You couldn't look more prouder if he was your own son! Nice picture...I liked his tie! Well done...two awards! That's great! sleep.gif
A lovely photograph Catherine, congratulations to the both of you, a job well done! Like yer suit!
A terrific picture Catherine.

It really warms the heart to see children who have to work really hard at their school work get an award. More especially in this case when he got two. A great confidence booster.
Good luck to him.

I've had a hard weekend. We went to the Kings Theatre on Saturday to see South Pacific then on to an Italian restaurant for a meal.

Today being Father's day our son and his family came for dinner and I was left to wash a mountain of dishes.
Every now and then I think I should buy a dishwasher but then I think it's a waste of money for two people, then I have days like this.

I'll just have a wee voddy with you Betty and Marion, just for medicinal purposes mind, after all that wine you might find me still lying here in the morning. rolleyes.gif

I'll just have my morning coffee...still trying to wake up. Heather..nobody helped with the cleaning up and dishes! Jeesh!!?? Put your feet up, I'll get you a drink.

Dae ye know that if ye'd never telt us ye wur chuffed and proud o that boy we'd never have known! laugh.gif Enjoy it all Betty, no one deserves it more than you, what a wonderful job you've done for Lee, he loves you to bits for it all Betty for a lifetime. God Bless. It makes me feel as though life really is worth living to see such goodness shine out of a person, that means you pal! I'm so proud of you, even if ye did steal ma fireman fur a wee minute or two.

Sounds like a lot of excitement at your house! Things certainly have changed...the boys seem to really go out of their way these days and spend almost as much time in getting ready as the girls do! The end result is nice though! It's good to see. We were in a suit shop the other day buying Phil a new suit and the boys were all in picking out their grad suits. They seemed as excited about how they would look as the girls buying their dresses. The Manageress said she can't wait for it all to be over! LOL! I bet your grandson is just as proud of you! He knows what you have done for him and continue to do. You should also be proud of yourself! Good for you! Take lots of photos! Then put your feet up and have a little drink and enjoy the quiet while you can! biggrin.gif
Marion Dougan
Awww Betty a know you are sooo proud of Lee. Yeah, changed days... a Limo. Cripes we were lucky tae git the bus ferr :rolleyes
Marion isn't that the truth! LOL!
Betty CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Ah cannae believe {bet you cannae either} that Lee's oan his way in life noo. Brilliant news about the apprenticeship, fingers an toes crossed for him. If aw it took were manners and personality he'd be runnin the company that's interviewin him.
As for the Graduatin ball.....ah wish ah wis younger ya bandit...ah kin smell his aftershave fae the outfit sounds tae die for...Oh Melody, if ye'd tae see him ye'd be furgettin the fireman hen laugh.gif

"Photies please" and best wishes to Lee a job well done!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif
Congratulations to Lee, and yersel Betty 2. You must be real proud of him. I see Graduation time, in Glasgow is just like it is here. Limos,Tuxedos,and beautiful ball gowns for the girls. Like Wee Mags, I had 4 who graduated,with 3 Graduation dances to prepare for. (twins). On each occasion,after the ceremony in which they received their diplomas, a big party was always held in our Garage, where they danced the night away,with us joining in now and then. I tell you, we had up to 75 kids, many of whom had been our home many times over the years for house parties,which I permitted them to have once they reached the age of l5. Nothing damaged,or destroyed. And around 6.OOam,most of them donned their graduation gowns and headed for MacDonalds for breakfast. Great memories,that I shall always treasure. And you will also Betty,so snap away,and share your future memories with us. Hope Lee gets that apprenticeship...Rena wink.gif
Well gang guess whit ! ah wisnae satisfied wae wavin them aff in therr limo ah pusuaded Jacqui (thats Lee's biological mammy) tae drive me tae the hotel (Bothwell's jist up the road fae me ) an therr ah joined aw the ither proud parents who hud the same idea as me . Well let me tell yis every wan a class act the girls were beautiful in therr dresses an the boys dashing , some in kilts others in tuxedo's and of course ma boy like others also in dress suits. The limo's came rollin in it wis like a night at the oscars. An melody guess whit ,the last to arrive were a group of girls who had hired a FIRE ENGINE an boy you should huv seen this fireman even ah wis droolin at the mooth rolleyes.gif . A great night was had by all and will see aboot gettin these photo's up hmmmmmmm
Brilliant betty!!!!
Cannae wait tae see the photo's
{Noo did Lee come in the same day he went oot?} laugh.gif
Sounds like it was a great night Betty. Did you stay for long?
I saw a crowd of boys leave from a neighbours house and they were all dressed to the nine's and had a stretch limo.
The school dances have become a big hit here and I think they call it their Prom just like the USA. I think it's great to see the boys and girls all dressed up so nice.

Hiring the fire engine seems to be quite popular. One of my neighbours hired it for her son' birthday party.
When I saw the fire engine outside her house I wondered what had happened, and then the children came out the house all excited with firemen helmets on and got in the fire engine and were all shouting and cheering as they drove away.

I hope you took a lot of pictures. Did you get one of the fireman????????????????? laugh.gif

Now Catherine don't be nosey, if Lee got a lumber do you expect him to kiss and tell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Noo c/mon catherine its the year 2004 no even ah come in the same day as ah go oot rolleyes.gif
After the ball was over and until the break of dawn
Thet aw went tae a disco and danced till the stars no longer shone
I hope therr wis no hearts broken and a good time was had by all
Cos this was therr grand finale and they aw had a ball

Dae ye know ah wiz sitting here happy as a lord because it's ma holidays and singing away to maself, and my daughter says to me. " Ye know how the room in the old person's home is booked already well I'm sendin for the taxi early" whit dae ye think o that!! mad.gif
That was a terrible thing for your daughter to say Melody, ordered a taxi indeed,!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you should have told her you prefer a fire engine. laugh.gif
Proms, Proms and more Proms, thank you Lord we are through with that stage in our lives, yes Mags the daughters are so panicy, the boys cool, calm and collected, Junior Proms, Senior Proms, boyfiends proms girlfriends proms, so many of them this happens when they all go to different schools, several years ago the public schools here in our town started a Graduation night, after graduation the, graduates go to an all night party at the local gym, they are bussed from the high school, about 10:00P.M. and return around 7:00 A.M. these young adults have a blast, they are chaperoned, the night is well planned out for them with a lot of activity, music dancing, food, the senior class has fund raisers all year to pay for this and it is quite popular, and growing every year, our son and his wife just attended their 10th year reunion, the topic for most of them that evening was about the fun they had graduation night, so it does have longlasting good memories for them, by the way Melody this son is a Fireman so he doesn't need to hire a Fire Engine, I have to tell David about this hiring out of Fire Engines, he's not gonna believe it, especially when they cost around $700,000.00


Martins Tartan Army
The fire engine is not hired out by the Fire Brigade. This fire engine was old stock that was sold off so a couple of guys had the bright idea to buy it and hire it out. It has become quite popular and is usually hired for childrens birthday parties.
That was the first time I heard it being hired out for a Prom dance, but no doubt it has been hired for other occasions.

So when the Station David is in gets new stock tell him to buy an old fire engine and he can have a sideline hiring it out. The children all love wearing the fireman hats so he'll have to get some of those. You can hire it out for the next meet.

You of course can do the books, and I'll be expecting a percentage of the profits for giving you the idea. Remember you heard it here first. laugh.gif
wee mags
