Happy National Tartan Day, a national holiday for all Scottish-Americans and the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320. The Follow Friday location is the Scottish Tartans Museum. I think I'll take myself out to lunch (no haggis!) to celebrate, but first a bit on Clan Ross, a Highland Scottish clan I belong to courtesy of my Aberdeenshire grandfather, William Watson Ross.

Aren't they lovely? I promise if I wear one of the hunting ones, I won't slaughter any creatures. I may dance a fling, though.
