I suppose it was only a matter of time before I had a comic strip set in Scotland! If you haven't been before, Edinburgh is a great place to start. It is very tourist friendly and has a lot of captivating sights :)

I wonder if this is going to tick you or anybody else off by saying this...I've never liked the bagpipes very much as a musical instrument. Same reason why I'm no fan of the kazoo; just don't particularly like that sound! I will say, although I'm not a bagpipe fan, I would gladly take them over the vuvuzela XD (Good heavens, what was Youtube thinking by cashing in on the sudden vuvuzela craze thanks to the World Cup a few years ago by giving you the option to play that angry bee-esque drone over EVERY single video! :D)

I have some Scottish roots, but I've sadly never set foot in the British isles. Only time I've ever visited a place outside the US is when my folks went to Tijuana, Mexico when I was a small child...I've also been near the Canadian border (in Upper New York; there's actually a town called MEXICO not far from the border! Somebody had a sense of humor when they named that town), but not actually in Canada itself. Yes...I'm not a very worldly person :(

Bagpipes are fun for about five seconds before they get a bit grating :P

Nothing's worn beneath the kilt! It's a' as good as new!

But of course it is, Edinburgh is to Scotland, what London is to England.

And it's not a Scotland trip without someone Question a Scottish Stereotype

Setting a strip in your home country, eh? Sweet! I wonder what Linda means by the legend of the kilt.
FreyFox 18th Nov 2016, 1:51 AM edit delete reply
Britain as a whole is my home country, Scotland is my home constituent country XD

Oh and one another thing that might sound interesting. I'm not sure if she still does it, but one of my sisters worked on the lighting for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tatoo Festival.

I saw the Tattoo Festival in 2003. Was an excellent show :)

Chances are my sister did the lighting effects for that one. ;)

So, is it true what they say about a True Scotsman's kilt?
FreyFox 18th Nov 2016, 1:52 AM edit delete reply
It depends on the individual.
D'Otter 18th Nov 2016, 7:32 PM edit delete reply
Aye, it's made o' wool!

I could tell ya the answer to that, but then you'd have to stay with the piper forever.

I know the answer, but I won't say.

Oops, my apologies. I mistakenly thought my other reply got canned.

That's great Scotland gets involved in the Transmission story. :D

I don't know what the "pay the piper" custom is.
