Gene in his kilt
In the 80s, Gene, a former police officer, became an active supporter of the Los Angeles Police Band Associates. They had a marching band, a mariachi band, and a Scottish band -- with drums and bagpipes! The group held many social events, including get-togethers in full Scottish regalia. After one of their formal dinners, Gene dropped by my place to show off his kilt. This is authentic Stewart plaid (I'm not sure why he's a Stewart, but I think it's a catch-all clan for those who aren't sure). If you look at Gene's left hand, you can see that he's clenching a tissue -- he had just shown me his "dirk," and he cut himself on it!
