Second, let's say I *was* thinking about it as a present. A present is supposed to be a SURPRISE, right?
First let me say welcome! Good to have you. It is interesting. When people ask me what I want for Christmas, birthday or whatever, I tell them nothing. I believe that a gift should be from the heart. If you really want to give someone a gift, you should know them well enough to know WHAT to give! Spot on Kahlan Eyre, and again welcome!
Without order nothing can exist - without chaos nothing can evolve.
Hi Rosie! Welcome to CR! SO glad you found us! You'll not find a ncier group of people anywhere on the net to chat with! So jump right on in and have fun! I've never had on a kilt, though my brother cut and pasted my face on a picture of a guy in a kilt and it looked AWFUL! Still recuperating form that one!
Slàn agus beannachd, Allen R. Alderman
'S i Alba tìr mo chridhe. 'S i Gàidhlig cànan m' anama. Scotland is the land of my heart. Gaelic is the language of my soul.
Wear the kilt! I always receive kind remarks from the ladies, and encouraging comments from the lads! Pick the tartan you like the most. There are no tartan police out there, and a reading of the history of tartans would cause many to question whether they are truly, historically affiliated with a clan. My only problem with the kilt is my inability to wear it while on my motorcycle...
While we were at Bethlehem over the weekend, we ran into Rocky, Kelly and crew, from USA Kilts http://www.usakilts.com/ . Besides being a fun bunch, they took the time to explain the differences in how a kilt is made, materials used and something that is a one size fits all is not the same as a custom made kilt.
Since Rocky and Kelly are long time listeners of CR, give them a buzz and see if they can take care of your needs. Let them know that you heard about them from CR.
