Half pissed pipers!!!! When I was piping, it was fully pissed or to be looked on in wonder and amazement.

HEY... When did I become a Maj.Gen. I was always told I'd never rise above Major Nuisance. Drinks all around and put it on some young Lt's mess bill.

We've had some school closures. Mainly country schools, but the teachers still have to come in. It's to do with buses and kids having to wait out in the cold. And yes I heard the Kee Kee birds this morning.

I don't ever recall my school being closed when I was growing up in Glasgow in the 50's. We all walked to school and most of the teachers used the bus, don't think we had any teachers living in Nitshill. It was a bit posh for them! Rolling Eyes

May I correct my earlier; it was only one mile to school; half mile of mud and stones and half mile of tarred road which was luxury as the stone transmitted cold instantly to the bare sole. Caused one to run which meant I was very fit when I joined the illustrious R. Sigs.

Dulaigh, it sounds as if you are eminently qualified for the RHA, qualifications to be a proper Gunner seem to be lacking. Rolling Eyes
