Hi there Wee Mags and JimmyD. Isn't this a great place?! Dead impressed by the new format. I feel as if we've been through a tornado and ended up on this beautiful island. It is a shame, though, that all the magnificent and heart-warming posts of the old site have disappeared. However, new beginnings mean new growth. And we can all grow together once again.
(This is weewuman, by the way. Changed my name for the new site) Bye the noom.

"Hello everyone" from Rena ,just had a wee chat with our Rena and she has no time to herself since the big meet with family visiting, last time she was in here she was telling us how she'd wrote for 20 mintues about her trip only to lose it.Well she didn't know all about the failure and had not even had time to read my e-mail. But she is thinking about you all and asked me to let you all know .She's hoping to get on soon. huh.gif

Posted by: jannymac 28th Jul 2003, 08:12pm

Posted by: buntyq 28th Jul 2003, 08:14pm

In the old Board Martin told us where everyone lived. Is it somewhere and I'm missing it. unsure.gif

Betty, it was a shock for most of us and I have to hand it to Mags, aka wee mags, who e-mailed me the problem when I thought my computer was going haywire.

I have a feeling you will present us with a poem soon. I dont think we will forget the old scrapbook. This post will be great for rememberances.

Posted by: betty2 28th Jul 2003, 10:46pm

For the past week my heart was sad
But now today it has turned to glad
We are all posting once again
And taking our trips down memory lane
The glasgow that you all once knew
Into a city of culture it has grew
But many of you will remember its past
And those memories of childhood I'm sure will last
Those happy times I'm sure most of you spent
In a room'n'kitchen in a tenement
Glasgow the city of culture it became
But to all of you it will always be hame
No matter how far away you may roam
Glasgow's the place you will always call home

Posted by: thebardau 29th Jul 2003, 12:27am

Re - "Ah'll second that Ed wance oor cath gets started there's nae haudin her", betty2, she better make it real soon, I'm only "holding the fort" until she gets back in here where she should be - cos ah can't keep this up much longer!

Posted by: Isobel 29th Jul 2003, 02:05am

Noo the ferr wance again is comin tae an end
These wee tit bits tae you'se ah'll send
The waverly is still trippin doon the clyde
Wae loats o folk fae far an wide
But also oan this steamer you'll find
Glesca folk o every kind
Maw 's will take their weans away fur the day
Tae Dunoon an Millport and Rothesay bay
Senior citizens wae tears in their eyes
See the empty docks where wance great ships did rise
Many teenagers on this ship do go
Ower tae Rothesay where theres a good disco
Oan the bottom deck a trio play
Music that suits nae matter where you're fae
And if yi want yi cin get up an dance
But wae the rollin o the ship yir takin a chance
There's nowt better than a trip doon the clyde
And this is seconded by all from far and wide
Whilst takin this trip doon memory lane
Ah remember the good days when ah wis a wean

In the wee sma’ hours wi betty2.

Can we synchronise our watches, ‘cos oor time is no’ the same,
I’ll be yer virtual visitor when all the mob’s gone hame,
Mind they clean up after themselves - & we’ll hiv oorsels a ba’
Jist in time fur breakfast - & ah’ll be bringing it a’.

So put awa’ thon teapot, we’ll no’ get in that rut,
Cos tannin’s no that good for us, it tends tae rot yer gut,
Breakfast of champions, oor hearts will be singin
Wi’ health in the sma' hours, cos here’s whit ah'm bringin.

[unpacks, several thuds – vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco, coupla limes – where’s yer pepper & Worcesterhire sauce, betty?]

Ah yes, Bloody Mary, all the necessary vitamins, minerals & essential nutrients to sustain life!

Here’s tae us, wha’s like us, here’s tae oor health,
Long life, happiness, & aye enough wealth,
Glasgow’s no’ changed – does that rain EVER stop?
Here, let me pour again, jist anither wee drop,
Here’s mud in yer eye, lang may yer lum reek,
Ah’ve kept ye up, hen, ah’ll awa’, go to sleep.

Wae tears in ma eyes ah wis touched yi see

I don't blame you for being a little fed up with all the rain. It seems that it has rained here in the mountains every day since the end of June. My yard man has to come every ten days now rather than every two weeks, and that seems not often enough. One of my daughters lives down in Murrell's Inlet, SC and she has been inundated too.

One of the side benefits of all the rain is that I have never seen our mountains more lush and green. I noticed in one of the board messages that your husband comes from Ocracoke. Was he a Coast Guiardsman?

Posted by: ladykate 9th Aug 2003, 11:02pm

Hi Dennis how are you doing okay I hope,oh this rain is terrible at least yours run doon the mountain doon here in the Lowlands there,s no where for it to go eveything is satuarated,the weatherman says the middle of next week before it goes away.

George retired in 1983 from the Coastguard five miles down the road at Hobucken, he was a Chief Boswainsmate at one time there were six of the brother,s in the Coastguard at the same time,his mother had eleven boys as it was a fishing village most of the lads went into the service or become a fisherman.


Posted by: Teeny 10th Aug 2003, 12:18am


Posted by: Denis Fallon 10th Aug 2003, 12:20am


I made a pretty good guess re your husband's career. I've read that there were and are whole families of folks from the outer banks who went into the Coast Guard. By heritage and tradition they are well suited for that service. You should be proud of him and them. There are some folks over on Harkers Island who have been building boats for generations and if you get one of their boats you've got one that will last a lifetime. Do you have a Harkers Island boat?

Morning Betty, your right, we're getting spoiled with the weather, better take it and enjoy it all before the old winter comes in. How did Lee get on yesterday? smile.gif

Posted by: buntyq 10th Aug 2003, 12:41pm

Got in very early this morning from a bus trip to Saratoga (horse racing) with the Red Hatters of Fairfield. Whit a great display of red hats! And to complete our outfits we all try to wear something purple. For info on this group whose aim is friendship and fun, check into The Red Hat Society on line.

I dont know one horse from another and my limit is a dollar to show. I'm told the odds are better and I did win 90 cents! Big spender but right now there are few bawbees in the old tea caddy.

This was my second time at a race track - the first many years ago in Tampa, Florida. The weather held up until it was time for the bus to leave for Fairfield then the heavens opened. The ladies could have cared less
about dresses and shoes getting soaked - had to preserve those red chapeaus at all cost.

A big round of applause for those tour bus drivers who earn their living driving in extreme weather at night. Looks like we are in for another wet day. My resident groundhog is chewing away at the clover in the back yard. I wish he had a taste for crab grass!

Posted by: ladykate 10th Aug 2003, 01:43pm

Goodmorning,Betty,melody,BigEll glad to hear you are still having
great weather sad.gif jist wish it was me no you all enjoy yourselves
still raining here like Bunty says all the way to Florida,ah feel sorry
for the holiday makers there probably wishing they stayed home.

Okay Teeny ah will settle for a cuppa if you dont have ony thing
stronger,sorry dont have any Alka Seltsers will a couple of asprin

Dennis you are so right about the young men being suited
for the Guard,they lived on the water just have one nephew
in it now he is stationed in Alabama.
George has never had a Harker,s Island boat that I know of
he has a Priveteer at the moment since he went back to the
tugboats he jist fishes small time now.

Posted by: Denis Fallon 10th Aug 2003, 08:16pm

Yes' I'm back, I don't do much posting but I do a lot of reading and listening in to all that goes on with this great group of people. I was off for nearly a month. We put down new carpet in most of this wee house and bought some new furniture and drapes and had the old back decking torn up and replaced. We went up to Ohio foir a grand-daughter's wedding (she married a young man who graduated from West Point in May) then we had house guests from Georgia and Alabama, then my daughters from SC and CA came to help me celebrate my 82 birthday. We are now awaiting the arrival tomorrow of our daughter and granddaughter from Ohio for a few days visit. When they leave we will have a breather. Who ever said that retirement is dull?

wink.gif Just dropping in to day hi, after being away with the Trailer for the weekend. The first time this year I might add,and perhaps the last. It seems to be very stressful on Mishka,oor wee dug of 14years who is blind. The obvious inevitable is raising its' ugly head again,and I of course, am trying to ignore it. Happy to learn that the weather is still unbelievable in Scotland. I can't believe that I did not open my umbrella once when I was there. In my neck of the woods,the weather is hot and very,very,humid,making it rather uncomfortable for sleeping. But I will not complain. The darn winter is soo long,and cold,meriting one to suffer in silence during the summer. Betty I did soo want a nice cuppa tea,but couldn't find the T-bags. Did you or somebody change there usual place on the shelf, next to the stove?. So I had to satisfy myself with a digestive biscuit and a glass of good Scottish Waaater. Betty will you please check on this fur me..Thanks pal....Rena rolleyes.gif

Posted by: jimmyd 11th Aug 2003, 01:37am

Aw! Doremi love,I have been that road with two dogs.One was a wee Poodle who was old blind ,and then a Boxer,the kids grew up wi those pets.The decision has to be made,lets face ,if I get to that stage then I hope someone does it fur me.I love the memories of those two wee pals.Had to part with my we Tonkinese cat ,when I sold up.
Was sitting here on the PC the other night,and I hear this Meowing.without thinking I shout "OK Suzie A,hm coming".Took me a second or two to realise,where I was. Senior Moment !!!! or wishful thinking .????

Here ah am inmasel again
An thinkin back tae when ah wis a wean
Those summer days in the parks ah played
Too faur fae hame ah never strayed
Hogganfield loch ma furthest jaunt
Alexandra park anither haunt
There wis also tollcross wae aw the lovely flooers
And in aw these places ah spent happy hooers
Then at night oan the streets we played
Ma dont shout me in the noo ah prayed
Kick the can ,allevio tae name but a few
Rounders and beds we played these too
The winter nights were dark and bleak
So in the hoose we played hide'n'seek
The places we fun tae hide oorsel
Below the bed & even in the coal bunker as well
But through the day up in ally park
There wis skaters oan the frozen pond tae early dark
But us poor weans wur slippin an slidin
Daen wur shoes in an then gettin a hidin
And aww o this ah remember well
As ah sit here INMASEL

Hi Isobel - today was a hot one here for sure but at least the humidity was minimal - in a condo, high up, on the North West corner, I'm sitting here in a wonderful breeze - no need for AC!
