    Missed it by that much....

    I was gone most of the day today, and so was anyone else that could have signed, so checking my mail I find a USPS orange ticket saying attempted delivery point of origin CANADA! Could it be? I Think so! My B&S Ancient Lindsay!!!

    One more day, oh dear Lord, just one more day.........

    (sorry been having that tune run around in my head)

    What? You aren't out trying to stop every USPS van you see driving down the street? Heck - you're not even really trying!

    Sorry you missed your kilt!

    Would not have done any good at all, was after five here. The mail comes around one. By the time I got the wee little paper my kilt was safely back at the postal unit. Does say I can pick it up anytime after 8:00 Am....hum take the dogs for a walkies? Or post some month end invoices that got over looked?

    Well the good news is Canada Post didn't loose it on you. Congratulations on the new kilt, remember to get photos tomorrow or it didn't get delivered at all.

    Canada Post did not loose it, my jones is over, but yours wil go on for a bit. The pics after dark in my house come out all yellow and off color. The flash just does not do this tartan justice.

    The Ancient Lindsay I must say competes for color right up there with the IOS, cranbarries and at least three greens, blue and a touch of royal purple, drop dead good looking kilt; if my wife does not like me in it well, might have to get a new wife!

    Any way my plan is to wear it tommorrow and take as many daylight pics as possible. Same time, same station Kilt on!

    Ta DA! Grabbed the camera and took these:

    Ancient Lindsay Apron



    custom made label



    Back pleat shot, I was rushing to get this and some other pics out of the camera, sorry about the rumpled pleats....





    I'm going to take my camera with me and see if I can get some other shots, with me in the kilt. Remember my wife thinks that taking pictures is silly, so I have to find another camera person.

    Oh , I'm a happy man!ith:
