Bonnie Portmore

I got a call yesterday for a funeral tomorrow and they requested I play a favorite song of the deceased. Usually I cringe because most times, the song is something that absolutely will not bend...

Re: Metal chanters?

Re: Piping After Molar Extraction - Abscess Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Played the practice chanter and mouth blown border pipes today. Everything felt fine. Haven't had any pain in a few days.

Re: Piping After Molar Extraction - Abscess Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Thanks! One of the things I'm mixed relieved and frustrated is a job in the garden that involves a lot of heavy lifting and digging. I was specifically warned against the strain of bending over with...

Piping After Molar Extraction - Abscess Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Re: A NYT bestselling author in our midst

In Ballad, she depicts the young piper James as an arrogant smarta$$. Now where would she get an idea like that. :woot:

Re: A NYT bestselling author in our midst

This is really weird. A couple of months ago, I picked up her book Lament in the free bin at my library on a whim without even reading the synopsis. Something just told me to. I read that and ended...
