jimmyd
Och Betty 2 you are going to love MargaretP she is a really nice warm person.I still,owe her a meal from when I met her in Adelaide.All sounds so exciting meetings going on all over the place. I agree with you guys that the boards have lost something.Think maybe it has become a wee bit too formal,with having to stay on topic all the time,also we have had our share of trolls,which tends to stop people posting.and,!!last but not least the soor faces,who who do not have any sense of fun at all.So un Glasgow if you like.So yes lets shake off the cobwebs and get back to being Glasgow characters ,you will soon find people posting again,once that happens. biggrin.gif
Marg
It surprises me how many of us sit back and complain about how the board has changed yet none of us seem to be doing much about posting myself included . For my own reasons (personal)I have not been on here very much of late and seldom drop into the chat but yesterday I did and it was surprising there were seven or eight of us there mostly the old gang and we had a good natter.I to miss betty's poem and some of the other ones who write them, the wee kidding with each other , the formilar faces that use to post.First it was the season we blamed then the trolls if we keep uses these excuses we'll not get back to the way things were. Now I've said my wee bit I'm off to have a cuppa tea it's early here.Have a great day everyone!! wub.gif
betty2
Still a good place for me and the friends i have met here fantastic, its now got to emailing and calling each other(nowt tae dae wae the board )jist wee personal things . It used tae be penpals noo its cyberpals and i treasure each and everyone of these friendships.So to leen.catherine, melody , marion and wee mags thank you for just being there xxxxx

fae glesca and betty2
Catherine
Yer very welcome betty...wherr us we hen ? laugh.gif

Ah think the on topic wis the start of puttin foks aff, cos lets face it, everyone see's somethin in a sentence that they could divert roon the coarner traffic wise fur a meenit...then get back oan the right road....but this wis frowned upon an bit by bit it HAS shut doon the flow so tae speak...an Glesga patter's no used to bein shut doon...so ah say lets jist risk bein removed...it wisnae Martins biggest problem an ferr dues if he catches us...but...don't furget we're no slow either..winkywinkwwink

The sun is shining brightly,
the trees are filled with green,
the prettiest blooms of flowers,
on every side is seen,
the fields are gold and emerald,
and all the world is gay,
for tis the month of Mary,
the lovely month of May .

Even after all these years ,that hymn still comes to me on the first Sunday in May.Used to love to see the altar ,abundant with fresh flowers.For some reason there was always a sense of hope and well being in the air.
