Spring Has Sprung

The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. And the neighborhood bagpiper is warming up.

All is well in Grad School Town. . .

You have to have the right attitude to live in a college town, bagpipers and all. And I think you have it, FP!

I think I will make it my quest this summer to catch the neighborhood bagpiper in action. Shouldn't be too hard.

Oh, I remember the bagpiper! Wasn't he there before?

Yup. Same bagpiper. Ahhh, spring.

Come to think of it .... we have a bagpiper living two doors down. Fortunately, he doesn't seem to play that much. And this is England. It's too rainy and cold to sit outside / have your windows open on too many days of the year.

And the roof, I imagine, is no longer dripping.

The roof is fixed, and the landlady came in and spritzed stuff on the mold stain that made it go bye-bye. I'll move the bookcase back in there tonight or tomorrow.

It is astounding just how far the sound of a bagpipe carries.

Is the bagpiper any good?

Unfortunately, no.

Oh. That's too bad. Because a good bagpiper is actually worth opening the windows for.

True. I love a good bagpiper. There's a bagpiper at the market most Saturdays, and that's always a treat. And one of my dancing pals is a bagpiper. He piped for the Grand March at our last ball. But the neighborhood bagpiper is not nearly of the same caliber as these guys.

Catching up--I hope you enjoy the bagpipes and that this guy plays well. Personally, I'd like it. I think. :-)

I'd enjoy the bagpipes more if the bagpiper were better. He's not especially good. You'd much prefer the bagpiper at Saturday market.
