yankeeclipper Posted March 3, 2009 Share Posted March 3, 2009 My favorite reaction came about many years ago, when I had been driving in the Outer Hebrides with my friend Mairi, a native Gaelic-speaker. It had been uncharacteristically sunny, and I was wearing dark sunglasses. At our destination in South Uist, we enlisted the help of two local men to unload our car. Afterward, as we shared a few drams with them, I brought out my concertina and played a few tunes. One of the locals said something in Gaelic to his companion, and I asked Mairi to translate. "He says you play very well," she smiled, "for a blind man." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
