Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Every time his wife asks what's the occasion? I usually just shrugged it off with a it was hot today, no reason, Just felt like it. It's my birthday (it was actually my birthday on the one visit.) I often get the same question, and usually reply that I enjoy the sense of freedom. People also ask, "...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Two weeks ago, for the first time since ditching my previous collection (you can read about that in another thread) I bought a skirt - brown dyed denim, knee length with an inverted V-shaped notch at the left knee. I decided to try it out last Saturday. Due to previously documented spousal resistanc...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Various errands yesterday morning then shopping afternoon, with my wife, wearing black value kilt with black hose (socks, not tights - though I sometimes do that as well). Lady in Marks and Spencer commented "I'm loving the kilt. My children are wearing theirs today." Also positive comments in Tesco...

This discussion (like so many other "binary" arguments) is pointless. Whatever happened to the mute conversation button?

Re: Out in Left Field - Food for Thought

I think he means judging by their own view of right and wrong (possibly regurgitated from their parents or their community). For example, depending on where you lived in the UK and what work you did, in the 1980s, your politics were largely fixed. This is shown particularly in relation to the Miners...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Yesterday visited East Lothian Community Hospital to have a 24hr heart monitor fitted. I wore charcoal gray denim Union Kilt with blue & red check cotton shirt and Robbie Dye [1] jumpe, black fleece lined tights and brown Rieker boots. Nice inconsequential chart with the technician who fitted the de...

Re: The predictive mind

Even the best of us can fall prey to this phenomenon. We recently met up with friends. Their elder son had returned to his university town to meet some friends. On the journey home he made a video call to his mum and asked for a brief chat with us. He had bought a new t-shirt : a kind of black and w...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

I play in a brass band, and we have not met for rehearsal since March, just after we won the Scottish Regional Championship in section 4. We were due to travel last weekend to Chelthenham to compete in the National Finals. These were cancelled, and it was announced last week that the Regional contes...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

We led our first indoor worship service for six months. More people came than we expected, socially distanced, wearing masks and not permitted to sing. However, they all seemed pleased to be able to meet. We are song it once a month for now as there are some who cannot come and therefore need to se...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

Thanks KS. Another good day yesterday. Following official duties [1] I changed before lunch into the same outfit. After our weekly family Zoom session, we went for a walk and no comment was made. Honesty compels me to note that my wife has a visual impairment, so it's possible she didn't see clearly...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

The weather today was really cold and wet, with steady and sometimes heavy rain all day. I spent the whole day in black casual Tartanista kilt with 200 denier tights and brown Rieker boots. The kilt gives freedom of movement, but in the rain the tights are warmer that socks with bare knees, and the ...
