You too, HGF. Feel nice and warm now! May 2008 be a great year for you and yours.
Absolutely!Hey - Guess what, Hubby brought me back a jumper from the shop RIGHT IN the middle of that distance shot... Guess what the shop was called..The Wellie Boot Stop!they're all wellied on life too.
HGF - have a good new year, and much happy blogging in the year to come.
Hi Lins and ER, thanks, and blessing for you and yours!! :)Hi DWNB,thanks for stopping by...funny about the shop! Happy New Year!
Hi - I finally made it here to check the official meaning. I looked it up in Google and it said, "Live long and prosper" … so I wondered who was related to Spock, the Vulcan from Star Trek. I see their definition was close, but missed the mark a bit. May 2008 bring peace, joy and wonder!Hugs and blessings,
ooh, i like that. i hadn't heard that expression.though i did just wish a good friend Happy Hogmanay on dec. 31...
Hi Laurie, welcome!yes, when I first heard that, I hadn't been much up on my Scots so my (Scottish)friend translated.
..... wi other folks coal!!!Happy New Year to you!! xx
Mis mejores deseos para tí en este nuevo año. Feliz 2008!!!. Abrígate que creo que hace frío por ahí. Besos.
and to you too.
When I read the comment from dogwithnobrain I remembered that there's a shop in Tyndrum, Scotland called the Green Welly Stop and really is a great place to stop. Nothing to do with me but you might just want to visit... ... ... http://www.thegreenwellystop.co.uk/All these "Lang May Yer Lum Reek" New Year Greetings are so 'warming' and I just want to say that a lot of us Scots don't have lums anymore, but we still treasure the saying. xx
RE: "Lang may yer lum reek!"Oh thank goodness! I thought it was a Scottish saying that mean't: "Long may your bum reek!"
Ah, good to clear that up then! Wishes like that would be rather counterproductive to long friendships and invitations to tea. ;)
