Almost a ceilidh!

Ah, true. We did have a square dancer in our midst - if that counts. There were, in fact, two bagpipe bands practising at the same time.
Much better than when l lived in Ringwood and my house backed onto Jubilee Park, the site of the annual Scottish festival. There was a pipe band contest each year and around 40 bands would line up behind my back fence and tune up their instruments. I soon learnt to evacuate on that weekend. Even my pet rabbit used to have his paws over his ears.

Poor bunny! 15 years ago I lived in a unit next door to a middle-aged gentleman who was obviously recently separated from his spouse and, now living alone, had decided to take up the bagpipes...

Square dancer... I thought they were extinct.

BTW - rabbit's name was Bunny.

Invis - not in BKV. Fertile ground for seeking a new partner.

I think Mr Bagpipes might have briefly hoped I would be a new partner (he religiously washed his car every Sunday, even driving it on to the front lawn which tenants were not allowed to do - but one week he also washed mine without consulting me first, and I was horrified so ended the friendship).

Well, you certainly missed out there! He might have been a good cook and a masseuse as well.

Don't think he'd had G's charm!

Poor G. That's an awfully high expectation to live up to!

Apparently Geoff used to play the sax in high school. I kinda wish I'd known him then because that would have been cute, but he was a year 8 when I was a year 12!
