I am sure I am trying to convince myself that I am still alive — albeit a hopeless cripple on crutches.

St. Patrick’s Day 2019.

‘Outback Steakhouse’ in Bedford, NH.

I must have got some water on my right chin while washing my hands. I am not crying. I should but that will not fix my problems.

This, a Grade 1 band, was THE featured pipe band at the 2015 NH Highland Games at Loon.

They were good and also extremely photogenic. So I ended up taking a TON of pictures.

Sharing a few with you. Enjoy.

The featured pipe band at the 2015 (Scottish) “Highland Games” at Loon appears to the ‘Stuart Highlanders‘ from Bedford, MA — though I could be wrong on this. They are one of the few bands named in the program.

I looked them up — and their name  is vaguley familiar. I am sure they have been at Loon before. BUT it appears that they have at least 3 bands. One is a Grade 1 Band! Their Website, though quite nice, seems to be woefully out-of-date. The last news item is from August 2012. So it is possible that they no longer have a Grade 1 — and it is even conceivable that they have even more bands. So not sure which of these bands will be appearing. IF it is a Grade 1 band that would be special and much appreciated — at least by ME. I don’t think we have had a Grade 1 pipe band in a LONG TIME. Maybe a decade. So this would be something to look forward to.


Here is a link that will get you to the ‘tentative’ 2015 Highland Games schedule — and they better finalize this fast since we are now within a fortnight of the Games starting.

A series of personal lists to share ‘MY New Hampshire’ with any interested reader.

This is not a complete list, not even close, and excludes those prefixed ‘New’, e.g., New London. In alphabetical order.

Writing my earlier post on ‘Portsmouth‘ promoted doing this list today, though it had been on my list of lists to do.
