Lady Muck

Apparently I'm not keeping hubby in the style to which he thinks he should be accustomed.

He wants to be Lord Leslie,right on his licence, banking card, medicare and credit card .

Lord Leslie, God help us .

I found Highland Titles,there he can purchase his own Highland Estate that will entitle him to be Lord or Laird of his very own Scottish estate from just £29.99, now I don't know what this is in Australian dollars but it seems like a small price to pay for the respect/giggles he will gain.


not Les

It will buy him 1 square foot of land which he can actually stand on and have his photo taken should he wish to pay a visit as Lord of Glencoe. He could spend 100 pounds and get a 100 square feet and then he could pitch a tent there for a few days. A few days in a tent in the Scottish highlands? That sounds cold and quite probably wet.

If he pays double, we can have adjoining estates. I can just see us in our adjoining square foot plots, my arse would probably encroach on Lord Les's land and he'd make me pay a tresspass fine.


I thought hard about my Scottish knowlege, seeing as I have a Scottish great grandfather... Alexander Naylor
Birth1865, Lanarkshire, , Scotland .parents: J
ohn Naylor and Norah Buchanan

This my Scottish knowledge :

Its mountainy...highlands..I get it.
Its cold and rainy.
They have a fantabulous accent.
Whisky!!!
Haggis, which I'm pretty sure I would not like.
Bagpipes and kilts and tartan..well they're in the picture.
Castles, those I like,though they look a bit hard to keep warm,I think I'd have to have a butler..wait a buttle buttles, I would need a chamber maid. Well if I had a castle and more than one metre.
What else?..hmm Loch Ness Monser and all the other monster less Lochs.
Sean Connery and Billy Connolly.
Whisky!!!
shortbread
The Proclaimers
Rod Stewart
the Bay City Rollers
Whisky!
