My Brother

got married in the highlands of Scotland this weekend and made me wear a kilt. There is no Scottish blood in our family, he is simply a McUnusual and romantic person as the shot below might go some way to illustrating. He married his long term girlfriend, Sam, in the garden of a friend’s house. The friends were called Neil and Sally-Anne and the were probably the most hospitable hosts in history. The beer tent was a teepee, and the groom said during his address to the assembled that he was certain that he would be with Sam for the rest of his life; it was tears all round. The whole thing was a splendid combination of formal dress and rock festival hippiness and there was a shock announcement too, of a pregnacy, from my sister. The only thing the Do lacked was a fight, but Neil’s great mate Nigel, who came up from a secret location in the home counties to help, was an MI5 Agent and would have cut out any of that if it had started anyway. I had nothing of any note under my kilt and only a badly edited speech in my sporan.

Bumble and McMe

    Nothing of any note under your kilt? I beg to differ -I believe you had a pair of very cold feet under there half the time. I’m all for kilt-wearing boys, better than a hot water bottle any day.

    Aren’t they handsome, only pity is that Bumble isn’t smiling – his teeth are a rival to Goldie’s.

    I should say Bumble is the name of choice of Steve’s brother. According to the legend, “Sting” was already taken . . .

    My, they really are two handsome guys! I could fancy them myself. Love ‘Bumble’s’ hair. It speaks for itself. It’s shouting “Non-conformist” to the world. I like him without having met him. Obviously, with a misnomer like ‘Bumble’, he can fight. Well, I hope he can.

    Congratulations Bumble and Sam.

    Not that famous mate, only about 19 people a day look at this site and 18 of them are that loony Old Stokie [O.S.] 😉

    You both look like perfectly bona fide Scotsmen. In fact, given a bit of blue make up, Bumble could do Braveheart to perfection.

    Have you given back the kilt yet?
