The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
I am glad you cleared that up and that is a lovely painting :-)
So.... is that young British diving star in with a chance of the Olymic Gold for Urinating in 2012? Bizarre... Or are you just taking the piss :)
I know you always say the truth, Jams. Nevertheless, before calling our diving friend, Nevin, urinator, I went to ckeck Vikipedia. You're right...Only you would inform us of truly bizarre facts!!!! The English language might be wonderful but it's very difficult for a French speaking Canadian. BTW, beautiful painting! Delicately refreshing...
There's nothing like the delight one feels in learning a new meaning for an old word. Great picture too.
It is a beautiful picture eh CHerie?Haha extracting the urinator Andrew!Now would I lie to you Claudia!I agree it is wonderful isn;t it,, words and pictures both!
Who knew?!!! Thanks for the English lesson.
Actually I only knew a couple of years ago when reading an Aubrey Maturin book by Patrick O Brian!
Ha! I thought she was getting the fish to nibble off the dead skin nibbled on her feet. I had that done in Singapore - it was fabulous!
THat sounds great. I fancy going to Turke to have doctor fish nibble the sjkin.. as I have psoriasis
Hmm... These ladies probably could carry the likes of you and me in one hand... casually. Nice picture, too.
