Fulfilling Kilted Requests...

When I first announced that I had acquired a kilt, Will Brown took me to task for not having the accoutrements (am I allowed to use French words to describe the accessories that go with a kilt?):
Now all you need is the 4" wide belt, blue socks and a big girls blouse. Maybe some buckles on your boots too.

I already gave money for Stingrays effort, but I'm not broke quite yet; go for it Jay!
Here ya go, Will:

To. The. Nines.

Got the belt, blue-green socks, and the "big girls blouse". Sorry, don't have buckles for my boots though. I thought the broadsword might make up for that, though... This enough for you, Will? Every little bit helps, and I am not above looking a little silly (or a lot silly, for the right donation!) to help the cause. And beat AD and Caleb, because I'm one competitive SOB.

Now, Ambulance Driver has gone and kicked it up a notch and brought his very cute daughter into the fundraising effort. What he's forgotten, apparently, is that I have 2X the spawn he has; while mine are a little older, they're still very cute - and in the case of BabyGirl G. especially, full of surprises. Look for something... unique... tomorrow.

And, as always, donations can be made at www.pcf.org/kilted7 or my Kilted to Kick Cancer Team Page.

There's five days left - that's five more chances to make JayG your plaything for the right donation...

That is all.

Does your Sporran conceal carry? Not trying to be offensive, but the shirt makes you look like half Scottish Highlander and half Pirate. This is a kilt worn as formal wear http://i.imgur.com/zmceR.jpg note the lack of buckles on the shoes, which I am certain are not part of the dress rather the open top ones are.

Uh... Jay? You look really really annoyed in that picture... AAAAGGGH! DON'T EAT ME!

Jay G said...

Anon,

Concealed means concealed. There may or may not have been a Ruger LC9 in that sporran...

And no offense taken - that shirt's actually a pirate/ruffian shirt to begin with, so actually you're complimenting my wife's handiwork.

No dirk? Not even a bayonet? I am the disappoint.

Jay G said...

I kinda thought the FULL METER BROADSWORD might cover the stabby...

Considering the aid and support the French gave Bonnie Prince Charlie, aye, it's alright if you do.

Dave H said...

Yeah, I want to see you carve a ham with that broadsword. (grin)

Will Brown said...

And here's a tenner on your Livestrong tab too! Who knew dressing up so silly paid so poorly?

Jay G said...

Will, seriously, thank you. If everyone that got a chuckle out of that picture dropped a tenner, I'd be over my goal right now!

Will Brown said...

We all have to have goals Jay.
