Friday Smiles

Morning Everyone,

Hope this finds you well and looking forward to the weekend. The forecast is for a good day Saturday but rain ++ on Sunday so I think I'll be making the proverbial hay tomorrow while the sun shines :) On to what is making me smile this week. First this photograph.
It's of our 15 year old grandson, Alun, and I love it. He hates wearing his blazer but doesn't he look smart in school uniform! Doesn't he scrub up well? :)

Next I have this wee story for you.

Donald Beag's Wedding

Donald Beag* and Aggie, who had been courting for 3 years, were sitting in the pub one day watching live curling on TV. Without taking an eye of the telly, Donald asks Aggie to marry him.

"Och Donald, can ye no be a bit more romantic?" asks Aggie, as she reluctantly accepted the proposal.

Thinking that Donald hadn't taken any notice of her comment the wedding went ahead without a hint of romance.

After the wedding, upon approaching their small cottage, Donald picked Aggie up and he gallantly carried her over the threshold.

"Oh Donald, Donald," she gushed, "I never knew ye could be so romantic!"

"Well, pet, ah thought ah wid just give ye a wee lift tae your work!"

*Beag is Gaelic for wee

Right, I'm off to 'tae ma work' too. I hope you have a lovely day whatever you're doing and that you find plenty to smile about. And just in case you need a bit of a lift do check out Annie's Friday Smile post over at A Stitch In Time - there's always plenty there to bring a smile.

Hi Elizabeth,

Wonderful photo of your grandson.
It's not often nowadays that you see a young man of his age so smartly dressed, and what a handsome young man too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
