Go get a Scotsman

I came across this late last night, and there’s just something about a bagpipe that pulls at my insides.

It could also be something to do with ancestry? I do have blood ties on my mother’s Sexsmith (paternal) and McCartan (maternal) side to the British-Irish Isles. From anything I’ve read that relates to where our family came from, however, it appears to suggest England and Ireland mainly. Alas, no Scotland. Though I have fond childhood memories of venturing parts of Scotland. Perhaps, then, the bagpipes are that of nostalgia.
