Men in skirts: Part 2 By tom  

Posted by Thom in , ,

Hi here are some pictures of my pictures of the ball( actually there the Haughts pics I just took them)

Here I am with Emma, and on the left is Chad (Ladner) and THATgirl

From the left: Chad, Maryanna, Thomas, Emma Haught

Here I am with Emma just before the first waltz, Don't ask about the hand gesture I don't get it either........

see the waltz starts right after the grand march, but I forgot to put my dance shoes on, so I had to go to the side and put them on; at which point Mrs. Haught (Emmas mother) got a picture of us.

Heres me again, actually waltzing. hopefully you won't notice how bad I look. and if thats enough of burning the eyes out of your sockets with my pictures of me. here are some of some pretty people.......... I mean the next ones

This is one of our protestant friends Nathan, and the back of the head is a trad Micheal smith

From the left: Nathan Harris, Micheal

There's my Cute little brother in the front dancing with the instructor a Mrs. Blackhall-Peters

And here's our beautiful friend, Ali Sentmanat

Here is some of us in our kilts, don't ask about the leg thing I don't get it either, I didn't realize they actually got a picture of that.

Here I would like to end My parade of pictures the same way we ended the ball with a few rounds of what do you do with a drunken sailor, and The mermaid.

See kilts are awesome. And maybe if y'all are in town in may we can all go to the highland games together. ( or November for the Armond Bayou fall festival)

there are about 80 more picture of the ball that other people have but I can't post them all.
and while were talking about scottish stuff I'll close with a Poem I like( though didn't write)

music first on this earth was heard
in Gaelic accents deep,
When Jubal in his Oxtar
Squeezed the Blether of a sheep.

And of course the Scottish just "borrowed" the idea of the kilt from the léine, an Irish tunic.

Great pictures.

Yestarday a Breton was dressed in a kilt at St Nicolas de Chardonnet.

We had discussed briefly, me and some people I did not know, whether he was Scotsman or not. As I was interested in the question, I went forth and asked if he be Scots or Breton, and Breton was the answer.

Oh, CP: the kilt is NOT a lower part of the tunic, but the cut off part of a belted plaid. Up to 1745 the belted plaid was more common, afterwards it has been cut into two, like kilt below and plaid (smaller than original) hanging from one shoulder, if even as much.

I am not sure the belted plaid was ever worn in Ireland, I think it is a highlanders' feature. But tartan as we know it seems to be younger than the belted plaid.

Bubble, if you don't know what they're talking about, look it up instead of leaving pointless comments. The discussion of plaids stems from the kilts, of course.

Funnily enough, I was wearing a green skirt this morning. My trousers were wet from washing in the shower yesterday, and had to be wrapped in newspapers so I could get them half dry before the shower this morning.

Oh, what is called great kilt here is the plaided belt.

Wikipedia is really not an authoritative source....

Just saying.... :P
