The Human Fruit Machine

 At the Marldon Apple Pie Fair, Devon, 26.07.2014
On a count of three, the children pull out a random fruit. We won! Brilliant.

The Exeter Pipe Band
I was struck by the last tune they played before the march-off, so I asked Pipey. He gave a wry smile and told me it was "The Gael" from "Last of the Mohicans." Ignorant Sassenach, eh?
But I don't see why it can't be authentic if it's not ancient - after all, when the MacCrimmons composed theirs it was new to them. One day they'll honour the name of Dougie Maclean, too. Besides, I think the band's rendition was better than the film's soundtrack.
