drap in its ee.
May ye aye keep hail an hertie till ye'r auld eneuch tae dee. ... ...
May ye aye juist be sae happie as A wuss ye aye tae be.
The above, in translation, reads:
May the best you have ever seen be the worst you will ever see.
May the mouse never leave your grain store with a tear drop in its eye.
May you always stay hale and hearty until you are old enough to die.
May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be.
Have to admit I stole this but think it is great.
