Good catch on the lack of white tie with dinner jacket, Cyrillic. However, I'm sure that, since neither modern dinner jacket nor tuxedo are traditions of very long standing, there must be other legitimate inheritors of the old suavete, and he might not be wrong for his culture (I wouldn't know).

My Scottish blood comes from a poor region of the Tweed River Valley, and that is the tartan my kilt is made from. While I doubt they wore white undershirts, I'm not sure they had the money to afford the finery you expect, either.  :D I do have the knife sticking out of my sock.  ;)

Nice kilt you have there, though. Very impressive.
Thank you!

They still would have worn sash or vest, belt and buckle, and probably boots. At least on Sundays. :)

I don't have the sash/vest, but I do have the boots. I used to have a belt but it no longer fits me. Time to get a new one!  :p

Dramatic kilted profile.
You look extraordinarily familiar. Me thinks that we may have come across each other without realizing it in the past, which isn't unlikely given our close proximity to each other.

I guess it is a possibility! I don't leave Arizona often, though.

I thought you were from San Francisco? I live only 20 minutes away from that city.

No sir, Phoenix. My bishop is in San Francisco, though!

My mother has met him.  She even yelled at him.  :)
I'm pretty sure that's part of the formal vetting process.

As I always say, you don't get many opportunities to yell at a bishop.

Proper bishop material? :p I'm pretty sure half of a bishop's job or more is to get yelled at. Probably a good way to become Christ-like.

One that does not have many opportunities to yell at bishops, at least one in my position...lol!

I'm curious to know...was this a "hi I'm over here" yell or a more "I don't like what you did" yell...or was this a committee meeting, in which case I understand the latter...lol

I really need to stop.  I am trying to invite myself to an Indian friend's party Saturday night and if I don't stop he might have Mor and Mina tie me to a metal grate, pull my heart out, and lower me into a pit of boiling curry/lava whilst chanting "Khali ma!".

I have been called a heartless {censored} from time to time, but despite the insistence of those people, I do in fact have a heart, my doctor even found it once.  I'd like to keep it where it is, thank you very much.

So nothing I do is allowing me to upload the picture, modify my previous post, or post what I want. Sorry I wasted everyone's time.

James, for a second I thought this was you and was booking a flight to set you straight.
