  1. It went ok. What I was surprised at was I was only one of three kilted. In the previous meeting I went to at a different locale, almost everyone was. The difference was that the previous one was on a saturday at a scottish microbrew. So, YMMV as usual. I did get some looks leaving work.

    If you do a genealogy search, you should be able to find out a lot. I dug back on mom's side and found Anderson and Scott. My wife is a Watt, so hence the Buchanan tartan in my sig. I like the Anderson tartan though. I'll probably get a kilt in that and Buchanan muted. Anyway, welcome.

    I've been a cat person most of my life. My wife wanted a dog a few years back, so we got one from the rescue, cairn and dashund. He thinks he can take on anything and is the best judge of character I've met. He's a little like Joe Pesci though. He doesn't like male strangers for the most part and wants to take a piece out of them. very protective little chap. He also will jump into the pool to save me if I swim under water. They definitely grow on you.

    Welcome from Arizona. I have a childhood friend that married an Aussie and now works for the NSW Fire Brigade. If we know your last name or the Scottish one, we could talk about tartans. Welcome.

  6. Getting ready at work to go to a Caledonian Society Meeting Thursday night.
  7. OCR & kilts

    I think they are supposed to do a St Patrick's Day Kilt run this year in Phoenix. That should be fun. Hopefully I'll be light enough to run by then.

    I saw it too. Must be true.

    The only place I've heard can be a problem is with the TSA. Seems that you'll more than likely get a personal inspection.

    I didn't know we can get a discount.
  11. new kilts

    I have a standard from them. A little short. Next time I'll get the custom one so I can get more length. Their customer service is very good though. I'll be buying from them again.
  12. Sgian Dubh Ramblings...........

    If I am going to carry a sgian dubhs, it better be real. I don't understand the ceremonial stuff. Here are a few I've narrowed it down to: https://www.amazon.com/Handmade-Damascus-Hunting-Knife-sheath/dp/B01GLQ07HW/ref=pd_ybh_a_124?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=MZMSB7AZZHNGN36HJ42B https://www.amazon.com/Supplies-DM-1076-Damascus-Sgian-Knife/dp/B00K23X7PA/ref=pd_sbs_200_35?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=R2D65T494HWCFHPGR1SC https://www.amazon.com/Columbia-River-Knife-Tool-2075/dp/B01BAJIL32/ref=pd_sbs_200_33?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=R2D65T494HWCFHPGR1SC That said, I am not really a knife person. When I was a kid, I had a small folder, but I don't anymore. I can carry open or concealed, but haven't felt the need. Part of it is that where I work is a weapons free zone and it's not worth the hassle.

    I didn't realize I was supposed to get one.
  14. How Many?

    Just two: One standard utility kilt from UTKilts, black watch and a poly 5 yard in heritage of Scotland from heritage of Scotland. I like the traditional one better for fit and comfort, but the utility kilt is better for working around the house. I haven't gotten anything else as I am losing weight and I don't want to buy something I'll only wear a few months. My next one might be a Utilikilt Mocker or spartan switchback as it has an adjustable waist as does the Stumptown Kilt, which is coming out with a 25" length, which is something I am waiting for. When I get down to my goal weight, then I will get a custom made tartan kilt, in Buchanan which is my wife's tartan and also Anderson, which is in my family history. Scott is too.
  15. I always wear underwear. Just habit.
