WMD July 24
The next Mind blowing installment of THE WEEKLY MIND DUMP!!!! (insert techno-ey reverb and echo) The week of July 24, 2017! So what wild and imaginative stuff do we have this week?
Yup. I’m mentioning this again. Head over to our store to find our hybrid kilts, standard 8 yard kilts, women’s skirts, kids kilts, and other accessories. This won’t be going on much longer. Get them now while you can.
Kilts in the news
Got to love when kilts get good news coverage. In New Richmond WI, the police chief is working to raise funds for his department’s new K-9 unit. What started out as a joke (many of us have been there) got turned into a dare and then a deal. Police Chief Craig Yehlik popped off saying if they could raise the $50,000 for the K-9 unit addition, he’d wear a tactical kilt for one week and one special event.
Well, the spirit of the kilt heard him and spoke to the fine people of New Richmond. As of the article on July 6, they had 70% of the target raised. That is $35,000.
For the (as I call it) “Paul Harvey” version of the story, head over and read the article. As of right now, the chief hasn’t had to don his kilt yet, but I am sure we may be having a new kiltie soon.

Oh and why do I call it the “Paul Harvey” version? For those of you not in the know, he is an old radio host that used to air a daily segment called “The Rest of the Story” where he would tell the parts that never got the glitz and glam of conventional news coverage. He always ended his segment with “Paul Harvey, could they?”
Yeah, I’m still pimpin’ this. It is a big one for kilties! We are nearing our annual trek to DRAGONCON!!! The annual gathering of geeks, nerds, kilties, yahoos, and everyone else. I hope you are excited! Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta Georgia! Gather your kilts and come join the fun. And be careful of the lady with the leaf blower. You think I’m kidding.
So got to share this. One day while me and my wife were at Wal-mart (yes, I hate that place too, but sometimes you just HAVE to go there), we were walking around, me in my spiffy 5.11 tactical kilt. We walk by these 2 young lassies, OK, that is being nice. They were teenagers. Pure and simple. I was about 10 feet ahead of my wife, and as I pass, one of the girls looks back at her friend and points towards me and “stage whispers” – “It’s a guy in a skirt!!!” My wife, love her to death, looks right at her and says (faking a nice Scottish accent) “It’s not a skirt, it’s a kilt!”
Now this has happened to all of us. We all get the “skirt” joke on what seems to be an hourly basis sometimes. What made this time so funny was the BRIGHT PINK her face and ears turned when she got caught. So a little humor for us.
