Feel free tae post and answer us right enough wi some of yer auld cheek, only kidding. laugh.gif Yer pals.
Marion Dougan
Melody how thoughtfull of you. My pre chemo party was great. My friend Glenda handed out strive for a cure pink bands. Bob, Jim and Craig are wearing one. I think that si soooo special. They all loved my hair cut. We are having a wee get together a week next Sat. at my place. The guys are going to my sons to stay overnight. The gals are coming to my place, including ma wee ANGEL HAYDAN:) wE WILL HAVE DRINKS ( NAW NO ME BOO HOO) SNACKS AND DO MAKE UP AND HAIR A PYJAMA PARTY, iF i DON'T FEEL UP TO IT, THEY ARE STILL COMING TO CHEER ME UP. Oh sorry the caps again hee heee. My youngest son Craig gave me a blue teddy bear last night, had Baby Boy on the Paws. I always call him my wee baby boy. I thought it was sooo cute. I am thankfull to have such a srong support group. Thank you each and every one of you

No credit taken, Marion. You know our Melody. Just brilliant to call it Marion's Wee But An'Ben.
One idea I had is that you keep a diary and you can upper case to your heart's content.
Eartha Kitt was on Sunday Morning. What a gal! She said she is going to be 79 next January. She is still "purring" in front of audiences. Love Bunty wub.gif

Mags, that's a great one to start off the week. We should think up other Scottish sayings that can be misunderstood. When I first came to America and lived with relatives in Rochester I asked my uncle to be sure and knock me up in the morning. Was my face red when he told me what that would mean in America. I thought they were daft because it made sense to me to be sure that I would not be late for work. So, come on. What others can you come up with. Are you there, Marion? wub.gif Bunty
Tori G

Hi Marion, I'm just droping in to wishyou well and to see your wee B&B. Great idea Bunty and Melody had, a nice cosy wee place to relax with friends. Lizzieloos group hug represents all of us and if w're not in your B&B, just remember we're still sending positive vibes your way.

psYes do keep your pecker up. My understanding is the pecker is the nose and it's a way of saying Hod your head highnd keep your spirits up
stuarty

tammy
Hi Marion,

Just wanted to add my warm wishes to you and a speedy recovery! Hope you are doing well today. Sounds like you have a lot of support close by, that is good. And of course you have a lot of support here. How can you go wrong? Take time for "you" and let others help you out. Take good care of yourself! wub.gif

Hi, Marion, yer wee but'n'ben is noo a B&B. Be sure and serve Oatcakes for breakfast - wish I could find them over here. Gemini is checking the stores where she lives.

I remember the plain loaves with the well fired black crusts. On my first visit home to check on my Mammy after my Dad died I brought one back to the States in my carry-on bag and I was so scared they would take it away from me. Remember that smell of fresh made bread?

Your party with your pals is going to be great. We will look forward to hearing all about it. Love Bunty wub.gif
Marion Dougan
Hi y'all oh Bunty I could go a big ootsider oan butter right now. That's the one thing I have asked my cousin to bring over. Hope to see you with Ria here in Charlotte.

Thanks again for all good wishes

Here's another word that means something different.When I first came to Canada I lived near a shop that sold lots of stuff, household goods kids clothes,etc.The wee old man who owned it was Polish and had a very strong accent as did I .I went in one day with my wee boy for braces and he said "No braces here ,you must see dental man "!!!!! laugh.gif Keep strong Marion hugs from Jakka 13
lizeeloo
Oh yes jakka and Marion...did you ever ask for " kirbies" or is that goin too far back intae the past.... rolleyes.gif

Isobel
good morning Marion ,how you doing today.Getting a laugh reading all the stuff. Its like a blast from the past.When I came here I found Loblaws quite intimidating. I had never seen half the fruit and vegatables they had out on display. Hated to ask anyone what do you do with that. I look back and laugh now.
buntyq
Hi, Marion, you remember what the W.C. was - the toilet. My Dad had an old friend who was really an angel sent from God to make sure my folks were O.K. I always visited him when I would go home to check on my Mother after Dad died. I was sending something back to the States and I asked him if he had any wrapping paper in his closet. Pure bewilderment. Why would I keep that in my toilet. he asked? Also, Marion, if you remember, it wasn't easy to find paper to wrap parcels. I had to remember to take my Mother's message bag when I went to the store. How spoiled we are over here. I used to ask the clerk at Stop & Shop to paper and plastic.
Love, Bunty wub.gif
