Melody
For BETTY

What a difference a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today Iím part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine

What a difference a day makes
Thereís a rainbow before me
Skies above canít be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

Itís heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you

What a difference a day makes
Thereís a rainbow before me
Skies above canít be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

Itís heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you

Hi vgourlay,thanks for the good wishes .It wasn't that I wasn't feelin 'well I was just havin'a blue day . I lost my lovely sister almost two years ago at the end of the month and I still have trouble some days .It would have been her 52nd wedding anniversary on Sunday and I was with her on her 50th .Sadly she passed away just two weeks later . I'm fine now ,it only takes a visit to the boards to cheer me up .When I first joined the group I was at a very low ebb but the support I got from the boards helped me through a very sad time .I've said it before but I'll say it again God Bless all of you
Catherine

You all made me laugh at the Markies biscuits.Years ago I was working on the afternoon shift and planned to go to Marks before work .I asked my pal if she wanted me to pick anything up for her .She asked me to get her some gingerbread.She said there were two kinds a regular one and a Jamaica gingerbread and she wanted the second as it was the best .I decided to buy one for myself and tried it the next day .On arriving at work I said to my pal "That gingerbread was delicious ." She said Jamaica gingerbread .(.yes you all know what's coming )"No" I said "the one I bought from Marks and Spencers.We both looked at each other for a minute and exploded into laughter . The rest of the people at the table didn't have a clue what we were laughing at and just like now it loses something in the telling ,if you had been there I'm sure you would have been laughing too wub.gif .
tammy
Jakka, I got it! tongue.gif

BETTY! Do as your told! You're a treasure, nobody wants anything to happen to you!!!! You're lucky I'm so far away. Maybe we should send Catherine over there.
Catherine

Heather
Reading through the posts, I could not help laughing at Wee Mags saying they got us a wee sandwich. Let me try to describe the ' wee sandwich '.

Think of a french crusty loaf, double the thickness of it. Cut off about four inches long, slice it open and pile it with lots of cold meats till it's about six inches thick, that's a ' wee sandwich'.

I put a ' wee sandwich' on my plate then tried to figure out how to get a bite of it. Only one way, open it up, eat some of the meat off it, then eat each half one at a time. Mike laughed and said " I knew you would do that ", he must have saw the puzzled look on my face.

It was nice to meet Wee Mags & Mike and be able to put faces to names, and we enjoyed our visit with them. The picture's of their g'daughter don't lie, she really is a lovely looking wee girl.

We were in Cape Cod for 5days and stayed at the Irish Village, and enjoyed our stay there.

We went to Hyannis and went a sail out to Lewis Bay over to the
Kennedy Compound. We also went the Pilgrim's Monument in Provincetown. Provincetown itself was an eye opener, but that's another story.

jakka13
Hi Betty,I see that Catherine sorted you out .Do we need to tie you to the bedpost to make you rest . You know we're all delighted at your great news and just think how bad we would feel if you do something foolish.I promised you a wee funny storie about my Granny. We lived in a room and kitchen with an outside toilet. My Granny was blind and lived round the corner .She could make her way round to our house by touching the wall and counting the closes.She used to wear stays and a long bra with whale bones in it and lysle stockings rolled at her knees with garters. Well my sister was getting married and the wedding had been in the works for about four years. The day arrived ,my oldest sister had a long dress with four skirts , I had a long dress with three skirts my mammy was done up in a rig out with a hat with a big feather and my Dad was pacing up and down in a tux smoking his pipe . My lovely sister had a dress and if you counted the lace overlay and the stiff petticoat it had seven skirts .I dont remember how many yards her veil had .Well she had just finished getting into the dress and veil when she decided she needed the toilet. Pandemonium, my Mammy said she would have to take a pail in the bedroom and use that , no way says my sister . They tried to wrap her in a sheet but we couldn't get all of the dress and veil covered. In the mist of all this panic the key turned (remember when we all just left the key in the door?)and in comes my Granny , she opened her coat then her cross over overall and stood there in her steys and bra . My Mammy yelling Ross don't look at her , my poor auld Grannie says"In the name of God Bella ,how am I supposed to fasten these to my stockings?" The new bra had little wee suspenders to fasten it to the top of the steys .We almost all ended up in a heap we were laughing so hard . wub.gif

It sounds like you had a great trip Heather and I'm looking forward to hearing about Provincetown. I'll be watching for that post. Were you able to move after eating Mag's "wee" sandwich?

Betty. I don't want to nag but I will anyway. It's really important that you follow the doctor's orders and DON'T DO ANYTHING! Shleppin' groceries for sure was a no-no. You have to avoid picking up and carrying anything fairly heavy. ( A glass of vodka or a cuppa tea would be OK and you might even get away with one of Mags wee sandwiches), bending is also to be avoided but bending the elbow is permitted so be a guid wee lassie - just sit and drink yersel silly.

It seems like everyone's been busy keeping Betty's place sparkling...does that mean another party's coming up, Ummm?
Thanks for all your good wishes gals and I'm glad to be back among you .
Tori G
Hi Betty, naughty you, u strong willed woman u, rest means rest and as for your groceries and stuff get yer weins/friends/neighbours,.. tae do your shopping/housework,... and put yer bliddy feet up/get in here or watch tv or write some poems,..ah dont know???..geeezis joani macaroni.

Gemini
hey Heather glad to see you back "hame" safe and sound, I was having a piece of "that" cake the other day and I was thinking of you and ah raised mah fork tae toast yi, well thats me off the morra fur a couple o' weeks tae Georgia, will be meeting up with Bunty and then hopefully meeting up wi Marion too if she is feeling up to it, Marion says bring Bunty wi yi if she cin make it so we will see whit happens, this has been a real busy week here lots of running but gonnae relax fur the next two weeks tho' I doubt it as my daughter will be having her "grand opening" so will be daen mah "hostess with the mostest" part, so I wont be on. TA TA the noo. smile.gif
tammy
Betty, how you feeling today? Hopefully a lot better. I went shopping in Asda when we were there. I n fact we were overloaded at the airport when we left...our suitcases were weighed down with all the chocolate bisuits and treats we were taking home! My husband was beside himself when he saw how heavy the cases were, but we got away easy ..the wee woman took pity on us and we only had to pay $20. for the weight. His Mum was thrilled when she got her care package of all her favourite things. I don't think I'll be allowed back near that store when I go back again..not if Phil has any idea of where I'm going!

Isobel, I did the dusting, does that mean I can come to the party now?

Catherine put your feet up, I've brought a fireman to massage your sore feet. tongue.gif
Heather
Gemini, I have been shattered since I came back home. After all the sightseeing on Cape Cod ( can't remember some of the places we went to. ) Washington and Atlantic City where I gambled all of $15, never been much of a gambler, I prefer to go around the shops. The bedrooms in the hotel in Harrar's were very comfortable. I had a room overlooking the Bay, it was a lovely view.

By the way, I loved the gateau, I finished it off that night. laugh.gif

Did you enjoy the macaroon bar?????

Back in Woodbridge we went to a place I think was called 'The Cheese Factory' for lunch, and for desert I ordered cheese cake, which they served with a big scoop of fresh double cream, yummy.
tammy
Heather where did you put it all..the food you ate? You're just tiny! That sandwich you described sounded like a family meal! laugh.gif
Heather
Tammy it was like a meal, that is why I laughed when Wee Mags described it a a wee sandwich.

Im not that wee, I am 5ft 3ins, well ok 5ft 2 1/2ins, but what's a half inch. The funny thing is people think I am taller because I am slim.

The first time I went to America, Tommy asked Jessie what height I was and she said about 5ft 7ins. So there they are at the airport and Tommy is looking at all the tall females, then he recognised me from picture's Jessie had shown him and started laughing. You see I had long hair for many years and wore it up a lot and also wore shoes with stiletto heels, so I did look tall.
When Tommy saw me I had my hair cut short and wearing flat shoes. Jessie was speechless when she saw me, as she had never seen me with short hair and for the first time realized I was not really tall.
tammy
Heather that is a funny story.

I was just off the phone with Betty and she said to tell you all that she is being a "VERY GOOD GIRL" now. She is a bit tired, but sounded great. She had a couple of friends over and they were chatting and having a wee drink . So, that's very good. Hopefully soon she'll be 100%! wub.gif
