Paula, I'm a handcrafted soap vendor at our local Farmer's Market and today they had a bagpiper walking up and down the aisles playing. It was very festive and I loved it. Since I listened to your latest podcast the evening prior, I was paying close attention to his dress when he walked past my tent. Thanks for a interesting podcast...learned a few things and now have a new appreciation. Thanks! Rebecca
