Of Tomfoolery

I'm running low on pics (I really have to take some photographs over the weekend), and haven't been feeling well the last couple of days (I ended up with a cold), so I thought I'd add a meme to my bagpipes shot from a couple of days ago. I'll have something appropriate for Robbie Burns Day tomorrow. 


You just know that somewhere, someone has played that song on the pipes. Freddie Mercury would be spinning over in his grave.

  4. I think one must grow up in the midst of bagpipes to appreciate them, like my friends Aimee and Grace. If you threatened me with playing the bagpipes I'd surrender right away. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.

  5. @Tomas: oh, I am, I love Scottish culture and the pipes!

    @Ciel: I thought of the weirdest choice one could pick for the pipes. It was this or I'm Henry the Eighth I Am.

    @Marianne: I'm not a very patient patient when it comes to being sick!

    @Aimee: I can just see a highland pipes and drums band practicing now for a beat retreat ceremony.

    @Grace: "I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me..."

    @Lowell: thanks!

  12. Can't say BR is a favorite on the pipes. But do love a good bagpipe. Drives Elenka crazy.

  13. @Norma: I'm Henry The Eighth I Am would sound awful no matter how it's performed.

    @Tex: I'm drinking lots of tea today.

    @Sharon: I was worse on Thursday.

    @VP: I wonder what Freddie would say about that notion.

    @Gracita: thanks for stopping in!

    @Judy: I'm working on it.

    @Lois: I hope so too.

  15. Very funny, I actually laughed out loud though I do love the sound of the bagpipes. Feel better soon, hot toddy sounds in order. Or if you don't want the whisky in it just hot water, lemon juice, honey to taste and a teaspoon of grated ginger can be very comforting.

  17. Hope you are feeling better soon. I know that feeling of being low on photos. Or sometimes, it just seems like there isn't anything you want to post. I took 13,000 photos last year. How can I be low? Have a good rest of the weekend!

  19. @Jen: thank you!

    @Red: I hope it breaks soon!

    @RedPat: today's been up and down on that front.

    @Denise: I've had hot toddys before when I've had colds. I've been feeding this one with tea. That helps.

    @Country Gal: thank you!

    @Janis: there's always archives to search if need be!

    @Kay: that never goes away!

  24. Love the idea of regurgitating - so to speak - a photo and giving it a font makover. Bohemian Rhapsody - love it. Bagpipes - love them after the tune up. Together? ummmm... dunno.
