We always try to say how very fortunate we are and blessed in a Hello Magazine type way and we never ever take the kindness of our fans/followers for granted, but sometimes they blow us away in ways that we just cannot find words to express ……
Yesterday, was one of those blown away days, The Lovely Lynda, who is the daughter of Winnie, our adopted Grandma, sent us a Scottish outfit each and a pair of bagpipes! She said that through reading our adventures she realised that both Darrell and I had a great sense of occasion and knew as soon as she saw the outfits that they screamed Monkey and Darrell by the truck load.
Well, when we removed the tissue paper wrapping we fell silent, overwhelmed with emotion.
“I am so overcome, I just don’t know where to put myself “ said Darrell as he stroked his sporran. He has always, always, always wanted a kilt and all the paraphernalia that went with one, but never in his wildest dreams did he imagine that one day he would actually own and be able wear one. He disappeared for a while to the bathroom where I could hear him blowing his nose very noisily.
However, when he returned, composed, his clothes went flying in all directions and he was in his kilt faster than you could say Mahogmanay ….. and if I may say so myself, when he had finished adjusting his bits he had never looked more handsome
He was so excited, bless him and started to pretend to ask a bonnie wee lassie if she would care to take his arm and accompany him for a wee reel ! What is he like?
I followed suit and donned my outfit too. It felt wonderful, and I started to find myself talking like Billy Connolly and developed an “Och” at the start of all my sentences.
We couldn’t help but admire each others appearance and both dreamed of this years New Years Eve and Burns Night Piping in the Haggis, and how they will be much more romantic occasions now that we have the authentic attire in which to partake in them.
And before you think about asking …… let us both just say a gentlemen NEVER discusses what is under his kilt!
Thank You Lynda xxxx you’ve made two monkeys VERY VERY happy xxx
