Here ,is there any tea going ??.My tongues hingin' oot .
Had a busy day ,I bought two new light fixturres for my kitchen .Brave me got the old ones down only to see I'd need to paint the ceiling !!!!.It took two coats .Finally got the first of the lights up and love it however had lots of problems doing the second .I finally gave up .I'll get someone in to do it for me .All my helpers live out of town and it's hard for them to come and do stuff for us .I usually depend on my son in law but his back is out .Grand son has to wait for leave .It's a three hour drive for my son to get here and then three back .My neighbor said her grandson is a bit of a handyman and she'll ask him to come over and help .
Tomorrow I'll have to tackle the floor .Once I got the new light lit I saw all the drips of paint on it .I was to tired to do it tonight so I'll just have to go down and clean it tomorrow .It's ceramic to the paint should just scrape off .
Good night all .Mags ,take things easy .The weans need their Gran .

betty2
When irish eyes are smiling

In the lilt of irish laughter

When irish hearts are happy
All the world seems bright an gay
But when irish eyes are smiling
Sure it steals youre heart away
betty2
Sorry friends cant hang around got visitors coming , have a nice day
keelie gal
Och thats a lovely song Betty sure it is wub.gif Have a good St Particks Day
betty2
If youre irish come into the parlour
There,s a welcome there for you
And if youre name is Timothy Mick or Pat
So long as you come from Ireland there,s a welcome on the mat
And if you come from the mountains of Moran or kilarneys lakes so blue
We,ll sing you a song and make a fuss
Where ever you are if youre one of us
If youre irish this is the place for you
keelie gal

In the wee sma’ hours wi betty2.

Can we synchronise our watches, ‘cos oor time is no’ the same,
I’ll be yer virtual visitor when all the mob’s gone hame,
Mind they clean up after themselves - & we’ll hiv oorsels a ba’
Jist in time fur breakfast - & ah’ll be bringing it a’.

So put awa’ thon teapot, we’ll no’ get in that rut,
Cos tannin’s no that good for us, it tends tae rot yer gut,
Breakfast of champions, oor hearts will be singin
Wi’ health in the sma' hours, cos here’s whit ah'm bringin.

[unpacks, several thuds – vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco, coupla limes – where’s yer pepper & Worcesterhire sauce, betty?]

Ah yes, Bloody Mary, all the necessary vitamins, minerals & essential nutrients to sustain life!

Here’s tae us, wha’s like us, here’s tae oor health,
Long life, happiness, & aye enough wealth,
Glasgow’s no’ changed – does that rain EVER stop?
Here, let me pour again, jist anither wee drop,
Here’s mud in yer eye, lang may yer lum reek,
Ah’ve kept ye up, hen, ah’ll awa’, go to sleep.
