Elma
and a saucer too, of course,, no self respecting cup goes without one laugh.gif Oh, the smell of that sausage just drew me in here, have you enough for another wee one????
betty2
This room is up a wally close
Tea is gied oot in china cups tae most
Therrs also beakers tho ah caw them mugs
An the milk comes in boattles no in jugs
Therrs saucers in plenty fur them that choose
An under the sink therrs also booze
Mind yi thats fur speshul occasions only
Sometimes ah huv a wee nip when feelin lonely
Its a glesca hoose fu o fun an laffter
Wherr auld freens meet an share their patter
A rerr bunch they ur who caw in here
Kettles aye oan fur a cuppe cheer
This room in this wally close hus been goin fur a few years
If they ever try tae demolish it it wid end in tears
It has seen many chinges through the sands o time
So therr isnae a bulldosser that will knock doon this room o mine
So its here in this room up the wally close
You,ll find me playin host wub.gif
jaybee
Lovely wee poem Betty, thanks. Noo, dae ye want the plates to go with yer best china, or just the plain wally wans? I am a bit of a bull in a china shop so I will just have the wally wan, jist as long as there is a lorne sausage and tottie scone on it, oh well maybee a wee twopenny pie on it as well. Thanks.
ps: I promise I will stay away from your wee stash under the sink.
Elma

Tori G
Goooood Luuuuuck for bingo Betty! wub.gif I just loved your poems annawe!

Anybody like Pavlova thought I'd bring some in with me and just in time for a square sausage n tattie scone I hear, is there enough? Jaybee. Tea sounds nice too, ah'll have a saucer wae that aswell like you Elma n Weemags, can I pour the tea for anyone, oh before that ah'll just do a quick wip aroon ben the living room so it wont be too cluttered for everyone the day. smile.gif
Avril

jaybee
Pinot Grigio on the go??? forget the tea, I will have the wine with my sausage and tottie scone. I love Pavlova and it goes good with Pinot too so I just might have a second glass, not that I usually take two (ah know, you don't believe me lol). I was too late to wish you luck at the bingo Betty, hope you brought home the bacon.
Avril
That was a smashin' wee night, sure it wiz jaybee ? rolleyes.gif Betty did ye win? Ye missed yersel here but here's a wee song furr ye biggrin.gif


I'm praying for rain in California
So the grapes can grow and they can make more wine
And I'm a sittin' at a honky'n in Chicago
With a broken heart and a woman on my mind
I match the man behind a bar for the jukebox
And the music takes me back to Tennessee
When they ask who's the fool in the corner cryin'
I say a little ole wine drinker me
I came here last week from down in Nashville
Cause my baby left for Florida on a train
And I thought I'd get a job and just forget her
But in Chicago a broken heart is still the same
I match the man behind a bar...
Yeah I say a little ole wine drinker me



betty2
Had a 200 win but had to share it with anither punter. Still 100 wis a nice wee lift

luv yis xxxxxxxxxxx
Avril
Well done on yer win Betty, that's the cue for another song (only ah wiz thinkin' ah might like tae change the 'I don't' tae 'I do' ....jist furr a day maybe rolleyes.gif laugh.gif )
