Now place names. There is an interesting subject. I have two favorites: Cayuse Connection and HooDoo Mountain. Both beautiful places.

I like Termonfeckin. It's in Ireland.

When I lived in Glasgow over 20 years ago, I used to see buses with 'Auchenshuggle' and 'Gowkthrapple' on their destination boards.

We have James Cook to thank for a lot of our place names such as Point Perpendicular, Mount Warning, Glass House Mountains, Broken BayBotany Bay as well as the more mundain names of places named after people such as Pittwater .

My own favourite is a result of Cook running aground on the reef. After he got the Endeavour ashore & repaired he took a ship's boat out to an island on the reef & climbed to the top of a hill to look for a gap in the reef. The hill is now called "Cooks Look"

Both places still exist, YB. Lanarkshire I think. The digital displays on the front of buses these days struggle wi those place names....too many digits. Occasionally you still see Clydeba and Ruthergle, and sometimes Ishopbri

Auchenshuggle reminds me of my daily bus trip on the auld boneshaker that's the 11. Gowkthrapple aye makes me think of someone throttling someone really annoying by the throat, cartoon-styleee. No idea why really.... :lol:

Place names I like; Kingussie, Carnoustie, Inverary. :lol:

Auchenshuggle was the terminus at the end of the Dalmuir Tram Route before the 62 bus ran there. It's near Dalmarnock.

I like Inverary a lot. Sounds like it's both happy and special.

Cornucopia

A great word. Saw it today when reading about Annie Lennox' new album 'A Christmas Conucopia'

Mistletoe is another lovely word we hear around this time of year. Anymore?

I'm going to practise my sashaying.

Snowflake is a lovely word.

Alhambra is a great place name. It means 'red or crimson castle'. I like crimson too and indigo.

Best friends.

They will be in Ediburgh for Christmas and New Years. A wee innocent Glespie lassie and her husband, going home for a month. I so wish I could tap her on the shoulder and surprise her.

I might just do it. Such a powerful feeling shared between us. Daft things shared and great surprises are the norm. She will be thinking of me and I her.

Nicest words that conjures up the nicest feelings. Best friend. Shared total trust is quite magnificent.
