Melody
For Wee Mags, hope it cheers you up!

When first I saw wee Maggie's face
Richt heid ower heels in love I tumbled,
And thoucht the while she smiled on me
The Angels oot o' heaven were humbled.

When next we met 'twas early morn,
Her teeth were oot, her hair was shaggy;
She tried to smile, but oh! - Said I,
'Is't you, or is't your mither, Maggie?'

laugh.gif Get Well Soon xxx
Heather
Well I'm too tired to do any housework because I had the three g'children over night and I'm worn out.
Left the house with the two girls about 11-30am ( the g'son went to meet his Dad to go to Parkhead) to go to the swimming pool. The nearest pool to us closed down over a year ago for repairs so we have to go to Tollcross, that means we have to walk down to the Main St. get a bus to Wellshot Rd then walk what seems like a mile to the pool. We came out and got another bus to Parkhead Forge and went for a MacDonald's, we got home just after 4 o'clock.
So if someone makes the tea they can have a share of the doughnuts I bought in Greigs, yummy.

Hey Betty is there an easier way to get to Tollcross, and don't say take a taxi, that is what the g'children always say. laugh.gif
The only other way I can figure out, is to take a bus to Parkhead Cross then another one along Tollcross Rd, it cuts out that long walk.
August26
Hey Sis:
So much for your public transportation, do it my way, get a car, drive there, that's the easy way.
And don't anyone butt in on this, cause we're sisters and we will gang up on you so there tongue.gif

August

PS: Catherine did you hear me......................LOL
jimmyd
Buy a bike Heather!!!!!Kin jist see you, wi your wee green an white helmet,batterin doon Shettelston road,like a wee linty!! biggrin.gif
Heather
Sis, I have not had a car for many years now so if I bought one I would have to take a refresher course in driving. The cost of running a car here is too expensive I prefer to spend my money on other things.

Jimmy, if I got a bike it would have to have an engine on it or my old legs would get worn out pedalling, and a side car for the g'daughters. Could you just imagine me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just last week coming out of the local corner shop that is on a slope, I took the g'daughters scooter off her and scooted down the slope right into a relation of mine who was passing with her daughter, she was laughing her head off at me. I didn't care I enjoyed it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now the green & white crash helmet would be no bother as my son still has the one a friend got for him when Celtic won the European Cup. It has all the names of the Celtic players on it and the year they won the cup. smile.gif
Melody
Morning Archie, how's it gaun! laugh.gif
Heather
Yes how are you Archie. You have been very quiet recently, go on give us some of your patter. wink.gif
Heather
Oh dear it seems Wee Mags is not well. So we better get this place cleaned up for her coming back.
I see Betty has put a rota up and as it is her room she has appointed herself the supervisor.

If August did the stairs properly she would not always be made to clean them again. She is too busy rushing off to the ice skating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I've cleaned the kitchen and baked a nice pie for Wee Mags but that Yankee Mike is not to get any for being nasty. If he ever comes here we should all grab him and throw him in the Clyde!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ohmy.gif

See that's whit happens they jist take ye fur granted, that's how a'h ended up sittin' in here amongst the ashes waitin' for Buttons. But see when oor fairy Godmother comes we'll be away tae the dancin'!! In fact we might be away wi Prince Charmin' an a fireman.
Heather
A fireman again is it, good grief Melody, can you not keep your hands of they poor firemen. Well if you want one then if you set the lum on fire you'll have them rushing out to help, maybe if you act the helpless female they will even give you a fireman lift. rolleyes.gif ............and if you do set the lum on fire I'm not cleaning up, have you ever seen the mess that soot makes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ria I think you and I should get out of here and leave Melody to dream on.
Melody
Never you mind Melody Dreamin' On, Heather. I'm no past it yet!! laugh.gif
August26
Melody:
I have to send you a picture of the Woodbridge Fireman, though your husband might object, I do have a Fire Company address book for you, if I send it to:
Melody Of The Glasgow Guide
Glasgow
Scotland
do you think it will arrive in your mailbox?????????????????

Ria, I know how much work you did at Betty's which is the reason your taking a nice vacation up to Cape Cod, bring home some of those nice Cape Cod candles, and please don't wear your red hat and don't forget to stop at Wee Mags on you way up 95, throw Yankee Mike in the Long Island Sound, we won't tell on you, Have a wonderful time. rolleyes.gif

August
Melody
Sadly a'h don't think I'm that famous August, don't worry aboot ma husband he knows a'hm daft! laugh.gif I'll pm you my address.Thanks a lot I really appreciate that kindness.
Heather
Hey Sis, put the picture of the fireman and the two dolly birds on this thread then we can all see it.

Well Melody, you might not be past it, but with all the 999 calls you keep making and yelling fire the poor firemen are worn out. laugh.gif
August26
Sis:
Who are the two dolly birds, are you referring to Gwen & Katie, we used to call them the dolly girls, now they said we have to call them the princesses since they are all grown up at 10 & 7 years, sorry I need Ross to tell me how to put the pictures on here, you saw the picture of the Fireman, similar to what Rose has, they get a picture taken every year right before the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

I sure hope your not calling Tommy and David dolly birds, as David would say, Aunt Barbara your trying to cause an international incident, this time you can't chase him with the broom, your too far away. tongue.gif

August
August26
Hey everybody:

I'll give you an even better laugh, what I actually did was wrote out my name and address on a pm with a wee note and sent it to you.............I thought..............but I sent it back to masel!!

Then I thought I'd done it again to you this time, and forgot the address!

I think this is a sign of things to come!! and it's only Wednesday!

Anyhow ye didnae need tae tell everybody did ye. (smillie)
Don't you dare send ma book tae the Peoples Palace, much as a love them in there, they'll no appreciate the firemen like a'h do!
Melody

Catherine
Leen this is betty's "in Masel"...folks always come in here tae blether pet, masel included, an you an aw.

It's no fair to expect others if it's no their fortay to go intae politics or litrature or whitever. Ah'll happily post in aw these topics wae an input, but frankly ah cannae start them cos ah don't know enough about them to be articulate enough to start them.

Oan ye go an start some topics, ah kin only speak for masel in sayin ah'll try to keep up wae whit ye post, but ye cannae blame those that are happy wae whit they're doin.
At least they're postin.
Naebudy is stoppin anyone else fae postin.
The more the merrier, so oan ye go, you're no postin enuf the noo either and we miss yer input.
Kin ah jist say don't go tooo big brain oan me pet....ye no ah'll get it aw wrang, jist gies a simple topic tae start wae laugh.gif
August26
Melody:
I'm glad to see I'm not the one losing it here, but I won't pick on you, Mags lives 70 miles north of me, so I won't take my chances, I don't want to be looking over my shoulder for her. cool.gif

Ok Marion,
Your the dolly girls, was that picture on the GG, I never saw it, I'm so happy to hear Tommy and David were'nt being called dolly birds.

Mags:
Can we redeem ourselves from picking on Melody, BY, throwing Mike in the Long Island Sound, before we go on our Crusade, and since we will be travelling by land Melody is joining us, those of us on this side of the pond will start out in a row boat and sail up the Clyde, I hope someone has dinner ready for us.
Mags, tell Mike Tommy is reading the story of Chesty Puller.

August

Heather
Sis, get your head straight. The picture is not on the Boards, I'm asking you to put it on. Betty showed me the picture with herself Marion & David.

Melody, we don't need to row up the Clyde we'll just get the flying machine out and we'll take the high road and they'll take the wet road and we'll be in Scotland afore them. laugh.gif

Just think of the fun we could have dropping water bombs on their wee rowing boat, or is that what August would call an "International Incident".
Marion Dougan
I didn't see the pic. either Heather. I just knew we were the DOLLY BIRDS
