The pipes are calling...

Whew! July is ALWAYS my busiest month...camping trips, family visits, and the biggest Highland Games in the area where I am a volunteer. I may not be able to post much so here's a few bagpipe jokes to tide you over...

Q: Why do bagpipers walk when they play?

A: To get away from the noise.

Q: What's the only thing worse than a bagpiper?

A: Good question. We're still trying to find out too.

I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made object never equaled the purity of sound achieved by the pig.

~ Alfred Hitchcock

Q. How do you get two bagpipes to play a perfect unison?

A. Shoot one.

Q. What's the difference between a bagpipe and an onion?

A. No one cries when you chop up an bagpipe.

Frankly, I love the music of the pipes! Stay cool this month!

What's worse than one bagpiper? Two!

Sorry- not a big fan of the pipes even though I was born and live in Scotland! We have annual pipeband championships here where I live and all the bands come piping along the main street at the end!

Enjoy your highland games!

I have loved the bag pipes since I was little!! When my grandfather passed away he was piped in and out of the church and the cemetary...I was a wreck and not from grief...the bag pipes just haunt me to the middle of my soul....
