When Betty (a piper) retired, she kept the buttons of her uniform. She gave the buttons to Marion to keep and asked her to give them to someone who can use them.
One day, I met Marion at the Bridge Club. Her husband plays the bagpipes and I was making the kilt... conversation started... I told Marion I will be making the Vest and Prince Charlie jacket. Marion said you should have Betty's buttons. I got to meet Betty one day at Bridge Novice competition.
