Some heathens apparently like to get married in a kilt, and would then never use it again. Renting sort of makes some sense then.

And, just what is wrong with getting married in your kilt?

He was probably talking about a MacDonald tartan.

Mcleod and Macleod, what's the difference here, John. Plenty of tartan for
Macleod but difficult to find for the Mcleod clan.

LOL Vic! You realize that now we are all imagining you shaving your legs with a pink plastic razor in a tub full of bubbles.

No I don't do that, it happened all on its own, that would be too much work...

Ay, did notice that regarding his avatar yet tartan searches for Mcleod seem to
want to direct you to Macleod. No doubt though John will explain the difference
in names.


Mcleod of Lewis tartan.

Bravo my good man, and quite a correct response too if I might make so bold. Us gentlemen of the old school need to stick together against these upstarts across the channel, and over the Atlantic. Damn 5th columnists batting on the wrong side if you ask me.

Hrrrrumph. Barman, two large pink gins for myself and my good friend, if you please.

There's no English Restaurants in the US because you don't understand us or our sense of humour.

[snip]
It's a symptom I've read of heart disease that I inherited from My Mothers side(like thick toe nails) of the family and no I don't shave My legs, heck I have a beard nearly 2" thick.. My Brother had the same problem, so it's not a laughing matter...
