His Pipes, His Pipes Were Calling

18 05 2009

Saturday Young Son played the pipes in the Tallahassee Scottish Games for the first time, and cut such a dashing figure (and had such a fine mentor, of course) that he was invited to march with the massed bands in the opening ceremony, too. Like Shakespeare’s Juliet, this was “an honor he dreamed not of” and very exciting for us all!

Then the ceilidh (dance party) at Gill’s Steakhouse & Tavern that night held more surprises I’ll tell you about too, but it’s not an illustrated story, so it can wait a bit. 🙂
