True Love

According to the great Scottish folk singer Jean Redpath, Scots are rather hesitant in open declarations of love.  This stiff reserve in matters of the heart is well illustrated by the story of one happily married couple who had reached the occasion of their silver wedding.  John certainly remembered this special event called for special measures and he had brought home an attractive piece of jewellery for his wife as a memento.

He fumbled about with it in his pocket for some time, but at last laid it on the table and pushed it in an off-hand way towards his wife.  Opening the box, his wife expressed her delight at the gift and, her eyes filling with tears, exclaimed:

"O John, it's rale bonnie.  An daes this mean that ye lou me as mukkil as evir?"

John looked a trifle watery in the eye too, but could only allow himself as reply "Ay!  Seemingly."
