Reminds me of a poem by Lewis Carroll. A very strange one called "Little Birds" about surreal things little birds do. The verse goes

"Little Birds are playing
Bagpipes on the shore
where the tourists snore.
"Thanks!" they cry, "Tis thrilling
Take, oh take this shilling!
Let us have no more!"

The definition of a gentlemen: a man who knows how to play the bagpipes, but doesn't!
Seriously though, I love the bagpipes, absolutely LOVE THEM.
Do you know the Mull of Kintyre song by Paul McCartney? I didn't hear it until 1985 and I don't understand why it wasn't a hit in the USA. I love that song.

The thing is...I'd pay. I love the bagpipes!

Jenny, I'll take the shilling!

Kay, Bagpipes are great!

Lee, Of course, you're musical!

Lee said...

Kay G...Wow! How strange Mull of Kintyre wasn't a hit in the was a huge hit here Down Under. I've a funny story attached to that song...I won't take up space here in Adullamite's blog, but I must write about it in my own one day that you've brought it to my mind. :)

There's a chap who plays on Westminster Bridge that should have this sign.
