He "Kilt" the audience....Of course there was a McDonald's presence at the 37th annual Scottish Games & Highland Gathering at Boone Hall.
There was the sponsorship booth with the double arches but also the tale sung by internationally famed Scottish folk singer Alex Beaton about the Massacre of the McDonald Clan by the Campbell's at Glencoe.
My blog often involves local music so his rich baritone voice and guitar work needed to be noted.
Tossing of the Caber was another event that drew lots of interest.
And well it should.
The Caber looks like a 16' telephone pole - it takes 4 people to bring it to the thrower - and weighs between 80 and 130 pounds.
These burly fellows hefted it by the "small" end, got it balanced and then ran forward.
The "toss" was to make it bounce on the heavy end and then fall after flipping so the small end faced away from them. Yikes.
My cousin is part of the Ross Clan and comes down from Camden. She invited me to join her in their tent for the gathering.
I declined again to have some Haggis, which I tried in Scotland many years ago, but missed an opportunity to try a deep-fried Scottish Egg.
