#1  Postby Mirrorless » Jun 25, 2018 12:45 pm

Hello people. Stumbled upon this forum doing a googlet and thought I'd see what goes on here!

I'm a retired old fashioned atheist with a leaning to the left politically and a rational turn of mind. I stomp around the southern lands of Scotland - though I am a sassenach to my shame.

That about sums me up. Will have a bit of a read.

"You take the high road and I'll take the low road, and I'll be in Scotland afore ye"

I just looked this up thinking it was Glasgow, quite surprised to find it was Scotland, and the low road is the spiritual path.
Well I guess that fits with this forum, the spiritual path is definitely the low road around here. Welcome!

Had to look up sassenach! I’m sure Ani won’t mind.

You're supposed to look up a Scotsman, not a Sassenach!

A local expert who can shine light on that kilt commando myth.

I wear normal underwear with my kilts, for the same reasons I wear normal underwear with regular pants. I have read once that even before the times of modern underwear, the long tails of the shirts or tunics they wore served the same purpose.

I can't say I've had the pleasure..or otherwise..of donning a kilt - though I do have a tartan scarf somewhere I think.

Originally from the Oxford area and still retain the accent, which of course puts me under immediate suspicion in my current neck the the woods.

Many thanks for the welcome.

Ah, whereabouts in Oxfordshire?
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

A delightful little village near Burford. I moved around quite a lot for work but I still miss it almost every day.

Lovely. I spent some years living in Didcot and working in Wallingford. A bit less picturesque in Didcot than in your neck of the woods, I suspect.

Heh. A friend of mine had a flat downwind of the cooling tower and it was constantly raining there. :)

Thanks all - no I'm not a troll (if you were wondering aban). And good luck with your gender reassignment - if that is the current PC terminology!

No I definitely wasn't, but before you arrived, we've got a few annoying ones, and I'm glad the flow stopped :)

And thanks :)

I never wore anything under my kilt and it is no myth I can assure you.
