My boys gave me a copy of the remastered Sgt. Pepper's. I had a mono version of it when it was new.
Younger son will be making us a shrimp/pasta meal later today. My real Father's Day present was his help with the installation of a new range hood yesterday.

Yes. He was born and raised in Scotland. I have some happy memories of proudly watching him, dressed in full regalia, march in parades. He spent hours playing his chanter, and I still have his pipe sheet music.

I currently live in a neighborhood where there are two pipers who practice about twice a week in their backyards. I don't know why, but when they play it send chills up my spine.

I hope they are good chills and not by association with funerals!
I become misty-eyed when I hear "Scotland the Brave" or "Going Home."
