August
August26
Tammy:
I know you weren't eating my chocolates, Betty & Marion brought the proper entrance fee to get through my front door, crunchie bars, and Betty also brought Cadbury's Black Magic chocolate, wow, memories, that's what Heather paid me to babysit when I was knee high to a grasshopper, anyway Tammy, I hid all the chocolate tongue.gif

August
Marion Dougan
Hi August, a know yer names Barbara laugh.gif
Heather
It was reported in the newspapers at the weekend that a Glasgow couple have named their son "Glasgow". His full name is, Glasgow McKenzie. His parents consider it a good Scottish name. I feel sorry for the child and can just imagine the ridicule he will have to put up with when he goes to school.

Sis
So that was what your brother-in-law slipped into his pocket before walking you to the bus stop. A box of chocolates. Questions will be asked about this. wink.gif


Tell Tommy I was thinking about him the other day when I was in Woolworths( or the Big W as it is now known) I bought a selection of chocolates and had Raspberry Ruffles among them.

Marion, is August posing as me. lol
Isobel
Talking of names,one of my neighbours has a little boy called Aberdeen. Guess what , they are Korean.She could not believe I did'nt know any unsure.gif other child with the same name.
tammy
I have a friend named September...seriously!
tammy
Betty where are you? I came in to hear all about your exciting trip. Ah well, you must still be restin. I put some flowers in a vase from my garden..they smell nice.


August, we found the chocolates! Very good..went well with our margaritias! We were having our own celebration since we weren't at wee mags!
Heather
Better hide the margaritas before Betty2 gets home, I think she has had enough of the demon drink. wub.gif

We better make sure there is plenty tea & coffee. I left her a packet of Solpadeine Plus as I think she will need it after all that partying.


Hope she makes it to the Airport????????????????????????
tammy
Heather no need to worry...Melody and I finished the margaritas a long time ago! Only tea left now! Did you sweep the stairs, you know how particular Betty is about them. LOL! wink.gif
Heather
Tammy, not only did I sweep the stairs I even swept the pavement. After that I washed, starched and rehung the curtains. laugh.gif

betty2
Isobel
Jimmy can you or some of the others please explain to me in simple terms how to post a picture on the boards.I dont have any problems e-mailing them just cant post them here
unsure.gif
Catherine
Isobel, Try openin up yer pictures file, then click browse on the reply post part, then double click on the picture ye want and it will come up in writing in the browse space.....then ye jist hit reply the way ye normally do after ye'v typed yer post......Archie has given the date of when Martin posted about the downsizin question in the USA Meet...so go check that out awright.
Good luck pet.

Well ahv jist had a phone call, ma wee boy ah took care of since he wis a day auld tae when he wis seven...and is still a huge part of our lives along with the rest of his family....is gettin a special award the morra at his Graduation.
His dad phoned cos it will be a surprise for the wee darlin, so ah'll be there wae bells oan..ahm SO PROUD of him.
He's jist turned fourteen, has an older brother and sister who are very academically blessed, wheras he's had a tougher time tryin tae keep up wae things only because his learnin patterns take a different course in understanding certain areas.
Many a time we've tried tae quell his disapointments when it's been necessary to bring private tutors in, encouragin him an tellin him he is jist as great at the learnin as others, and it's no shame to have to work harder sometimes wae a bitta extra help.
He's worked like a wee trojan the last year to pass this Graduation, so even if the special award is that he goat tae school five minutes earlier afore lunchtime every mornin ah'll STILL be burstin wae pride for him.
Oh somebudy get me a splash...ahm aw verklempt!!...an THRILLED laugh.gif
Marion Dougan
Grrreat news Catherine, enjoy the day!!
Catherine
Marion, his mums in Geneva studyin, so ah widnae miss this for the world...they've always been like ma ain weans, ahv been their legal guardian for years an years, way afore Geoff, an that wis always a stipulation early oan in the datin...If anythin happens tae the parents they're mine...so yer either in or oot but it willnae change where the weans staun.
Ah THINK ah lucked oot when he said nae bother... laugh.gif

Hoi love the pramotion Looby..gaun yersel hen!! Suits ye, ye look smashin!!!!
Melody
Catherine I'm so happy for you, what a wonderful achievement for you as well as the child. I'm so proud of you to have the courage to observe such a responsibilty as to consider taking on another's children. Hopefully circumstances would never make it necessary, however those children could never wish for a better or more caring person to assume a parental role for them should ever the need arise. God Bless. Yer a wee smasher,........................................... when yer sleepin'! laugh.gif
thistle46
Ditto Melody's remarks - it just sounds so Catherine as the kids would say.

These children are truly blessed to have a caregiver like you.

Have a wonderful time at the graduation.

August26
Catherine:
What a great story, sounds like the conversation we had on our trip home to New Jersey, if you remember? our son worked very hard for every grade he got, but you know what, he has more common sense than his sisters and brother who are academically gifted, so enjoy the graduation with great pride, your such a good person.

August
tammy
