Mary48. Just checked out the website you gave. Some lovely Irish proverbs there. I wonder if there is one for Scottish proverbs.?
Catherine
Whit aboot 'furst up best dressed' Rena laugh.gif {Some 'attributes' ahv goat doon tae purrrrfection Mary}
Mary48
Rena, ah find that most stuff is attributed to the Irish...if it's celtic, the web thinks Irish!
us poor Scots and the Welsh seem to miss out..so much for the picture given of the dumb Irish, eh?

Heh...gaun yersel, Catherine:)
Mary48
ah had a quick look...for Scottish proverbs...didnae do blessings as ah dont hink us Scots are really into the 'blessing' patter:)

Scottish Proverbs

Here's some that I found on another page...there may be some the sameas on the link:)


QUOTE
A child may have too much of his mother's blessing.

A dry lent, a fertile year.

A penny saved is a penny gained.

A thistle is a fat salad for an ass's mouth.

Better keep the devil at the door than turn him out of the house.

Bring a cow into the hall and she'll run the byre.

Cutting out well is better than sewing up well.

Every fisher loves best the trout that is of his own tickling.

He that has one sheep in the flock will like all the rest the better for it.

He that loves law will get his fill of it.

It is ill fishing if the hook is bare.

Learn young, learn fair; learn old, learn mair.

Many haws, many snows.

Never go to the devil and a dish-clout in your hand.

Never marry for money. Ye'll borrow it cheaper.

One for sorrow, two for joy, Three for a girl, four for a boy. Five for silver, six for gold, And seven for a secret that must never be told.

One may ride a free horse to death.

The first dish pleaseth all.

What baites one, banes another.

When all fruits fails, welcome haws.




and now.,,,,who can tell us whit they a' mean?
Archie Millar
A don't know who's aroond?---hivnae been around fur a couple o' weeks
A brought this virus ower on the plane (immigration efter me fur importing foreign beasties) so a had this virus an Norah had it we both had tae hiv a course o' antibiotics --we're gettin' over it now
In the meantime this bloody m/c crashed I had a virus attatched to an e mail never mind-we enjoyed oor week in the "colonies" an' will look up the boards tae see whit youse are all aboot!
Now I want to make a statement! ---I received a pm from someone called Biff which stated that I should learn to speak English --Now just let me say (whoever you are)that I can be as articulate as the next person and I would be obliged if you would come on to the "boards" and explain yourself instead of sculking behind pms thank you
Catherine
laugh.gif ...Ah see biffs at it again Archie!! Whoever they are, ah think they jist like tae wind up, cos we aw goat the same pm a few months ago....so jist you ignore them pet, an as fur you biff....Mind Santi Claus is watchin ye noo.
Marg
Archie , I'm sorry you picked up a virus from us Canadian's but we like to share........ just joking............. glad your getting better though and Nora as well. I see your not the only one who gets mail ( mine was by e-mail) from someone on here,I have as well so your not alone and it had made me very up set but then I thought I'm a better person at least I don't hide my thoughts.So now I'm back posting. smile.gif Oh and Archie there's nothing wrong with your English I quite like it !!
Catherine

Mary48
Aw, izzat no great?
a wee meet that we didnae know wis gaunnae happen:)

It's great the way you can get 9n so well when meeting for the first time.


I was thinking abou this the other day after Jean and Stuart had been up at David's.

Maybe some sociologists would like to do a study to see if it would work so well if they randomly picked ppl and told them they'd be meeting up and left those ppl to make the arrangementns and get to know one another over the phone.
Whit dae ye think?
Catherine
Mary, it wis wan of thae last minute nummers pet wherr ahd remembert ahd said tae Fearn when she couldnae meet in November, that ahd huv her ower a day fur lunch.
Realised ah hudnae done it, so gied Fearn a shout therr at the weekend tae see if she could come doon...which she did bless her. Also said tae Chookie wae her bein in the area an it bein last minute, but she couldnae make it. Next time Helen.
So didnae mean tae keep ye's aw in the dark pet, wis a quick as a flash meet.....plus ahm no waantin folks tae stert thinkin "aw in the name a God, here she goes again wae wan of her meets, wish she'd gie us aw peace"... don't waant tae bore ye's aw laugh.gif
