It cooled off to a sensible 105 degrees in Pleasanton on Sunday, which made wearing a woolen kilt downright comfortable, almost. Hundreds of men were wearing them, and thousands more were staring at the men who were. That seems to be one of the main things to do at the annual Scottish Highland Gathering and Games at the Pleasanton fairgrounds, in addition to having contests to see who can throw tree trunks, hammers and giant rocks the farthest. Kilts are big business at Scottish games. Booths sell ready-to-wear polyester kilts off the rack for $135 and proper made-to-order woolen kilts for $800 or so.
