Last week my wife and lost our first child, Fiona Michelle, was stillborn.
We have a small idea of what happened, but not 100% sure. We are in pain, but our faith in God and the support that we have surrounding us. Time will heal our hearts, but we will always miss not having our Fiona girl to hold and love.
I think I am writing this not to invoke sympathy, but so that I can come back in the future and see where I have grown from this point I time.
My heart swells with the thoug
This one is for the one's who have bought a kilt, but have yet to step up and step out into the world. Maybe you picked up that kilt at a renaissance faire or a highland games, so you would blend in or so you could be part of the crowd, and you plan on wearing it again when you go back. Meanwhile you have a kilt hanging in the closet begging to be worn, to be seen, why pay over the top festival prices for a kilt that will be worn once a year?
The time has come for you to enjoy your investment
A close friend of mine has at times referred to me as a confused German because my heritage is Germanic, but I wear the kilt, and for some time she may have been right.
This past weekend my wife and I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural Houston Highland Games Association's Robert Burns Supper. While not our first Burns supper, it was the first large supper we were privileged enough to go to. We saw old friends we hadn't seen in quite some time, ate haggis, and had an enjoyable eveni
Late in the season, but I got to compete today, and d@mn I wish there was more time for the games. I did get bit again, so more training, more lifting, and more kilts are in the future. The time out in the field with the other athletes, the male bonding, encouragement, the off color remarks, and the personal glory are all things that make the games great.
Each man is their own competition, the highland games are one of the ultimate individual sports. Sure there are rankings 1st, 2nd, and 3r
Gentlemen, as experienced kilties we should sheapard those that are new to the brotherhood of wearing kilt wearing. It is fine to crack a smile and have a laugh, but then we should step up and correct any problems that we see. Pleats in the front? Let them know. If they are wearing their sporran wrong, inform them. Let them know so they can wear the kilt proudly and happily. If we really are going to be a brotherhood then we need to be our brothers keeper. Be strong, kilt proudly and watch out f
Back in my dungeon barn tomorrow. Heat, weights, and sweat. Ti e to get rid of the excuses. Then next week I will start training for September 10,Highland Games competition. Will need encouraging from my wife and wouldn't mind some good words from kilted brethren. I need to drop some fat and put on muscle, so a tweak to the diet may be coming shortly. Unfortunately it is more expensive to eat healthy than to not. Need to be strong for the games, and look good for Texas Renaissance Festival in Oc
Just got done enjoying a fine cigar, some whisky, and conversation with an old childhood friend. Kilted, no, but enjoyable anyway.Catching up and talking about old times, was a great way to end a frustrating and busy week of work. When having this kind of entertainment, you lose track of time. Spent 3 hours talking and smoking felt like an hour tops. Whenever you get these chances, take full advantage my friends. We hadn't seen each other in a couple years, but we never skipped a beat. Now for a

Going to be in my Sport Kilt "Team Kilt" With Loud MacLeod pleats. So anybody in the Richmond/Rosenberg, Sugarland area see us out and about say howdy. If I find anything will be posting pictures Saturday evening or Sunday.
Had a great day with best friends shopping, eating, and smoking. Only p
