    A friend told me she could go over Labor Day weekend, but all the big husky men in kilts with bagpipes will be gone.
    I'd say that's definitely a point in favor of going Labor Day weekend My Dad told the story that there was an old Scotsman that lived in town, and one day someone asked how he liked bagpipes. "I like 'em so far away that I canno' hear 'em!"

    ACTUALLY, there is an off-chance that you would see my brother if you go on the Scottish weekend. He is a piper with a small group out of Midland, MI, and he does like to get out in his get-up.

    But there is something about a guy in a skirt playing something that sounds like a screaming cat that just does something to me.

    I really like the "fading piper" because he is walking AWAY from you. Beats the heck out of being caught in front of them.

    I like bagpipes and kilts. Must be my scottish blood. Oh and I'm Presbyterian too which is pretty scottish to the point where we do have pipers in church at times. Amazing Grace on the pipes can bring tears to my eyes.

    I love every single musical instrument there is with the sole exceptions of that one-stringed thing the Chinese play, and the bagpipes, both of them do cruel and painful things to my ear drums. And a duet? Yikes!

    Bagpipes usually bring memories of sadness to me as they are used to lead in funeral processions. Although I have heard them used at weddings too! Men in skirts with knee socks are kinda fun to watch. And I'm always wondering just what is in that heavy purse they wear in front?

    If they play a happy tune, then it's joyful. If it's a sad tune, hand me the kleenex.

    I've already got my own ideas about the 'heavy purses' in the front. My ideas may not be PG.

    Well, I grew up in a Presbyterian church, and we never had bagpipes, thank God. We would have laughed them right out of there.

    There is a group on the Memphis Fire Department that plays them at every last police or fire funeral that ever takes place. And yes, Amazing Grace is their theme song, evidently. My son told me a while back that if he were to get killed in the line of duty, he wanted them to play. I suggested that he needs to hold off till I'm gone because no way would I sit through that.

    I have a 'Survival' Utilikilt. It's great for hiking in hot weather.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.
