Melody
Oh GB does the 'pickin' up' part mean whit ah think it means? sad.gif Oh Mammy Daddy.
Anne1
laugh.gif dont go there melody you might put your foot in it
Gallusbisom
Aye Melody, it does. Morning and evening and that doesn't even include the "doggie bags" when they go walking. Has anyone else tried walking 4 dogs at once? It can be really interesting rolleyes.gif

The part that has me worried, though, is the fact that our daughter that is studying monkeys and does research on their "stuff" is now looking at doing a project on elephants. To quote my Mum, in the name of the wee man and Jimmy the bookie, I ain't picking up any of THAT stuff (besides, I don't think we can have elephants in Unionville, must be some stupid bylaw against it laugh.gif ) GB
Anne1

Isobel
Oh my its great to be back thanks for the warm welcome Betty and Elma.Your so right Betty about the shopping ,but how expensive it is. I was blown away by the prices. The wages there must be pretty high.I loved John Lewis ,what a nice store.I seemed to be in there quite a bit. Maybe because it was right next to the bus station.I saw lots of changes.Bishopbriggs is not as nice as I remembered it.I took the bus tour of the city that was great,saw places I may not have had time to see. The people still as friendly as ever, no change there.
penny dainty
Ah Isobel you make me quite jealous , I would love a wee trip back home , I'm fine most of the time , but every now and then I get real pangs of homesickness .

laugh.gif aye betty ,,,,some members say that the old boards were the best what has changed , and the old chatbox wiz better than this one,,,cin yi fill me in a wee bit as aha wasn't a member then,,,thanks betty,,,,Lass smile.gif
betty2
Dont know what changed really , but it was a better board , We all got along and it was hilarious at times , not knockin new members , but the humour is,nt the same . When we all met for that first big meet back in 2003 we had a ball and there has,nt been one to beat it , but in saying so wee mags meet was a terrific time also. And to be honest the last meet in the horseshoe bar was such a calamity that it has put me off any future big meets. I,ll stick tae the wee wans enjoy them biggrin.gif

Angela Chick
In my opinion i think lately the boards has got very clannish, i suppose you get that everywhere in life so a website is no different. rolleyes.gif
betty2
tongue.gif Yes angela totally agree but there are those who do keep a friendly attitude and the ones that dont well its their loss .Ignorance arrogance and a hint o snobbery but to all this I dont give a hoot After all its like the telly what you dont want to watch you switch off tongue.gif

wee mags
aye I,ll be righ oor wink.gif
glasgow lass
betty, angela and mags,,,,,,the times that i would look into the ggbs before i became a member i did feel that there was a bit of bullying going on, and certain members trying to stuff their opinion down anothers throat, and not only with the guys at times the lassies were the worst to one another,interesting eh.
penny dainty
I come in for a laugh and a bit of lightsome banter, very occasioally a topic goes against the grain so to speak , but I voice an opinion and it's only an opinion mind and move on , I dont like to get into arguments , I'll join a debating group if I want agro.Lets keep it light.
It's so nice to have a laugh with like minded people.I find the Australians very lacking in their sense of humour , nice people don't get me wrong , but there is nothing in the world like a Glasgow sense of humour and unless you are from there it is difficult to understand what I mean as I'm sure you will all know.So I don't want to be nasty or bully anyone , unless ye steal ma sweeties , then yer deid, but do you get what I'm trying to say?
Elma
I know what you mean Betty and Mags, when I joined the boards were funny and also had serious topics which I would sometimes read and not respond because I thought maybe the debate was over my head. As you say, however, even the humour seems rather biting and sometimes even nasty these days, and I agree it is getting a bit cliquish (is that how you spell it!) with PMs going around to the "in" crowd. I'm not in that loop, that's not a complaint just an observation, although it would be nice to have an occasional one biggrin.gif . Having said that I'll still be on the board for my dailly fix and am looking forward to the big meet next year, but only if it is NOT in the Horseshoe.

Can I pop in and give you a wee hand with the housework too Betty, I'm great with a wee duster smile.gif
penny dainty
How are you with the iron Elma?
Kaneman
Mornin all, wake up Betty ahv been bangin on yer door fur an oor, came tae help yeh with yer hooswork, and get mah expat eggs an stuff........Elma where is Kimberley?? We have a Kimberley here as well big hole there!!
Kaneman
rolleyes.gif Penny where dae yeh hide them sweeties.... biggrin.gif
Elma
Kaneman, Kimberley is in British Columbia, Canada. It was called after Kimberley, South Africa as there was a mine here which produced zinc and silver. It closed at the end of 2001 after 100 years of continuous mining, the longest in the world, well at least Canada. Kimberley is now a resort town with a fantastic ski hill and also 3 world class golf courses in the city itself and 4 more within a 20 mile radius.

End of geography lesson...............
Kaneman
