I'll bite to

I'm sure you will look wonderful - I certainly look forward to seeing you
at one of your venues. As for foreigners wearing tartan - until Mel
Gibson - wearing the kilt was something you did for weddings and football
international (Your mothers tartan curtains made a good substitute!) -
Somebody has to keep the traditions alive - as my husband (scottish)
says: Scots don't do Scottish - we leave it to all the foreigners!!!
:>))) - Incidently to go back to the romance theme - I met him in
Denmark, at a Burns Supper, arranged by Danes - in a jewish restaurant.
I did the eightsome with him and afterwards he asked me if it was a
danish country dance!!! - naturally I decided to stick with him to
educate him a little.
