Rena dont you go making yirsel a stranger in here Diet ur no we still need yir delightful company Am ah gonny be seein u at wee mags in june hope so luv fae betty
I was just thinking how the likes of Betty and myself who live here in Glasgow and love the place kind of take it for granted really, the funny things people say, the way we love our own Glaswegian humour, the architecture that has totally spoiled us without us even realising it. It just struck me that as much as we can bring a laugh and some news of home to you who live abroad, just how much you bring to us in return. I think because you who live abroad talk of the place with lovely memories and happy thoughts of youth and childhood and family, it confirms to us here just how lucky we are, and I'd just like to say thank you all. Wonder if a'hm huvin' a whirly day ? Ah've went aw romantic there, sure ah huv!! laugh.gif Don't worry ah'll be back tae ma usual nippy self in a minute! Take Care all
That wis lovely Melody, same tae yersel hen.

Oh well, nippin oot tae get milk here afore the next downpour...

Here keep an eye oan oor Rena when she pops in, ahm feart she slips doon a drain soon wae that Atkins diet stuff biggrin.gif
A'h think a'hm ok noo Catherine, thing is will a'h recognise Rena?
Oh ah'm that whirly the day!! laugh.gif Mind and no be long, ye might huv tae help me pull her up fae that drain!
Huv nae fear, ther's still too much aw me here....But havin a wee problem. Been 8 days, and everything ah put in mae mouth, disnae want tae leave me.hrmmmm. Ye get mae drift. Anyway spent the whole day yesterday trying everything under the sun,including a wasted $lO.OO at the drugstore for a bottle wie a long tube oan it,tae nae avail. Wis gettin frustrated,especially when Don said well next step,the outpatient dept at the hospital. One last shot,ah filled the "wasted bottle wie hot water and salt..BINGO...A start anyway. All this even though I was drinking 8 glasses of water and metamucil daily. I am not hungry,but I would love a nice plate aw Mince and tatties. ...wish me luck,talk later....Rena rolleyes.gif

What can I say Betty the meet is not just for me I'm no star o the show by any means. I'm just looking forward to friends on GG meeting and having a wee time together matters not who.I sent of your number to Margaret P as she asked but see from this last post she must have found it again. Margaret are you having a senior moment there?
I've not started the packing ...... it's still in the planing stages of what to take I canna fit in the kitchen sink my case is to small.
As for Roger all I will say is heaven help you when you meet him he'll drive you mad once he gets to know you until then he'll be quiet as a mouse. cool.gif
Whit's the matter wi everybody, no many laughs on the boards these days, no many laughs here either, a'hm away tae work as usual..... sad.gif a lot of topics are very interesting right enough. ( If a bit dry) Can we no summon up the fun it used to be again. C'mon the topics that were common to everybody were a good laugh!
Maybe it's jist me! Sunny day here, well at the minute anyhow.
Love to all. Take care.
Has anybody seen that Archie Millar, a'hm gonny huv tae buy him an alarm clock!! Tempus Fugit!! Is that how ye spell it!!
See when ye try tae be smart, ye always get caught, sure ye dae!
