Soon, the bags will be packed, the passports clutched, and the flying will begin. Touch down here for nine days. We will be in the Orkney Islands, but not the Shetlands or Fair Isles. Perhaps we can meet a North Ronaldsay sheep, though. The question is, will DS1, DS2 & DS3 (Kille's brother Alpha, Kille's brother Beta and Kille's brother Gamma) get kilts? Are there bagpipes soon to appear on my walls? DD (Kille) and Kille's Brother Gamma are going with, or is it that I am going with them since I am one of the chaperones for this trip???
