Hi Foxy52, where in Fairfax? If you hated dc traffic then you'd do your nut in now. I swear it's taken years off my life. Nobody would speak to me when I first got into the office; gave me time to calm down and have a couple of coffees!!! Don't know your other sisters. I never knew any other Foxes, only family.

Hi again mrssnuffy, l got my places mixed up, she lived in Falls Church W.Va, but worked in Frederick, Maryland. She was director of admissions for ITT technical Colleges. She moved around a lot. She is retired now and living in Lewisburg Tenn.
I have to admit that when l was driving trucks the cities l hated most were.... Chicago, New York, and L.A. I miss the job though, but every now and then my son will let me drive for a day or two,Funny when you think about it, l bought the truck!!!!!!

Hi Foxy, was in Detroit once in Jan. 1978 and I think DC at present is worse. Finally got driveway cleared but more snow tomorrow. Did you mean Falls Church, VA.? I used to live there also. It's amazing how may ex-pats are in the US and how you meet them. I was in Vegas a few years ago wityh my husband and we were watching the gondolas, chatting away when the man next to us said I know where you from. His wife was getting out of gondola and came over to tqlk to us. She had lived in Castlemilk, the next close to my then boyfriend. I've had quite a few interesting meetings. Small world.

Hello again, l just got off the phone with my sister, she told me that l had it wrong again! She used to live in Falling Waters W.Va. but she did travel to Frederick Maryland everyday for work. She told me that she lived about an hour and a half outside D.C.
I moved to Detroit in 1977, and that winter into 78 was the worst l can remember. We built the kids an igloo in the front yard in the January, it did'nt all completely melt away till the beginning of April.
I have come across many Scots in mine time here, like l said before l had a truck and would drive all over the 48.Mostly to auto plants, and that is where l met the most Scots. Then playing in a pipe band for almost all the time over here l met a lot there too, mostly spectators at the different Highland games

Hi Foxy, glad you finally found out where your sister was living!!! Hope you had better luck when you were trucking (tee hee)!!! Do you play the pipes? And, do you go to any of the highland games around here? Funny thing for me was that most of the people I met who were in pipe bands were "wannabe" Scots. Dated a Drum Major for awhile. Looked great in his kilt. Ah, that's a far distant memory.

Over the Border here in Basel, Switzerland, the have each year a massive big Pipe Band day with hundreds of bands. I think they actually call it The Basler Tattoo. I went one time with a German mate and couldn't wait to get chatting with some o' the big bagpipe players who all looked about as Hielan' as you can get.

Not a Jock among them.
They were Swiss, they were German, they were Austrian to a man.
Still, it's nice to know that we have that effect on people all over the world. biggrin.gif

I remember playing this game a lot in Primary school 30 + yeara ago !

we called it Moshie - I couldnt remember the exact rules - but I think it did vary like any game between pals. I googled it and came across this excellent description - but it does vary from the way we used to play it - but its close enough!

Also came across this amazing reference to Moshie or Hashie in the Glasgow Herald archives printed in 1946

Probably spelt it wrong but it was pronounced Mo-sh-ae...you dug three small holes in the tarmac out the back and you had to throw coins into the holes but you could also knock other coins away...can't remember exactly how it is played and so if anyone does can you let me know...jist so i can sleep the night..

The game is played with 3 holes in the ground about 4 feet apart in a line .To determine what order people play in ,everyone takes turn standing at the first hole and rhrows their coin at the 3rd hole ,the closest to the hole goes first and second closest goes second etc .The first player stands at the first hole and tries to get in the second hole if he misses ,the next player goes ,when it comes back to you ,you start from where your coin fell 1st time and try to get in the 2nd hole ,if you get it in ,you get another go at the next hole(3rd hole) ,if you get that in you move back to the 2nd hole .Once you have been in 2nd 3rd 2nd 1st 2nd 3rd hole ,you are on 'kill' which means you can throw your coin at any other coins and if it hits them ,you keep your coins ,if you miss you need to wait your turn again ,nobody can take your coin unless they are on 'kill' also .We used to play with 10p pieces in the mid eighties in corkerhill near pollok in glasgow ,but the the older teens played with ten bob bits (50p pieces) .I hope this helps some people ,brilliant game !

If you dug the holes in the tarmac that might be the reason for all the potholes now laugh.gif

i used to watch the boys in our street play this. it was just a small hole in the wall, and they 'motioned' the coin along by flicking it with the middle finger,never saw any throwing the coins,and I always thought it was called motie short for motion. wrong I suppose,but brought back a memory long long buried. anyway it never looked as interesting as us girls playing doublers or skipping ropes.
