I cannae believe Melody......I nearly put that in my reply about wanting to apologise to Davy for those swines but couldn't find the eloquence you did to explain it properly.
Thanks pet....and yer right we're two wee peas in a pod sometimes sure we are laugh.gif

As for that Hospital Story too.....why did so few get away with so much in those days?
I could poke that Ward Sisters eyes oot the now.

You only have to hope that those responsible for meanness and downright rotten actions towards kids never had their own children.
Imagine that cruelty wrapped up in disguise for some poor unsuspectin weans as their parent.

There was a lot of that kind of thing went on in those days Catherine, a lot of parents had too much 'respect' or should I say 'fear' of authority and that's how that cruelty flourished. I detest each and every one of those who ever hurt a child in that way or any other.
You wonder at what went on in their head these people how they slept at night.

Thank you both...Catherine and Melody. I believe you suffered more Melody since your peers were directly involved....man's inhumanity to man, eh? I believe we've agreed on the GGBB to keep our specific personal beliefs to ourselves, however Melody, I strongly believe that people like that sister you mention will one day be held accountable for her part in your sorrow.
There are days when one almost feels ashamed to be a part of the human race and while we can't be responsible for the actions of others, it makes me realize more and more that it behooves us to do the best that we as individuals can for the betterment of others. Thank you ladies again for your empathy.
These Boards serve to once again reinforce what is good in human nature and while we sometimes agree to disagree (which is each person's right), we tend to help each other, perhaps more than any of us realize. I believe our common national bond and Pro Patria is largely responsible for this. As Heather so aptly puts it "Alba gu Brath" smile.gif

I'm sure I've gone ever so slightly off topic here but feel better for this conversation. Thank you all for your kind patience...Davy

Ah think it’s a true sayin, whit disny kill ye makes ye stronger…..Melody and Davy, ah’m horrified that somebody can say and do these kinds of things tae a wean, and the worst of it is, ah think they know exactly whit they’re doin….

As ah’ve said before, we wurny exactly in Carnegie’s league growin up, no that ah’m poor moothin it, but ma mammy had a hard time. Ye know the kinda thing, last up worst dressed….Ah remember us getting a big bag of clothes given by a wonderful teacher at school, ah’ve no idea where they came from, but we aw sorted through them tae see whit fitted and so on. Ah went tae school wi the loveliest wee black and red jumper oan, thinking ah wis it and another teacher commented in front of the class, ‘Oh I see you managed to find something to fit you in from the charity bag’….ah wis mortified and never wore anything from the bag again. She wis wanny those that couldny see past the fact that some of us didny have the nicely pressed uniform, ribbons in the hair and so on.

Ah got ma own back by workin hard and forcing her to accept that ah might be poor but ah wisny stupid, although ah mind ah wore wellies in the summer wance an tellt everybody the weather forecast wis fur rain…ah wis six...where wis ah gonny hear the weather forecast?..... laugh.gif

Och sure, if ye don’t laugh ye’ll greet eh?... laugh.gif

Oh My Java!....how in the name o' the wee man could that teacher say somethin' like that tae ye? Especially in front o' the class. It's like ye had a sign roon yer neck sayin' "I'VE NO FEELINGS"
It goes to show the difference there can be between two people; a kind teacher and a b..........! What gives people the right to talk down to children? Is it because they think the child has no defence or is this their way of taking out their frustrations? Whatever the case Java, I'm glad you showed that witch by your hard work that you weren't stupid and from what I've seen of your wit and humour things haven't changed. Good for you and before I go, I agree with Melody.

Whit a rerr big hug Lennox...we a' need wan o' thae noo 'n' again. wink.gif

Java, You have a way of bringing back the memories,
I remember someone gave my mum a "bag" I was so happy that I found a dress and I wore it to school .
The Lassie whose clothes they were was also in my class and in front of everyone she says "my mammy said you were as big as me", I wanted to crawl under the desk, neveer again did I wear anything from "bags"
Your posts almost always make me cry ,sometimes with laughter, sometimes with sadness , but always with JOY!! tongue.gif
PS I wonder how big that lassie is now , me I am 127us pounds.
payback is good.

Kenny , I looked at the town of Alyth, I think this might be the place that I went to, I remember it being a big white house. I could be wrong. I also went to a place in Largs that one I do remember it was Inverclyde Rec. Center. another "White House"

Hi there.
Does anybody know anything about Dunclutha Home in Dunoon? I think it's in Dunoon. I knew two children who were sent there.
It's a Children's Home.
