  1. Am here because i want tae post somethin but tryin no tae confuse too many folk, mahsel included, The previous post had a mention of me have a double chocolate muffin and I did the same thing this morning, in Windsor whaur I spent the night, Was Wednesday and Thursday night in Ridgetown...two days of bridge playing and a Friday aa meeting. Decided, last night tae visit London (ontario)and picked up my income tax paper work which needs tae be completed and sent in; government has stopped a guid portion of my income until they get the paper work. I am missing my English lady and that is aw ahm
  2. canny lass: right enough, it has been sweltering but yesterday we had rain, in Windsor, thunder lightning pourin buckets and a cooler breeze....wonderful. Today am in tje wee burg of Ridgetown and the weather isnae too bad, mind Ridgetown always seems tae have a breeze and a smile oan it's face. The ithur day it was the "lakers", my furst sighting of them since last year: some are laden and lay very low in the water, ithurs are here tae pick up and they ride quite high. Another thing was the fire flies, aboot five or six nights ago; nae idea why there are so many oan my front lawn. Bridge t
  3. One thing for sure is that I like this place...like the ithur glasgowwestend annaw but need the auld mac for that. Thur isnae much that i wid change aboot my last few months but I seemed tae have been marking time, in some areas....didnae write very much and started tae question mahsel before opening my mooth: I dae hauld my haun up tae writing and talking rubbish but every once in a while mibee i need tae and people have been awfy kind, no so much kind as tolerant, i suppose. The other side of that is the amount of tremendous posts thit I have read, posts thit make ye think a wee bit. Oany
  4. Well, it did cross my mind but i cannae.....the wee beastie wid be hame alone far too often. mind I cuid mibee have a twice weekly bridge session in the house and the beastie wid have loads of company. the thing aboot animals is that I am very much aware that they give far mare than they get and am an awfy sissie when they die. tam
  5. furstly, I have been neglectful but am sure thit naebody wid deny this auld man a period of times thit wur truly memorable, and since the early part of January I have enjoyed jist aboot everything thit man can....i really did "slip the surly bonds". I saw a West End play. Wonderful in itself but the pleasure immensely added to because of the company I was in: the lady loved the play and her laughter was an added bonus. Came back tae Canada and was joined for a very short period by lovely lady, a lady whom I do believe did enjoy her Winterlude....Toronto, Niagara Falls and Ridgetown and none
  6. Am using the (Windsor Ontario) library computer....nae idea whit am daein as tae living accommodations but thinkin of jist stayin in Windsor, wid much sooner stay in Ridgetown but thinkin of taking anithur uni course.....dinnae ask cos ah've nae idea whit am daein. nearly finished a book by Demnise...she uses "sloped in" at least three times and describe a MAN as "sashaying"...the lassie needs a new editor and someone should tell her that she isnae competing with Rankin (he has a proven track record and brilliantly has sustained a level of excellence with ONE central character) his last Rebus
  7. It is a wee bit past one in the efternoon, here. McDonalds earlier; a double chocolate muffin with two butters and a double double coffee.....$1.46, which isnae too bad. Maistly auld folk having late breakfast. A man we a guitar and a repertoire of C&W from some years ago....did a few George Jones, Merle Haggard and Hank Snow....he was well received and there were no objections from management or the other patrons. The hoose here is far too dusty and for me tae dae the dusting isnae worth the coughing fits....I was thinking of running a hose frae the upstairs bathroom and letting the hou
  8. Well done Harper....high praise from a man thit kens aboot photaes. tam
  9. London Ontario: Hot and humid.....Windsor: Extremely hot and humid...... Ridgetown: Hot and humid but with a constant breeze. now looking for a flat in ridgetown...or a house share with no smokers. tam
  10. Thanks to whomever for the return of Wullie. tam And I shall try and be back tomorrow.
  11. My Missy was a tiny wee stray, nae front claws. The kids brought her intae the hoose and I wasn't supposed to know. I didn't for the first few days but she came calling, lay on my chest when i was sleeping one off. The girls were whispering that she would wake. I was awake and the fact that she didn't bite me was surprising because she was in attack mode for most of her furst year with us....seems she bit everyone of my family and anyone who visited. We had her for 27 years and many nights she would wake my wife so that she would be at the door when I came of the road; nae idea how she knew I
  12. Nae idea why Glasgow is no gettin mair visitors. Mind I widnae criticize Edinburgh, a grand place for the wanderer. I almost always talk about Glasgow when I meet folk who are going tae any part of Scotland but folk that have never been tae Glasgow (or just passing through) are no that interested. Oan the ithur haun, I have met a number of people who say things like,"ay, yur right, i had never really thought of Glasgow as a place tae visit until I spent a few nights there....God, I loved the place"....like a woman frae Perth said tae me, "thing aboot Glasgow is that yur never lonely, I jist lo
  13. Noo am lost:- SSSOOOOO: i ustae have a we drawing of "Oor Wullie" as my avatar, or whatever it is called, and noo it is gone. I am wondering if it is due to copyright laws or is the auld imac jist being mair selective when it comes tae photaes or reproductions of drawings. tam
  14. Had a look at the garden (Windsor Ontario) yesterday:- Am gonnae need a few days tae sort it oot. Wull need tae use a grass whip because the grass is much too thick and some of the thistles are six feet tall. Difficult tae see the berry bushed but two of us did manage tae grab handfuls of the wee red currants, black currants (jist a few have ripened) and loads of small gooseberries, which are turning red and are very sweet. Plum trees look guid but nae plums....squrrels have been busy. And speaking of squirrels: three holes through the fascia board and the squirrels have moved intae the att
  15. Harper Lee: am no positive and am no googling but am thinkin thit Harper Lee was an author from the south (Southern States) (tae kill a mockingburd) ?????) I do like the name "Harper" and nae idea why......mind thon glasgowwestend "Harper" is well thought of by the vast majority of the folk oan this site AND the young lady is my friend. tam PS oan a different site, a footie site, my avatar hasnae been removed.
