August26
Gallus:
I had a good laugh at your comment about your singing, many a time the same thing was said to me, I remember as a teenager asking my older brother if I could borrow a sweater to go ice skating, the style was baggie sweaters, when he said no I threatened to sing to him, I won every time laugh.gif

August
buntyq
I think I told this story in the old Board but here goes again. My Dad was a polis in Springburn and we were living in Adamswell Street at the time. It was his day off. While a would be Mario Lanzo was singing The Old Rugged Cross in the back courts, his accomplice was trying all the doors. When no one answered he would break in. My Dad put two and two together and chased both of them down Springburn Road. My mother's comments: "thank God John has on a clean shirt".
Melody
Hi ya buntyq, I'll be in touch just off to work as usual.
Well ah jist had to make it clear that me maself, ah'm far too young to remember the backcourt singers....but ma granny told me about them. But ....see if ah practise wi Heather we might make a fortune laugh.gif That and the flying machine...we could be international stars!! Dae ye think? We'll need tae practise Heather, .......ah'll meet ye the night roon the backcourt!
Heather
Melody, we'll need to bring a flashlight torch so people can see us because the backcourts are dark and in case people think we are a couple of cats. laugh.gif We also need a big bag to put all the money in.

Do you think we'll need someone else to pick up the money, maybe Betty will help us out and I heard she is a good singer.

See when we make our first million, we will not be giving anything to that August person for calling us "old bags"!!!!!!!

I better go and start practising my carols. doh ray me fah...............that's me singing in my soprano voice!!!!!!!!!!!
Catherine
ssssshhhhhhhhh....AH KIN HEAR ANGELS!!! laugh.gif
Melody
Ah ma singin' and flyin' pal, laugh.gif Heather ,ah think we'll be a sensation, kin ye dae a soft show shuffle? Jist in case somebudy sends fur the polis! Naw we'll be ...up up and away... before that happens. Noo mind plenty o' lemon and honey fur the voice, yer sannies oan, we need tae make sure the flyin' machines in good order, oh aye an the rope make sure it'll haud us, cause the money'll be heavy tae carry. Betty kin fling it up tae us fae her big bag wance we take aff! .......Flying down to Rio...la la la la Rio de Janiero oh here ah kin jist see us noo. Kin you?
Catherine

Melody
Anyhow, your supposed be singin' Big Spender fur Marion in Sing Song! laugh.gif
Isobel
Thanks Catherine and Jimmy for your welcome back. I have spent the last hour reading thirough some of the posts.Have.nt really had time to get involved so much going on here. We spent most of our time in England going to the nursing home for a few hours every day.Never thought for one minute that Jims mother would still be alive when we left. It was awful to leave knowing that we would not see her alive again. Jim would have stayed on but the doctor could not give us any indication as to how long it would be, so he decided to come home. We will go back as soon as thing's change. Right now I am trying to get the insurance to give us some compensation on our first tickets. Not haveing much luck as we were not going back for a death they say they wont refund any money. So already we have had two trips to pay for and another one coming up.
I know that some of you on the board have gone through the same thing this year loosing a loved one. It was such a terrible thing everyday seeing someone who was so intelligent having to depend on others for everything .The only thing that seems to be working ok is her brain. That in itself is sad ,because she is aware of all the things she can no longer do .All she can do now is nod her head. The folks at the nursing home have been fantastic. They have been so good to her . I know recently ,even on the board you were talking about home care. Well we have no complaints . These men and women are a special breed and deserve a medal. I could not do all the jobs that they are doing . In most cases with a smile. Anyway just popped in to say hi , let you all know I am still here and thinking of all of you .
wee mags
Isobel its nice to see you back ,I hope you and your family will get the strength to get you through this hard time, I never made it to my mother before she passed and the young priest held the mass for her burial until I came,my lastsight of her is her sitting in bed in Killern Hospital tell me she would see me next year,sorry to get morbid,So I will hold you in my prayers
Catherine

I'm loaded with the cold and was in my bed but I can't get to sleep for the fireworks going off. Some of the colours are really lovely but very noisy.

I'll just have a wee look through Betty's cupboards and see if she has any fireworks, maybe I should look in Lee's room I'm sure he'll have some.
Well you know what they say, " if you can't beat them, join them".

Remember, remember the 5th of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot

Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Well Betty, if Marion has been whooping it up with the family then she is probably recovering from a massive hangover. sad.gif

Still in recovery myself as every time I eat anything I'm sick!!!!!!!!!.

There seems to be a lot of people going down with this bug and not just adults, children as well.
August26
Oh the two bitty old ladies Heather and Melody, get well before Marion arrives on the scene, I had what you both have, the throat and right ear were also inflamed, and I couldn't get warm, Tommy said I looked like a refugee, flannel nightgown, with sweatpants, socks, and my fisherman knit sweater (yes Heather the one you made) the boss called and said take an extra day, we're not too busy, nice man, when I returned to work I thanked him, he said you don't abuse sick time so I knew you had to be sick, I hope your husbands are wiating on you both wink.gif

Hey Sis:
Why not there's a 57 year old woman in NY about to give birth to twins, she must be nuts, didn't say if she has other children, she will be 70 by the time they're teenagers, and 75 by the time they graduate high school, if it were me, they'd find my body in the Raritan River on it's way to the Atlantic Ocean dry.gif

August
Heather
Sis
WOW 57yrs old , and here's me only 35yrs old. laugh.gif
Isobel
