This weekend we went to the Highland Games in Uxbridge!
It was pouring rain most of the day which further reinforces my theory that if you gather enough Scottish people together, it will rain. The higher the ratio of Scottish to everyone else, the higher the odds of rain....I kept my wedding to 40:60 Scottish:everyone else...the odds were in my favour and it did not rain! On the other hand I have never been to a Highland Games that didn't invoke rain. I have been soaked while singing Scotland the Brave more times than I can count!
Another interesting fact....Scottish people are not bothered enough to give up their seats in the beer garden or leave an event just because of a little
Some country dancing - similar to a square dance.
Pipe bands were playing all over the place at random times in the middle of intersections - verry cool!
This event has the only Scottish all breed dog competition in North America (or so we were told). The Dandie Dinmont Terriers are the sweetest dogs - when you pick them up they just flop in your arms - they LOVE cuddles!
