I wiz aboot six or seven an' noticed a crowd ootside the McKinstry's hoose, so bein' nosey ah stood tae watch whit wiz happening. Oot came Mrs. McKinstry, wi' a wee bundle wrapped in a white woolen shawl. So bein' the polite wee man ah opened the gate fur her and the baabee. Next thing ah knew she haun's me a wee parcel. Ah says ta very much. A bunch o' them gets in a taxi an' away they go. Ah wiz dyin' tae know whit wiz in the parcel so ah opened it up. There wiz two digestive biscuits buttered the gither.Well ah wiz chuffed! Hauf way through it ah bit intae somethin' hard an' there wiz a tanner. Talk aboot chuffed again!! Ma lucky day. jings. diz it get any better? Later oan the big sister of the McKinstrys explained that it wiz a Christenin' piece and since she hud a new sister then the piece wiz tae go tae the first wee boy oan the wey tae the Christenin' an' it happened tae be me. It was a lovely memory, but when you think, one: I could have choked on the tanner and two: Nowadays the thought that dirty tanner in the middle of the buttered biscuit makes me cringe huh.gif smile.gif

Welcome to the boards .You've come to the right spot to meet new friends .

Tammy ,I've got some nice streamers and I picked up some nice flowers .I brought the makings for my" Knock Out Punch "so we can all have fun after that .I've got a new recipe for white chocolate fudge so I'll whip up a batch of that .The place looks great .I'm glad I caught the coal man .The bunker was empty .
Happy Birthday Betty ,Many Happy Returns .
cheers Jakka
