Re: My first Highland Festival

Hi Nancy-
Not sure why you and several others got my last message with no body. I apoligize to those who thought this glib and not informative. (I got a few of those letters as well, probably from the Gunn family masquerading as stalwart Sinclairs.) But for those who didn't get to read it, and for those who think we are a pretty funny bunch, and through no fault of my own here it is one more time.

Hi, I just recently joined Clan Gunn then found I was Qualified to be a
  Sinclair too. Today I went to the Alma,Michigan  Highland Festival. My kids
  were all excited because we finally got to wear our Gunn badges and meet
  the clan. While there we stopped in at the Sinclair tent and met some very
  nice ladies, One from Harrison MI., and one from Saginaw, MI..
  The kids were waiting all day to meet up with the other Gunn clan members
  and march in the parade of tartans. Finally the Gunns got there and we went
  over, all excited, to meet them and... BIG LETDOWN. the Gunns were not nice
  at all. The kids were very let down and decided we need to melt down the
  Gunn badges and be Sinclairs. I think I agree. Other than that it was a lot
  of fun with the bands, dancers, sheep dogs etc...

Dear Nancy-

Thats probably why there is a nationwide effort to ban gunns. They really aren't very nice! But each and every Sinclair in the world is an individual gem of, kindness, gentility, and good will. That's why you will find fewer and fewer  gunns in the movies and more and more Sinclairs. I rest my case.
And now that I have reread this, everybody duck because I must add.
. . .If you melt down gunn badges can you forge them into Plowman shares? (sorry!)
