Ahm aye tellin them tae listen tae their wee bodies, so he piped up 'mum my body's telling me I'm vulnerable today'...God bless him...wee flanneler but ye'v goat tae love that.

Ach tae hell he's only six,we aw need a wee mental health day noo an again don't we.
Ahv the cheek tae be makin popcorn here...ahv no tacklt the lunch dishes yit!!!!
Thae roses sure smell good though...sun's shinin oot the back therr...lovely Autumn day an ahm werrin ma blinkers fur noo..tae hell wae it!
Heather
You have to laugh at that one, " I'm feeling vulnerable today ", that's a cracker, I wonder where or from whom he picked that one up, could it be from MUM.

Went into the town yesterday to get a new cooker because my kitchen is gettting refitted ( when I get the cooker). Got off the train at High St. and there I am walking down towards Argyle St. and this woman is walking towards me, she is staring right at me and I'm thinking who is she staring at, then the penny dropped. I'm singing away to myself and the lips are moving, she must have thought I was talking to myself. Maybe if I had sung out louder some people might have taken pity on me and threw a few coins my way. The only thing is I was singing one of my favourite hymns, 'I watch the sunrise lighting the sky ', depending on what foot you kick with, I might have got badly bruised when they were throwing the money. laugh.gif
Melody
Just for you Heather, it's my favourite as well! smile.gif

I watch the sunrise lighting the sky,
Casting its shadow near.
And on the morning bright though it be,
I feel those shadows near me.

But you are always close to me
Following all my ways.
May I be always close to you.
Following all your ways, Lord.

It always gets you that one!
Catherine
We were over at the neighbours Saturday night therr fur dinner.
Seemingly I me masel wis oan top form beltin oot the show tunes...Amazin how ye kin be at the same nightoot wae folks an thae kin tell ye things ye done that ye cannae minda daen yersel..Ah think it wis the soup Kim made laugh.gif
Heather
Yes well I was sober Catherine, that's why I can remember what I was singing. LOL

Pity you were not there Melody, we could have sung a duet and got hit with even more money.

Melody do you remember when the men used to come around the backcourt singing and the women would throw some coins out the window to them, do you think we could try that. Christmas is coming and we could earn some money. Catherine could bring her wine and we could have a wee nip to keep us warm between songs. laugh.gif
Melody
laugh.gif Heather I can just see the headlines...Two Glasgow Women arrested in the High Street , for their own safety. As they were taken into the police car they were singing hymns at the top of their voices. When questioned, they said they do it all the time on Glasgow Guide.
Heather
Melody, we could have Martin as our witness that we are always singing out of turn. laugh.gif I think if we stick to Carols we'll be ok.
August26
Oh Dear Lord, here you two go again, if you plan on carolling, can I watch, just the thought of it makes me laugh.
David is still working on WFD bags for both of you, hee hee a couple of bags for a couple of bags, let me know if your gonna need a file cake, I'll send Catherine with it, and honestly I think that Martin after reading some of these threads will decline the invitation to join you. tongue.gif

August
Catherine
We'll stick tae onywan...who's Carol? Is she a nice lassie August? laugh.gif
August26

Gallusbisom
Heather, you just brought back a memory for me that I had not recalled in 40+years, the men in the back court singing. Wow! I can remember peering out the staircase windows (wasn't hard, there were a lot of missing panes) Thanks.

Ah'm no allowed tae sing in public, as ma mammy said, oor Irene cin noak the hale choir aff key, cause she sings atween the notes. An it's true, sounds smashin tae me, an I gie it laldy, bit jist whin ah'm alane, itherwize the shouts o belt up, wid bring the polis. G.B.
Heather
Hey you August,
I'll a couple of bags you!!!!!!!. That's you off the Christmas Card list!!!!!!.

When we start singing it will be a case of, " you ain't heard nothing yet".

Actually, there will be no need to send Catherine with a cake file, if the Police try to grab us we'll just jump into our flying machine and take off to a more affluent area. tongue.gif

GB
Some of the backcourt singers were really good.
I can remember one man who had a voice like Mario Lanza, he was well known in Glasgow and I'm sure he made a lot of money.
Catherine
Here Irene....trust me, ahm nae chanter, but ah seriously balieve some weird spirit that thinks she's Babwa Streisand enters ma buildin when ahv hud a few laugh.gif
{wisnae tae the next day ah fun oot some went oot an hud a joint....ah jist thoat everywan wis happy...ahm no intae that so ah wis nane the wiser}
Relax joint polis...Naebudy inhaled!!!!
