The Kilted Crew

The reception had started and it was time for the father/daughter first dance. Keep in mind, TGOO was clad in kilt and other attire known to go with said kilt, such as … his sporran. For those not in the know, the sporran is that little purse the Scots wear in front of their kilt.

TGOO is particularly proud of his sporran. It is that of a fox. He named it Mulder. Mulder gets better care than most live animals, of that I am sure. When he is put safely away in his special box, little blue plastic Dixie cups are put upon each ear to assist in keeping their shape… keeping them pointy and suitably fluffy, as fox’s ears are to be.

And so the time comes for the dance and Morrigan gets on the dance floor with TGOO and I hear her say before she steps too close, “Heh. I don’t know about that fox, Dad…”

Fox nose and all.

He laughed and quickly shifted Mulder to the side where they commenced dancing.

One of the oddest things I heard was from Bones. As I posted before, Mr. T was the only child to step up to wear the kilt, complete with mini-sporran and plastic Sgian Dubh.

The tables for the reception were decorated with little red and clear glass hearts, scattered about the center piece. Boned picked up a few to keep.

The next morning I said to Bones as I was nuzzling in his neck kissing on his cheek, trying to get his mosty toasty little body to wake up so we could head back home, “I’ve packed up your stuff, son.”

He looked at me and said “Wait. Where are my hearts? Oh that’s right. T kept them for me in his sporran.”

Never did I ever expect any of my kids to even know what a sporran was, except they do know Mulder, let alone use one or reference their brother storing stuff in one for them. It was just kind of funny…

Bones is a handsome bairn in that kilt. I trust the wedding was everything Morrigan dreamed it would be. My congratulations and best wishes to all y'all.

What a handsome young man....how old is he? I've got a daughter, AND we have Scottish roots too! (Stuart)

I just want to hug him! Handsome smoochy fella!

That looks like a Stuart tartan... Brenna has a cloak that we picked up in Ireland and it is that plaid.

I loves me a laddie in a kilt. And the named sporran- your dad is a hoot! I, too, noticed the Fox Mulder reference... Brilliant!
