Tatoo clearly means something different in South Africa than it does in America! As soon as I saw that you were in some sort of arena, I wondered if it was some kind of mass inking lol.

I would have LOVED to see the dancing and listen to the music. Bet it was magnificant!

WOW that looks like a fabulous day out! I love the pics especially the one of Braveheart in his kilt. LOL

BTW I received my competition prize from you today - the lovely ring and all the other goodies you enclosed - thankyou so much. xx

I love the look of Haggis and Bong which reminds me,I need to re-upload my clips of 'The Dangleberries' to YouTube.

Hope you don't mind the link Gillian

Nothing in the world sounds like the skirling of the pipes, and if they're in mass formation, it is a total goose-bump fest. Nae wonder the sassenachs used to feed us into battle first...the pipes would make any army run fer cover...

Kewl pics...

@Accidental's (like this one) are modelled on the annual Edinburgh Tattoo in Scotland, usually held around the end of August which, if I'm not mistaken, is held at the end of the Fringe Festival. Now THAT is an experience debauchery and fun for a whole month!
