I don't object to the age of your shirts, Spaw, but to the fact that you haven't washed them in all that time.

Congrats, Shonagh. May this year be your best, and each one to follow it, and may they many and prosperous indeed!

Congratulations. Considering the alternative (all too real in many places on the globe) 17 is as good a year as any other.

Strictly speaking you're probably breaking the law making music in the pub anyway, if you're in England or Wales that is...And I thought it was sixteen when you were allowed in the pub but not allowed to drink. (Though insofar as I can remember being 17 I'd been drinking in pubs for some time by then.)

If you're in the UK what you can legally do at 17 and not before is drive a car. (Mind I think they should stick the limit up a bit. I think 35 would be about right.)

Happy birthday anyway. Seventeen is a great age.

Happy 17th, Shonagh! It's great to know there are folkies your age around to keep the traditions going!

Watch out for Susan (WYSIWYG) with her birthday paddle, though!

17...my God...seems like that was back in the 1800's or something. I didn't really start to enjoy myself till I was 21, but 17 can be really neat, I figure, if you've got the sense to make the most of it. May you have a marvelous time!

Take your time comrade... for me it was just (just!) 9 years ago. By the way, I don't know where you are, but here "the legal drinking age is just a suggestion" to quote a parody from a famous ad :-)!

Have fun and play music!

Have a great 17th birthday Shonagh!

You're younger than nearly all my musical instruments! I'm glad you discovered the music early like me, I've had 40 great years of it and I hope you have a lot longer than that!

All the best

Happy (belated) birthday. Here in the UK you could go into pubs without an adult accompanying you from the age of 16 (but not drink alcohol unless with a bona fide meal.

Hi Shonagh

Happy Birthday. I hope you had a great day. I know you had a great weekend and congratulations again for your successes. Long may they continue! The Strathspey Fiddlers' performances on Saturday and Sunday night were awesome and a real highlight of the festival for me, especially your singing.

I'm really looking forward to seeing and hearing you again at Cullerlie.

O there once was a Mudcatter Gemini
Who would fiddle so sweet and so femini.
17, she's just turned
And from Mudcatters earned
A great big "happy birthday" from them an' I!

Many, many happy returns, Shonagh, you youngster, you!

Happy Birthday! May you have many happy years of fiddling in pubs!

(Never mind that my CAR is 23 years old, and my work and hiking boots are 22 and 18 years old respectively, you're older than my glengarry, which is only 16 years old, however, I have CLEAN t-shirts that are far older I'm afraid... I'm now feeling very old.... sigh...)

But if you were in the USA you couldn't smoke a cigarette or vote for another year, or have a drink for another four years. However, you can lawfully drive a car in every state (with a few restrictions in some places), drop out of high school in any state and get expelled in most of them, be sent to prison for life without parole in any state, and get sentenced to death in about half the states, although you won't be executed until you turn 18. You can also lawfully get laid in about a dozen states, and get married in almost all of them, although you will need your parent's permission to do so. Getting married, that is. Also, you can join the U.S. Armed Forces, provided you have a high school diploma and, once again, your parent's permission. Happy birthday!

You can legally ride a m/cycle of 125cc in the UK instead of a 50 cc. Say, ****** to everyone, don't grow up, and only listen to old farts when you're desperate-we know all the mistakes we've made, and would probably do the same again.

So very happy birthday as you continue your journey through life-may it be a long and comfortable one.

Yikes, both my kids are older than you. Hope you had a great, great b/day, and many, many, MANY more. Be warned, though, you'll be lucky and happy, and have a great time, and before you know it you'll be wondering how you got so old.
