Hi there Wee Mags and JimmyD. Isn't this a great place?! Dead impressed by the new format. I feel as if we've been through a tornado and ended up on this beautiful island. It is a shame, though, that all the magnificent and heart-warming posts of the old site have disappeared. However, new beginnings mean new growth. And we can all grow together once again.
(This is weewuman, by the way. Changed my name for the new site) Bye the noom.

"Hello everyone" from Rena ,just had a wee chat with our Rena and she has no time to herself since the big meet with family visiting, last time she was in here she was telling us how she'd wrote for 20 mintues about her trip only to lose it.Well she didn't know all about the failure and had not even had time to read my e-mail. But she is thinking about you all and asked me to let you all know .She's hoping to get on soon.
28th Jul 2003, 08:20pm
jist wondered whit was happening wi the chat facilities, as i was starting to enjoy them
28th Jul 2003, 08:22pm
In the old Board Martin told us where everyone lived. Is it somewhere and I'm missing it.
Betty, it was a shock for most of us and I have to hand it to Mags, aka wee mags, who e-mailed me the problem when I thought my computer was going haywire.
I have a feeling you will present us with a poem soon. I dont think we will forget the old scrapbook. This post will be great for rememberances.
28th Jul 2003, 09:44pm
Ah'll second that Ed wance oor cath gets started there's nae haudin her

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
29th Jul 2003, 12:35am
Re - "Ah'll second that Ed wance oor cath gets started there's nae haudin her", betty2, she better make it real soon, I'm only "holding the fort" until she gets back in here where she should be - cos ah can't keep this up much longer!
29th Jul 2003, 02:13am

29th Jul 2003, 01:47pm
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
Whilst takin this trip doon memory lane
Ah remember the good days when ah wis a wean
29th Jul 2003, 01:56pm

In the wee sma’ hours wi betty2.
Can we synchronise our watches, ‘cos oor time is no’ the same,

Mind they clean up after themselves - & we’ll hiv oorsels a ba’
Jist in time fur breakfast - & ah’ll be bringing it a’.
So put awa’ thon teapot, we’ll no’ get in that rut,
Cos tannin’s no that good for us, it tends tae rot yer gut,
Breakfast of champions, oor hearts will be singin
Wi’ health in the sma' hours, cos here’s whit ah'm bringin.
[unpacks, several thuds – vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco, coupla limes – where’s yer pepper & Worcesterhire sauce, betty?]
Ah yes, Bloody Mary, all the necessary vitamins, minerals & essential nutrients to sustain life!
Here’s tae us, wha’s like us, here’s tae oor health,
Long life, happiness, & aye enough wealth,
Glasgow’s no’ changed – does that rain EVER stop?
Here, let me pour again, jist anither wee drop,
Here’s mud in yer eye, lang may yer lum reek,
Ah’ve kept ye up, hen, ah’ll awa’, go to sleep.
