I was always told not to open an umbrella in the house as it would bring bad luck

There are three things everyone should do every day.
Number one is laugh.
Number two is think -- spend some time in thought.
Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears.
If you laugh, think and cry, that's a heck of a day.

Rab, now you are embarrassing me.

I'm trying to think how to explain, ' keep your haun on your ha'penny'. We all knew what mum meant.

The only way I can explain it is!!!!!!!!!!!!

When a footballer gets a free kick in front of the goal, the opposing team line up and where do they all put their hands??????? On their 'wedding tackle', so the ball won't get near it. laugh.gif


I'm sitting here blushing.

Keep your hands out of your pockets when you walk. If you trip you'll no be able to save yourself and you'll hit the pavement.

don't move your hands or Nod , the auctioneer thinks your bidding if you do that. Just sit at peace and keep quiet while we are here. ( stupid me, it gave her peace and quiet ) I couldn't fidget. No daft that Granny of mine.

How about this one.......Come here to I hit ye!! yeah like that lasted a lifetime........ It worked for a wee while, made me do what I was told, never did get hit, I used to wonder why they laughed when I went over, being a good boy and doing what I was told........


How about....... If you don't behave yourself, I'll take you to the swap shop and get a nice budgie in place of you!

I know I've used some of these lines myself, with both my kids and my grandkids. I laughed and now my kids laugh at them as well.

One forgetful christmas.... my daughter got me a fancy new multi remote...... When I asked her about the missing batteries, she told me they would come when it was my birthday, and that now I had something to look forward to. One thing about them kids of mine, they certainly inherited their quick Glasgow wit.

I was told if I was bad that Santa would bring me a bunch of sticks for Christmas imagine trying to be good for a whole year just not possible.

Also don't sit on the stairs or you'll get piles - never could work that one out piles of what?

One my daughter use to say and I don't know where she got it from, if you prick your nose your eyes will all out.

Change your knickers everyday in case you have an accident I use to think what a bunch of sick people they must be at the hospital if they need to look at your knickers.
