Hai Aonghais 's a h-uile duine:

  Tha samhradh an seo mu dheireadh.  Bha againn ceithir lithean blth
comhla ri chile.  (A bheil e ceart?  I wanted to say "four warm days in
a row", but what I made of it didn't sound right to me.)
  Bha mi a' togail balla na cloiche (neo balla na clach--should I be
saying "wall of stone"--or--"wall of stones"?)  Tha 'm fear garr,
timcheall air "flower bed", ach 'se clachair gl bhochd a th' annam. 
Tha mo chl ghoirt.
  D 'n coltas a th' air a' t-samhradh agaibh?

  Summer is here at last.  We had four warm days together.  I was
building a stone wall.  It's a short one, around a flower bed, but it's
a very bad mason that's in me.  My back is sore.
  What is your summer like?


(Angus, I'm sorry, but it seems I have more questions than ever.)
