Glasgow, where else?

I am just about to go off-line for a week. In the meantime let me leave you with a few example of Glasgow’s way with words.

Doing a funeral visit recently I was assured by the grieving widow that “There were plenty of antidotes folk could tell about Jimmy.”

In our area funerals are often held up for post mortems, which in Scotland are authorised by the Procurator Fiscal. A friend has been assured that the family were waiting for “the Percolator Fiscal” and another for, and perhaps more accurately, the “Persecutor Fiscal.”

See you in a week.

About Campbell

Now retired but once upon a time a parish minister in Glasgow, before that the South West and initially the Black Isle. Been a prison chaplain and lecturer. Still am constantly bemused by the weird world around me.
