    This is the sort of thing I do on the weekends!

    It was fun! Though some of the little ones got a bit freaked out by the bear!
    His name is Byron, by the way.
    Byron T. Bear!
    He and his handler make appearances to educate people and promote bear conservation in the wild.
    Thank you! I love it!
    And I enjoy the reactions of all the "good ole boys" here in cowboy country when I go out in it!

    There's just something about a man in a kilt ;)

    Bear looks like a man in a costume, lol.

    I also didn't think the bear was real!
    Kilts are great, love them and the bagpipes always make me cry! Lots of that stuff in the Maritimes with all the Scottish heritage.
    Looks like you have a lot of fun on weekends.

    Living in the age of cotton, I've always wondered, what did ancient man wear under his kilt? Wool must have sucked! Too scratchy!

    LOL! It is a costume! But the guy has the bear imitation down pat! He fools a lot of folks!
    The true Scot will tell you that if there is something under it, it isn't a kilt,...Its a skirt!
    This is one of my favorite renfaire songs
    The Scotsman

    That looks like fun! Was that at a festival of some kind?

    That was the Great Plains Renaissance Festival in Wichita Kansas.

    Where else but at a ren faire would you see a man in a kilt hugging a bear! LOL!

    Awesome photo Merlin. As a man of Scotch/Irish heritage, I respect a man who has the guts to wear a kilt.

    I should get a picture of Grey up in his (Clan Sutherland) kilt. He looks fresh off the boat when he wears it.

    Phew, glad to see I'm not going completely insane that I can't tell the difference between a real and fake bear haha.

    Loved that song, he won 1st prize, too funny lol. It had my toes a tapping.
    I'm so glad the bear wasn't real, good idea to use the muzzel, that made it more believeable.

    Sounds like fun Merlin, I would have many weekends like it, if I didn't have to drive so far to get there. LOL :)

    Cute!
