- That's the flag of Scotland there, along with our American flag at the Stone Mountain Highland Games, held this past weekend, at which we celebrate our Scottish heritage. This was a massed pipe and drum band at the opening ceremonies on Saturday and there were about three times more pipers and drummers than you can see here.
I love the pageantry, and seeing once-a-year friends. The best story of the weekend: a young woman came to our tent and told a remarkable story. Eight years ago, someone at our tent had helped her sort out the derivation of her family birth name (she was adopted), which lead to her finding her birth father, who she had never met. He lives in the Atlanta area, too, and they are close now. Just lovely.
