Lisa Christensen Moffat in her newly acquired Moffat Kilt. Roger had ordered a kilt at the Moffat Woollen Mill this very day, but it was to be shipped to the US after it was made. Here he (I) is wearing it on Halloween - the first time I'd worn the kilt and jacket together. On the Thursday evening we were VERY well entertained in the Moffat Town Hall by William Williamson (on drums) 15 year old Gavin on the bagpipes and (name forgotten) on the piano accordian.

Gavin piping William Williamson in for the second part of the entertainment. Lisa Christensen and Roger Moffat outside the Town Hall after the entertainment. A nearly full moon is just rising over our shoulders. (Imageine me wearing my kilt outfit - I'd paid for it already!!) Al Yougel who had made this whole trip possible for all of us through his tireless work showed why he's Jack of "Al" Trades - here behind the bar at Moffat House Hotel.

A few minutes later he appears at the front desk of the Moffat House Hotel to give Don Moffat his room keys.
