A Scots boy came home from school and told his
mother he had been given a part in the school play. "Wonderful,"

An old Scot, after living for many years in
a far-away land, was dying. He called his doctor and asked for one last

"Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."
"Well, uh I was thinkin.......perhaps

over and cuddled him for a few seconds. Then he blushed and the two turned
once again to gaze out over the loch.
After a while the girl spoke again.
"Another penny for your thoughts, Angus." "Well, uh I was

Bonnie." She blushed, then took his hand and put it on her knee. Then
he blushed and the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.
After a while Bonnie spoke again.
"Another penny for your thoughts, Angus." The young man knit his
brow. "Wahl, nouh," he said, "my thoughts war a bit moor

"Really?" she said in a whisper,
filled with anticipation. "Aye," said Angus. Bonnie looked away
in shyness, began to blush, and bit her lip in anticipation of the
