Bagpipes

Max loves bag pipes.
Who knew??
Tonight I learned:
The bagpipe is the same today as it was 400 years ago.
They were outlawed for 100 years.
And Bagpipe songs make me tear up.
But only the ones that they play at funerals and baseball games.
The other kinds make me feel a titch nerdy.
But in a cultured/educational "I'm smart like Ames" kind of way.

When they play Amazing Grace on the bagpipes, I am a goner. Or Praise to the Man? Love love love it.
