Agrand joab bein done here ladies you lot never fail tae amaze me.. Tlkin aboot amazement ohmy.gif Here,s a tale fur y/all

Last tuesday night sittin watchin telly when the phone rings, "hey canada here"says the caller aye oor catherine she tells me that in 20 mins. she,s headin fur the airport tae come hame fur a family celebration. Noo she couldnae post this news cos it wis a surprise visit fur a family member an yi never know who reads this board. Well she goes on meet me at the Citation at 12.30 on thursday. Noo ah didnae know that the citation is the former glasgow sherriff court now a bar restraunt. Well come thursday am makin ma wey up hutcheoson st headin fur the said place. Goat tae wilson st an lookin across the road ah couldnae read the sign so there,s a lady and man standing so ah asked them "is that the citation opposite" the two o them jist looked at me then the lady says" are you betty" Yes says I she then says I.m jaybee "you could have knocked me doon wae a feather the gent was her husband, there was a table booked for us for lunch a belated but lovely surprise birthday treat for me. We were soon joined by catherine her mum and sister

. What a lovely day we had and THANK YOU this is one birthday I will never forget. jaybee it was a real pleasure meeting you what a lovely lady wub.gif
wee mags
what a nice surprise for you betty,Iam glad you had a nice time wink.gif
Elma
What a shock for you Betty, but a lovely one. These kind of surprises are the best don't you think? biggrin.gif
betty2
Most definately Elma, first the surprise of catherine,s phone call and then the sheer coincidence of asking who to me was a complete stranger if I was at the right place to discover that it was jaybee who was there as an additional surprise. No often am gobsmacked but ladies you succeded in doing just that. But in the nicest possible way. Sure its great tae huv freens like this wub.gif
jaybee

Betty, it was great, I enjoyed myself so much and when Catherine is around there are lots for laughs and chat. Just got back last night so I am a wee bitty jet lagged today. I think Catherine heads back tomorrow. Her mum and sister are lovely. Yup, a great day all around and remember, don't speak to strangers, you just never know who you will bump in to. I have a couple of photos and will post them later. Till the next time, Jaybee
betty2
Still laughing at the fact that it was you I aked, amazing coincidence. Right in the heart of glasgow too. rolleyes.gif Catherine should be well on her way home by now. It was a short stay for her. Look forward to seeing the photo . Say hello to John from me.
jaybee
Will do Betty, he thought the lassies were great. A wee funny story about my trip - I had to have a "private" search at the airport. Turns out the underwire in my bra caused the alarm to go off. The UK scanners are really sensitive. Now, how about the spring cleaning in your place, have the curtains been washed? I can do them but as I said before, nae windies and nae stairs. A'm no as young as I used to be so I will take the easy work. Jaybee
jaybee
Okay - forgot about the photies.... number one, from left to right around the table.... Oor Betty, Joanne (Catherine's sister), Joan (Catherine's mum), me (Jaybee) and last but not least, oor Catherine. Will do number two on another post as I think these photies are big and I don't know how to make them smaller.
jaybee
Did I ever tell you I was PC challenged? lol. OkaY, trying again. Picture 1 - the lassies.
jaybee
Number 2 - Catherine and my husband John.
jaybee
Number 3, Catherine's lovely sister Joanne.
jaybee
Number 4 - the lassies again
Avril
Jaybee and Catherine, that was really thoughtful of you both, what a lovely surprise for Betty. The photos are great biggrin.gif

Sounds like a good plan Betty, I am really tone deef so no piano or singing for me but Melody sounds great. Whit dae ye say Melody, are you up for it? I admire someone with a musical talent, jist wish it were me. I hud practice hinging curtains when I was over so maybe I can help there. By the way, ma new curtains are great and we did a great job picking them out and hanging them. Yes, we will do it again, it won't be long till I am back I hope. Jaybee
Melody
Ah've hunted for that song and canni find it anywhere, although I know Ria sang it ages ago on sing song, ah'll have a look.
In the meantime found this one.


With someone like you,
A pal so good and true,
I'd like to leave it all behind and go and find
Some place that's known to god alone,
Just a spot to call our own.

We'll find perfect peace
Where joys never cease
Out there beneath the kindly sky.
We'll build a sweet little nest,
Somewhere in the west
And let the rest of the world go by.

This was Ria's version from 2003 would you believe?


a pal must be a pal forever
someone to share, each little care
may the one you love be always beside you
if you need a friend I'll be there to guide you
cos a pal must be a pal forever
and you've found a pal in me.
Tori G
Wonderful lyrics Melody for a lovely moment. You all look wonderful ladies, great to read about the luncheon, a great time had by all,...my kind of moment!

A moment in time
A chance moment
Etched in time
Forever a chance
Time moment forever etched

When youre down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
Ill come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Youve got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, aint it good to know that youve got a friend?
People can be so cold.
Theyll hurt you and desert you.
Well theyll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but dont you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Oh babe, dont you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all youve got to do is call.
Lord, Ill be there, yes I will.
Youve got a friend.
Youve got a friend.
Aint it good to know youve got a friend.
Aint it good to know youve got a friend.
Youve got a friend.

With the folks next door
Make's it twice as easy to bear `em
That's what friends are for
`cos if you've friends and neighbours

You can hold your head up high
Although you've not a penny
And your house may be tumbling down
With friends and neighbours
You're the richest man in town.
