Will ye NO come back again!
Between trains yesterday I managed a quick visit to Princes Street. No sign of the young man with his wee dog-perhaps he has earned enough to winter in warmer climes-Dundee or Arbroath perhaps? But the Piper was out and about having abandoned his usual exposed pitch for a more sheltered ambush position just off the main street. Not a good day for attracting the specie. Few tourists and too cold to take hands out of pockets (an old Scottish excuse, that one) Even a stirring rendition of '100 Pipers an' 'a an' 'a' failed to stop folk in their tracks-but being 99 short of a full house this was perhaps not too surprising.
