I'm proud to announce that my precious D2 took 1st place and was given the title of "Harpist of the Day". Yay!
Let me share my day with you.
There was a parade of clans. Folks were either wearing their tartan colors
or costumes of the time.
There was an enormous marching band with bagpipes and drums.
I believe there were close to 200 people in this band. The sound
was so powerful that it gave me goose bumps. Do geese get "people
The band marched away, but the sound went on.
This lovely sheltie showed her tartan.
Help, help! Someone took my kilt! A corgi without his kilt.
Some crazy lady, with a point and shoot camera, was
taking pictures of a funny bumper sticker!
This greyhound proudly displayed her kilt.
Somebody else wasn't as happy with the event.
This band marched this way and that. Whoa! There they are again!
Notice the sign that says Harp and Fiddle? The driver, who was
supposed to deliver us to the correct building for the competition,
didn't notice the sign. I was sitting on the back of a truck holding on to my
daughter's harp for dear life while I slid around on the surface of the truck bed.
We drove in circles for a VERY long time. Hey, if you noticed the sign,
maybe you should drive next time. I'll keep you in mind. Thanks!:)
This lovely didn't need a kilt. Isn't she beautiful?
Love at first sight for me! This is Shamus and Braun. They're Irish Wolfhounds.
They were some of the biggest dogs I've ever seen. I wanted to take them home.
Hmm. Husband or Wolfhounds? That's a tough one.
There were Celtic games. This fellow was throwing a tree trunk.
Hmm. Explain that one to your chiropractor!
I had a great time with my sister and my daughter.
