When I ordered traditional Sunday Lunch today ,the waitress informed me that the menu had changed to Easter Sunday Lunch....
Having accepted the offer of this choice from the menu , I was asked if I required beef or chicken.....
So I came up with the obvious reply....." Both , please ".....such is the stress of decision making on the Traditional Day of Rest

I feel I am no longer required to observe the once Traditional Day of Rest....as I am retired. ...Every day is a day of rest for me.....L.O.L.

I'd like to find a supplier of such styles here in the States. Epaulettes lend a sense of gravitas and the extra pocket up front is a big convenience.


Civillian Government Suppliers ,.....Government Surplus Stores , Government Clothing Disposal Stores.......

I do not Know your networking for supply of shirts for Police ,Fire , Coast Guards , Air Traffic control.... Customs Officers , Merchant Navy

Even try Military Officers Tailors.....Some staff may have to buy their own shirts to the Organisation Specification.

All the shirts I have quoted are white ...in U K............Rod

Latest recommendation re Falling over with vertigo....get a District Nurse to clear my ears of dust and wax....Then get a simple
prescription for the vertigo problem......It is perhaps worrying to consider the fatal results of a simple faint and fall....

I met a Gentleman today whilst I was wearing one of my old box pleated Military Kilts....I complimented him on his fine sports jacket...
Not commonly worn these days....I used to wear one to work in the late sixties and early seventies....

The Gentleman enquired " what tartan are you ? "......I replied and explained that my ancestors sailed from Scotland and became
sea traders on the South Coast of England......His response was...." once a Scot ,...Always a Scot "

As I have said before.....If we are going out on the street we must know what we are talking about.....

Cornwall ,...with the Navy , the fishing , the sea trading and the extinct mine workings is a melting pot for ever nation in the World....

Is it really likely that anyone would check a random conversation for historical accuracy?
What is more probable to win hearts and minds, academic discourse or cordial chat?
For the integrity of the thread , I wore my fifth cousin eight times removed of the kilt yesterday.

Wouldn't it have been suffice to mention the clan Mcnaughty? :D

It is always worth while having an intelligent conversation during a casual meeting in Cornwall.....Only 7 1/2 percent of the male population
are forth generation Cornish....the rest of the males have either come to Cornwall with their work or to retire.......

Scotland has also seen many changes over the years......so has the area of the South Coast of England where I lived for many years.......
Why bury one's head in the sand and turn into a welk head ?

This one might be regarded as the flamboyant prodigal of the family. I never got the chance to ask for permission to spread the shot, hence the obscured face.
The photo was taken at our local "Pride" march on Saturday and I felt rather dowdy alongside some of the folks.

BTW the Kilt Police never did show up.
