      Before he picks a new chanter, he's going to want to know what the best one is. So he'll go onto the Bob Dunsire Forums. Once there, he'll start a thread asking the difference between ABW and Poly...



      Great post, Andrew! Brought back some great memories of story time with the little girl.
      Would you say I have a plethora of piñatas?

              How about "Oh the places you'll D-throw"

              or "Oh the places you'll blow"
              "Tha ceol 'sna maidean, Ma bheir thus' as e. (Ailean Ban, Cinn t-Saile)

              "There's music in the sticks, If you can draw it out." (Alan Bain, Kintail and Edinburgh)

                from Andrew Lenz

                If you give a piper a new chanter reed,
                he's going to ask for the latest chanter.


                And to paraphrase Benjamin Franklin:

                "And all for the sake... of a new chanter reed!"

                  Well done, all. This thread really brought a smile today. Remembering all the kid's books alluded to in the posts.

                    Before you start fixing problems with your reeds, check to see if the bag or stocks are leaking.
