Blog Scot Award!

Now, you can be assured there won't be many people getting this Award (not many daft enough!) so this is a bit of a rarety - in fact, so far, it's the only one of it's kind!

And it has been awarded to... Melinda (yayyyyy!) for her services to the Auld Scot (that's me) 's lingo and her cheery disposition, even when it's raining cats and dogs here in Scotland (tho' it's as dry as an auld bone in Arizona), and who from hencefoth will be dubbed :

"Lady Haggis of Clartymidden"!

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the Puddin-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace
As lang's my arm.

Haggis Neeps and Tatties
a' washed doon wi' a wee dram o' the guid stuff!

Ye've got tae try it!

Yaaay!!!!!! Ah got me a prize, Ah did! Ah was a'waitin' fer me plaid, an' tae see one wrapped roon me favorite haggis is th' best, Ah tell ye! Ye got me birlin roon an roon oan the swivel chair.

You've made my week, David. And, though it isn't raining here, it is stormy metaphorically. I loved the video link to an address to Haggis. Simply barry! See you, yerr a brammer, by the way.

I hope your other fans
will try their hands
at Scottish slang.
It will make their day,
and they'll have lots to say--And you'll be happy as a clam!

Noo Ah'm thinkin' ay a Scottish poem:
..." Then Scotland's richt, and Scotland's micht,
And Scotland's hills for me;
I'll drink a cup to Scotland yet,
Wi' a' the honours three!"
