The two tricky questions were #5 and #10 - either that, or you all had the Bonnie Prince on your minds! Shame on you - but he was a pretty little boy, perhaps that is why he was the 'Bonnie' prince, ye ken?
My son drew Nannag out of the Easter basket -- the hand-knit felted cloche went AWOL this week.

Most Creative: Caroline of Beauchamp provided a map of the battlefield.
Gigglesnort: Caroline of Beauchamp: She couldn't find a picture of Johnny Cope, so she sent the song (along with the music!)
Johnny Cope (Hey Johnny Cope!)
· Hi, Johnny Cope, are ye waukin' yet
Or are your drums a-beating yet
Gie you were waukin' I would wait
Tae gang tae the coals in the morning
Cope sent a letter frae Dunbar'
Chairlie meet me an' ye dare
I'll learn ye the airts o' war
If ye'll meet me in the morning
When Chairlie looked the letter upon
He drew his sword his scabbard from
Follow me, my merry men
Meet Johnnie Cope in the morning
When Johnnie Cope he heard o' this
He thought it wouldnae be amiss
Tae hae a horse in readiness
Tae flee awa' in the morning
Fie noo Johnny, get up and rin
The Highland bagpipes mak' a din
Better tae sleep wi' a hale skin
It will be a bloody morning
When Johnny Cope tae Dunbar cam'
They speirded him, Whaur's a' your men
The de'il confound me gin I ken
I left them a' in the morning
Fie noo Johnny, ye werenae blate
Tae come wi' the news o' your ain defeat
And leave your men in sic a strait
Early in the morning
Faith, quo' Johnny, I got sic flegs
Frae their claymores and philabegs
Gin I face them again de'il brak' my legs
I'll bid ye's a' good morning
Anatomically incorrect, but still right:Ceili of MacKenzie
(I thought they dropped their kilts before they charged!)
