PostA Scottish New Year's Toast (John Heelan, UK, 01/02/18 7:17 am)
Gary Moore's reminder (1 January) brought back to me the wry toast of my old Scottish golfing partner (and professional soccer referee).
When we we won a competition, my mate Jim--a teetotaller--would toast to our success with the old Scottish words, "Here's tae us/ Wha's like us?/ Damn few/ and they'r all deed!"
Sadly, so is Jim.
JE comments: Rest well, Jim. How, one wonders, did the Scots ever think up their vowel pronunciation? Kilts that are too tight?
There's nothing like a wry toast. Beats a white or whole-wheat toast every time. (!)
Painful punning aside, a very happy New Year to the most prolific WAISer, our dear friend John Heelan.
