Guid tae see that Aiberbrothock's no totally shut doon.
A wheen o fowk can claim tae hae been born in the shedda or ablow the Roond O - me, ahm one o them, and ther's no mony, fut can claim tae hae been born ABUNE the Roond O.
So the Tankies in a bad wey? I mind in the late 50's when ah was at the High that we fund weys o gettin in tae the Toorie and sclimmin tae the ruif an', aye, the vizzies frae up ther wiz stunnin.
Hid a wee lauch tae mahsel when Ah read abuit the problem o gettin guid fruit and veg. Yestreen, here faur Ah bide noo in a wee mountain veelage o aroon 200 fowk, the fruit man wiz in the plaza. We bocht a honeydew melon, mair than twa pun o'grapes, mair than twa pun o' sma but awfy sweet oranges, aboot twa pun o pears, and about a pun o peaches. A' richt fer eatin, sweet n' deelicious an' a fer 6...aboot fower pund...an' the sun was awfy warm tae. An oh, bye the bye, this wee veelage hiz its ain Toon Hoose an' its ain Provost and cooncil,an hings get duin. Noo foo shuid Ah be thinkin that maist o' Aiberbrothock's tribbles n' bather, an' fehr doos ther wiz aye plenty, stems frae haein oor ain cooncil, baillies and Provost taen frae wiz?
Nah, ye cannae whack democracy in yer ain locale and gin ye can leaven it wi a guid shak o anarchy then things'll mebbe start tae look up for the toon.

Many year ago at the Angus show in Viccy park the coos were being judged. One heifer decided to go for a gallop around the ring. The farm hand holding on to it had those huge tackety bits with soles like bannanas. As the heifer got faster and fast the pair mannie was taking bigger and bigger steps till it wiz like he had seven league bits on. The crowd was laffin and he hollered out.. "Aye its funny to you lot but you dinnae hae tae hing in tillit"

Here you go Keith.....

Oh what a sleekit horrible beastie
Lurks in your belly after the feastie
Just as ye sit doon among yer kin
There starts to stir an enormous wind

The neeps and tatties and mushy peas
stert working like a gentle breeze
but soon the puddin wi the sauncie face
will have ye blawin all over the place

Nae matter whit the hell ye dae
a'bodys gonna have tae pay
even if ye try to stifle
It's like a bullet oot a rifle

Hawd yer bum tight tae the chair
tae try and stop the leakin air
shifty yersel fae cheek tae cheek
Prae to god it disnae reek

But aw yer efforts go asunder
oot it comes like a clap a thunder
Richochets aroon the room
michty me a sonic boom

God almighty it fairly reeks
Hope I huvnae s**t ma breeks
Tae the bog I better scurry
aw whit hell it's no ma worry

A'body roon aboot me chokin
wan or two are nearly bokin
I'll feel better for a while
cannae help but raise a smile

Wis him! I shout with accusin glower
alas too late, he's just keeled ower
Ye dirty bugger they shout and stare
A dinnae fell welcome any mair

Where e're ye go let yer wind gan' free
sounds just like the job fur me
whit a fuss at rabbie's perty
ower the sake o' won wee ferty
