Not overheard, but a wee joke about where you live Sumac. It will make no sense to "furriners"

A chap went into a butcher's on a cold winters day and found the proprietor sitting on a radiator with his hands behind his back. Looking at the display of meats, the chap said "is this your Ayrshire Bacon".

"No" said the butcher, "I'm just heatin' ma hauns" rolleyes.gif

QUOTE (Dave Grieve @ 20th Aug 2020, 08:57am) *
When my two daughters started asking ME tricky questions ...

Someetimes it's the ones they ask among themselves ... and the answers they get.

When I was contracting on aircraft I had a Volkswagon van fitted out with 5 Boeing 707 aircraft windows along the side and two on the sliding door, complete with blinds. On the ocassions when I came home for a short weekend my daughter and her mates would look forward to trips to the woods or one of the local beaches.
One morning having arrived home at 7am after a long drive through the night I went straight into the bath to relax and freshen up after having a few coffees
I heard Kelly talking with her mates immediately below at the back door, who'd quickly spotted the Tomi Van out at the back of the house.

"Do you think your dad will be taking us out somewhere today?"
"Yeah ... I made him promice. He's in the bath right now and he'll take us out later after he's had some breakfast".
This followed by some giggles and girlish Oh goodies then one asked Kelly soto voice "Do you ever go in the bath with your daddy?" followed by more giggles, to which Kelly replied, " Yaeh ... well ... I usedf to ... but dad got too shy a while back".

I could have drowned while laughing at that laugh.gif

my eldest daughter decided to get her baby christened and while she was at it got the 3 year old girl christened too. We were in the Catholic church ,and the little girl getting christened was sitting with my other daughter`s littlel girl same age,on the step of the lady altar which had the stand of candles all lit. One said,is this a party ? and the other one said it must be,there`s candles,so there must be a cake,but i don`t see any presents.

Right, I’m adding skeegie. and. schneister.

Words that I learned as an adult moving to Ayrshire were. nanky peevy and
stoory paloory both Ayrshire words (or so I was told) meaning a tantrum. I have used these a lot since and have been copied by the granddaughters.

The wee ones love ooss and dander as well, both meaning dust or dust bunnies.

I often wish I had written down all the old words my mum and gran used. You think you’ll remember them, but you don’t.

sounds like Ayrshire was still talking the old Scots that Rabbie wrote in his works.

we had a teacher in primary school who told us she was giving us some poetry from the auld Scots times,with old words we`d never heard in the usual Wordsworth and Walter De la mare poems which were standard. There was a couple but the one that stuck in my memory was "get up and bar the door". I loved it,she read it out to us,and it was exciting storyline,husband speaking to his wife in old scots words. When I was able to Google it,I found as it went along,it got a bit risque,2 men on the run from the authorities,knocking on their door when they were in bed for the night. As it went on it was all dramatic,but I think one of the men had nasty thoughts towards the "good lady wife". I don`t think our teacher realised this,as she never got far enough along with the story. I can only imagine the headmistress Sister mary Clare knowing this.

Oh uh! Pornography in school!

We had a French teacher in 5th year at school who was fantastic. We read books like Maigret in class. We would each read out the translation from the French book and often somebody would mis-translate a piece. The teacher would usually make a double-entendre about this. Being young ladies by that time, we laughed and enjoyed being treated as adults and not schoolgirls.

I remember years ago teaching my Kiwi husband scrabble. I won the game with the word "oose". He didn't believe it was a word till I showed him a Scrabble dictionary years later. These days I play in a wee social scrabble group and I am educating them on the old Scottish words..

Good for you, Lass! We need to keep our language alive. My niece in the USA asked me for the words and tunes of all the old games we used to sing or play. I decided, in the end, it was easier to give her a book instead. I must go look it out and I’ll put its title on here.
