Lurching Toward Epiphany: Day Five

On the fifth day of Christmas, Dolores gave to me

highlandfling

five Highland Flings,
four letter words,
three clenched men,
two hurtled jugs,
and a party that lasted 'til three.

You are delightfully naughty.

Dolores is going to share those pictures, right?

Kim said...

Oh. My. Goodness.

Too funny, Franklin - just too funny!

Geek Knitter said...

Oh. My. Gracious.

Upskirt kilt shots? Dolores, you brazen creature!

I'm totally jealous *I* wasn't there...cuz I'd totally be doing that...sigh.

I was once totally captivated by a Highland pipe band warming up before a village rugby match. Oh, the kilts, the kilts! (And the rugby players weren't bad, either...)

It appears Harry has recuperated!

And, my DH delivered a bus and picked up another one in Smock, PA today. I told him about your Grandmother and the museum there.

(laughing too hysterically to type) There is now wine all over my screen, keyboard- the whole bit. (love the interested/inquisitive look on Harry's face)

Rene said...

Harry's expression just makes it. Love these!

(insert wolf whistle here)

Men in kilts, h'ray!

I will never never never ever remember the "real" words now because these are forever tattooed on my brain! Day five - Dah dah dah Dah! I cannot wait.

My word verificiation is "boynisse" and THAT says it all.

You are wonderful. Please keep us humming along.

Hee hee hee! Just remember what my DH says whenever someone asks what's worn under his kilt - "Everything down there is in perfect working order! Nothing worn at all!"

;-)

Debby said...

Love it! Hilarious!

inkberryblue said...

Wanton whimsy...I'm loving these!
You are so clever, Franklin.
Happy New Year!

I can imagine leaping over a sheep instead of claymores would be a more difficult endeavor. It certainly would make for fine looking calves for those kilt hose.

Boxers. Tartan.

mad angel said...

Well, well, well. Looky what we have on Day Five! I might be willing to duke it out with Dolores for THAT prize. Kilts and nice legs...mmmmmm...

How about a Guys with Yarn and Kilts calendar for 2010?

FugueStateKnits said...

I might've known that it would be DOLORES who finally disclosed the Secret of the Ages:)

God rest ye, merry gentle man!

Eryka Jackson said...

Oh man, she is too funny! I love the little skein of yarn!

dale-harriet said...

One can only assume, from Dolores' -- *aspect* - that the merry dancers are "regimental"---ah, reminds me of me auld days at Macalester College. Gave a whole new meaning to "college education", I can tell you. (I really AM tickled with our new President -- but one can imagine how it all would've been, had Dolores taken the day {sigh}.) Hmmm....my "word" is singularly appropriate, Scottish accent and all: "wearr". Good 'un, laddie.

This is just the very best!

Franklin, I checked out "The Panopticon" after receiving "It Itches". Your book and your blog has helped relieved some of my S.A.D.--Delores actually made me laugh when all I felt like doing was cry my eyes out for no reason. I've made myself a private "happy book" (just a journal only for my own use) for my darkest days and Delores is a welcome site! Looking forward to Day Six through Twelve!
Have a very happy New Year!

Occasion for immoderate laughter...
