The Scotsman fell and blushed with guilt
For showing all beneath his kilt
'Twas not for what the kilt concealed
But the holes in his underpants thus revealed.

Ok DTease, I will forgive you that little ditty, others may not !

What I didnt know was that there was so much open water in the Wigan area. Does anyone use it for water sports, sailing etc ?

Scruffy Callum counts his hoard, it took four years to save
Tonight he'll sup old Dumfries dry, then sleep in Bruce's Cave.

Helen, if you are of Scottish extraction just ignore my little mindwanderings. Everybody else does!

Why does everyone call it ScotSmans, when it's Scotmans?

Helen alone.
A far off moon.
One star.
Splinters of rain.
Paris at the oars
Splashing diamonds.

Why does everyone call Crows nest junction, when it should be crow nest!
