    Julie those pictures are just wonderful - so lush and green, too! I have attended just one exhibt of piping, but I remember it to this day - the intensity of a number of bagpipes playing at once brings goosebumps! I think they were the Clan Macleay.

    Thanks, all! Games really are fun. And at the bigger games, everyone is in a skirt! I've been to a few this year, just to see my buddies, and I missed most of last year, as well. But I competed at 15 games through the Spr-Sum-Fall in 2004. That was a lot of Scottish!

    If you are interested, I can point you to a calendar for your area. Just PM me.

    Sure I would like to know when the games will be in Sarasota. Let me know if you get a chance to make it down here. I can show you some of my orchid haunts!

    It's usually the first Sat. in Feb, Aaron. Let's plan on it! They don't have the 2007 schedule up yet, but that's a pretty safe bet for the date. Cin and Tami - you might need to come and hear some piping, as well! Then we could all road trip to Aaron's orchid oasis and toast his dear grandmother with some slight different heavenly spirits!

    Oh, and Mehera...

    Has Clint special custom-ordered some novelty undergarments? Or were thinking of surprising him...
