Re: Hogmanay

A few years back I had a bonk or two with a Weegie lass. I have a working knowledge of Glaswegian and spent some time in Dennistoun. Lucky, spent no time in Barlinnie.

This is what I call the Richard Burton method. He swore by it, and was the first western white man to make the pilgrimage to Mecca, amongst other interesting places.. Musta worked for him!

Re: Hogmanay

But when Ah'v had a couple o' drinks oan a Saturday, Glasgow belongs to meeeeee!

Oh, but I miss it still.
