Many have passed through this room o mine
Sharing laughter and tears with a friendly line
Four years on this board and two on board one
Six years in all we shared a lot of fun
But I remember the night that it all began
Ah wis sittin INMASEL enjoyin a wee can
So went oan the computer an startit tae type
An afore ah knew it the place was aw hype
It became a place to come fur a laff
An boy o boy did this room take aff

Then came that dreadful time in 2003
When the board went doon an no oan wan knee
But thanks tae martin we aw goat back oan line
An wee mags resurected this wee room o mine
We washt the sterrs in this oor wally close
Cos withoot this room we wur aw loast
It wis in here ah yased tae sit an write in rhyme
Cos back then that wis a wey o passin time
The poems a penned their number ah canny tell
But that wis how it aw startit this INMASEL

Noo there are some who turn up their noses
They,re no interestit in wally closes
But tae us who shared this way of life
We aw remembered oor days o strife
Tae us there wis nae days o wine ,n,roses
But happy wur we in OOR WALLY CLOSES rolleyes.gif

For the past week my heart was sad
But now today it has turned to glad
We are all posting once again
And taking our trips down memory lane
The glasgow that you all once knew
Into a city of culture it has grew
But many of you will remember its past
And those memories of childhood I'm sure will last
Those happy times I'm sure most of you spent
In a room'n'kitchen in a tenement
Glasgow the city of culture it became
But to all of you it will always be hame
No matter how far away you may roam
Glasgow's the place you will always call home

Noo the ferr wance again is comin tae an end
These wee tit bits tae you'se ah'll send
The waverly is still trippin doon the clyde
Wae loats o folk fae far an wide
But also oan this steamer you'll find
Glesca folk o every kind
Maw 's will take their weans away fur the day
Tae Dunoon an Millport and Rothesay bay
Senior citizens wae tears in their eyes
See the empty docks where wance great ships did rise
Many teenagers on this ship do go
Ower tae Rothesay where theres a good disco
Oan the bottom deck a trio play
Music that suits nae matter where you're fae
And if yi want yi cin get up an dance
But wae the rollin o the ship yir takin a chance
There's nowt better than a trip doon the clyde
And this is seconded by all from far and wide


All our yeteryears rolleyes.gif
Whilst takin this trip doon memory lane
Ah remember the good days when ah wis a wean

Betty, m'dear, your wee hoose, is a treat to visit, always. I was not so fortunate as to live up a walley close, just the "big pen" on the Paisley Rd. (do you know I am not sure what that stands for but I know someone who will. George, help, can you explain that for me?) but regardless of it not being a walley close and having very few panes of glass in the stair windows---maybe the lack of glass was something to do with the war? I doubt it, I just think the factor wouldn't dish out the money for them. But I was made very welcome and got to take my turn at the stairs and doing the windows etc. As much like being with family as one can achieve in cyberspace. laugh.gif And then when the group has a meet, it really does become family. Hope I can make it to one, one day. So count me in for the days gone by. Where I come from is what made me who I am today and I could go back tomorrow and feel as if I had never left.

Betty your poems are great. Let's have some more, when you have the time.

Hi GB, here is the only thing I could find about a "pen".
"Pen in common parlance means to coop up or confine. In the present instance, in East-end vernacular it is a big close or passage. Thus a close was generally taken to be a passage about five feet wide, but a pen close was always considered to be wide enough for the passage of a horse and cart."

In some places outside of Glasgow it was called a "pend"
Gallusbisom
George,

Thank you, in my memory (no yestarday ye understnad wub.gif ) there wiz a "works" at the end of the pen. I have no idea what it was etc. but I do remember lorries going in and out. I think that maybe I should remember more but I don't . I will contact the last member of my family and enquire if he has any info. One thing I can be assured of that it was at least wide enough for a horse and cart. laugh.gif

I am so glad that we are permitted to have a "Chat" in Betty's hoose wihout her telling us we have gone off topic .

Not discontent [youre words not mine] but disharmony and there were others who gleefully jumped on yore band wagon. "Bearing the olive branch " for that there is no need I dont consider myself better than anyone else who contributes to these boards. But alas there are those on here who think they are , and I know who they are, so in causing the disharmony you only fed them and they used you as an instrument to get at me. Big misteke on their part, I dont give a toss I never asked to be liked just understood, natural and good sense thinking, dont you agree?

Inmasel is and always has been a good topic and will continue to be so , I started it and whomsoever posts in it do of their own choice. No-one except martin holds a monoply on this site.

Straight talking is what I do and what I.ll continue to do, its what I am unlike others on here whom I could name but wont . Their problem not mine

I thank you for the compliment and I never went to bingo today had a better offer , Think I,ve covered all youre points , and done so in a mature fashion, dont hold with silly chidish games ,but must admit they did amuse me to see adults behaving inthis way.

Enjoy the boards
