Any Chistmas gigs coming up or what customs do you have for the season?

We have a local Celtic Christmas concert here in town, it attracts about 1500 people. It's a good night with late night sessions afterward!

2 pensioners parties on Thursday, and a visit from the mayor Pipe them in and then a few tunes on the smallpipes, then escape the senile delinquents that want to tell you about their Scottish grandma, actually its a privilage to play for them, they are a very appreciative audience and many have some harrowing wartime stories.

Our 5 Santa Claus parades are done for this year, the kids love the pipes playing these tunes but it is good to be done with them. Put the P3's back away and had the blackwood out as we work on Burn's stuff for next month. Our band practices on Monday's so we miss out on the 24th & 31st and only 2 practices in Jan. till Burns. The band sounded good last night so I hope they keep at it over the holidays.

You wouldn't happen to be a pipe major would you? ;-)
