S Rioghal Mo Dhream

.

Scotland. Home to fine whiskey, rugged highlands, a mythical lake creature, bagpipes, my ancestors… and haggis.

(If you don’t know what haggis is, consider yourself lucky and leave it at that.)

Since the owner/bartender of our local pub is a Scot born and bred, I thought it might be fun to show up wearing a mask of my clan’s tartan the next time we drop by for a pint. Enter Amazon.

Sure enough they had one…

Though by the look of the packaging, I’m guessing it was not made anywhere near a peat bog or by Clan MacGregor.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering….

The post title is my clan’s motto in Gaelic. Royal is my race.

.

.

Well, yes.

There’s that too.

  1. What interesting heritage River, nice tartan colors too. And so now we know you should be royalty, or are in disguise I mean lol. Scotland, on my bucket list to visit before I die. And Ireland too, those places just call to me.

      1. I love it! Clan McPherson has the same motto.

        From Wikipedia:

        Touch not the cat bot a glove. ‘Bot’ means without. … If the cat is ‘ungloved’, its claws are unsheathed. The motto serves as a warning that one should beware when the wildcat’s claws are ‘without a glove’.

      2. Further from the Macphersons:

        The motto serves as a warning that one should beware when the wildcat’s claws are ‘without a glove’. It is a reference to the historically violent nature of the clan and serves as a metaphorical warning to others that they should think twice before interfering with Macpherson business.
