Hi Tim
Nice to find out about you. Your work with the homeless sounds rewarding.Scottish and Irish stories are close to my heart. I wrote a Scottish story about a young lad who learns how to play his nose like a bagpipe and ends up winning the Highland Games bagpipe competition. Maybe I'll get to tell it to you sometime.

Have a braw bricht moonlicht nicht,

My pleasure, "Tin" Tim of the sideways smiley! As to your profile, aside from it helping folks here get to know you better, it's free advertising on the internet. Participation here helps make you more visible.

Welcome Tim!
It's interesting that you request came to me on a day when I was away telling at the 161st Highland Games of the St. Andrew's Society of Detroit. It's a little over a year since we lost the Scottish storyteller, Bob Reay, who started our local group telling at the annual Highland Games. He is still missed, but it's great to share the traditions of Scottish stories.
