Thought you were on about burds

But birds poo on the curtains.
Your post #119: One of my mates over here had a wee boy just over 2 year ago and I was explaining the Christening Piece to him and he was saying he's no sure about gettin' the wean christened. A week later I pressed a piece of silver into the wee boys hand, told the mate it was a Scottish tradition. He looked at the silver; a St Christopher on a wee silver chain. He said, "You're not a Christian!" I said, "It's a Scottish tradition and I'm Scottish. What can the wean dae about that?"
Wait a minute ... I've got my eye on a burd.
... Some try to tell me thoughts they cannot defend ...
