Hi fellow Georgians! I'm here in Sweaty Snellville - Lord, take the hot and humid weather away, please!

Amazing that I'm so close to Stone Mountain (yes, I can see it from the end of my street) and I still haven't been to the Highland Games. I am going to make a gallant effort to get there this year.

One thing I wanted to let y'all know about is the North Georgia Celtic Festival, just in case you didn't realize it was coming up. It's the 23 and 24th of this month. Here's the website


http://www.emeraldrose.com/ngcf/

If you go, please make sure you see The Lost Boys :-) They are friends of ours and incredibly entertaining.

See y'all on the forum later.

Hey, I've just heard from a long-time artist friend of mine, Keith Dunn, who has become quite a fiddler in the last several years. He will be at the games this year to attend the fiddler's workshops, but he says his here Alasdair Fraser is going to be there this year! Wow, would I ever love to see Alasdair play in person - he is truly awesome.

Alasdair Fraser

The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

OK brother and sistel celts, we're a month away from the Stone Mountain Highland Games. Who's going to "take charge" and coordinate a CelticRadio Reunion there?

Like Saturday afternoon, around 2 pm, at the _____ tent?

Just no haggis tasting competitions, OK?

How about the Donnachaidh tent, since our friend here will be there?

And don't worry, no haggis required. laugh.gif

Hi everyone.

If you would like to meet at the Donnachaidh Tent that would be great. I'll be between the Scottish Country Dancing Stage and Clan Donnachaidh's tent. I have a motor mouth so it will be easy to spot me. I look forward to meeting everyone. BTW 2:00 is a good time.

Hi everyone,

We're still planning on coming to the Games on Saturday! Our daughter's boyfriend celebrates his birthday on Sunday, so as a gift we're bringing him to the Games as well... He's a sweet kid and she's crazy about him, so y'all be nice! wink.gif

Hopefully son and new daughter-in-law will be able to come along with us. This will be a great family event. Gwenlee, want us all to come cheer for you at your dance competition?? We're a loud bunch!

Hi Siobhan

I don't compete, we do demos so I'm hoping you come over and join us in dance when we have audience participation.

I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Hey, any excuse will do! clap.gif clap.gif lookaround.gif punk.gif punk.gif

Don't know about doin' any dancing myself, though, I think I frightened our guests at our son's wedding reception. We went to a Christian pop music concert last weekend, and when some of our wedding guests saw me coming they yelled "HEY SUSAN" and then started jumping up and down. Guess they remember the Groom & Mom Dance mosh pit.

Siobhan if you can skip you can do a dance step. We don't do anything complicated for the audience but the seem to enjoy the dances. I have to start packing for the games. The pop-up is clean, and now all I have to do is pack up. I'll be at the Stone Mountain camping out with some friends and fellow Clan members. So if anyone is camping come by. I'll be at a dance workshop on Friday and I won't get back until about 4 PM. I'm looking forward to the games and meeting some of you.

I may not be able to get on the forum tomorrow before I leave for Stone Mountain. But I want to let everyone know again that I'll be there all weekend between the Donnachaidh tent and the Scottish Country Dancing stage. I hope all of you stop by and say hello.

I'll be coming to the Games on Saturday with my husband, daughter and her boyfriend. Our son & new daughter-in-law can't make it, which is a shame because it would be easy to spot us then (he is 6'8" and a redhead, and she has a wonderful laugh that turns heads!)

Hubby and I will have on black Donnachaidh shirts, and I think I may wear a name label that says Siobhan - so if you spot me, come up and introduce yourself!

Hope this nice Georgia weather lasts thru the weekend...

Hi everyone

I had a great time at the Stone Mountain Games. I got to meet SB and her family. She and her family are so very nice. I think CR, SB and I could pass for sisters. I thought we had a lot in common.

I missed meeting all of you guys that thought about coming. But I know things happen. Perhaps next year you can come to the games and enjoy the fellowship and the good food we have at the tent

We DID look like sisters: both of us are short and red-headed!! biggrin.gif Gwenlee, it was such a pleasure to meet you and your dear family. My crew had a great day and we all decided on the way home that the Highland Games are going to be an annual event for us all. Hopefully next year, son & daughter-in-law will be able to attend too.

I must confess on days like Saturday I envy those who have a direct Scottish connection; I wish I could wear a sash or a kilt like Gwenlee and many other gals did, proudly proclaiming their ancestry. Mmmmm, I think I'll look in my family history materials tonight and see if I can't come up with a connection...

SB, about all the Daniels I know are MacDaniels in my area. It wouldn't hurt to do some back tracking! You just never know! biggrin.gif
