Lawyers, Guns and Money

Just got home from another lovely night of outdoor concerts in the city. Tonight Celtic performers fronted the orchestra. Several lovely Gaelic choral pieces and the odd bagpipe piece were performed. I couldn’t help thinking how constrained the bagpipes were in front of an orchestra. Pipes are the brass to a Souza march. Pipes are a threat instrument. A row of pipes and a row of drums make for a mighty din to mask the threat cheers of an advancing army. Throw in 50 or so naked Celtic berserkers who would throw themselves against the advancing army to create confusion. My guess is they were successful. Imagine, there you are in the forefront of an advancing army. As you near, the squealing of the pipes and the thunder of the drums grows louder. Suddenly the opposing armies ranks open and out pours 50 or so naked men with axes running straight at you.

As I was driving home one of my favorite songs came on the radio.

“I went home with the waitress
the way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too."

A song about taking a risk and living an adventure.

"Send lawyers, guns and money
to get me out of this."

It is that stories around the campfire time of year. I'm in the mood for telling and hearing a few adventure tales.

Consider yourself invited! I'm not an "amiga"... just another connoisseur of fine writing and intelligent conversation. I was going to add my guess to your tunnel photo, but then I noticed it was a long time ago that you posted and I figured you'd forgotten that post. So... here's by guess: looks like some of the tunnels we have here in the Pittsburgh area, but I tend to doubt it, thinking it looks too peaceful for Pittsburgh! Tenneessee, Virginia?
