Taps Aff – Image #110

This is an increasingly well used and well known Scottish phrase. It’s used to indicate a move to warmer weather, when it is possible / advisable to remove any layers of clothing above the waist.  It may also indicate sunshine, irrespective of temperature, though is normally reserved for sunny days where the temperature reaches double figures (Celsius)…
