: : So, he who dies with the most toys wins? Well, I usually carry the most toys on my body. Let's see - Brown Bess, bayonet, Highland pistol, dirk, broadsword, back knife, and a wee knife in me sporran. And, if I lit my grenadier slow match I could put wee burn marks alllll over yer body! Hooo, hoooo! I could also take my corporal's knot off and garrot ye!! But, my dear cousins, I would never think of doing that to kin. Now, Red Leaf is another matter!! Pax Aye!

: Malcom Angus et al,
: Goodness. Makes one wonder how you run after the enemy, and the lasses, with all that extra stuff weighing you down. Sounds like a girl could fall asleep waiting for you to divest yourself of it all.

The breech clout made it all possible in my case! Breeches is a little more difficult, but the drop front is a fine invention...Without going into sordid detail, let it be said that Malcolm is correct...and besides, 'tis the lassies who run after us! We WALK after them to save strength for more important, ummm, activities...at least I used to... until Nancy, the dark haired lass came into my life. Now I have all I can handle...!!
