I do "Piping" too!

"Bagpipes... The missing link between noise and music"

I officially turned "Professional" while in Scotland 2009, when two nice lady tourists dropped
1 pound 56 pence into my pipe case while I was piping a slow Air on the banks of Loch Lomond.
I think they thought I was a local piper in need, and was busking for money.
They had big smiles and were happy... Never the less, I thanked them and kept the change.
That made my day.....

I'm mostly Scottish in heritage, but just enough Irish to have fUN!


So... What IS worn under the kilt?... Depends?

You've had a smile today
