Thanks for that Andrew. I think Maggie & Mary will be John's wife Mary and their daughter - ages are correct and the rest of the family would have been old enough to be married. Though you're right, she gave her maiden name in 1881, even though the children were Logies. (John was elsewhere on that c...

John Logie 1891 Census no image .....

John Logie age 62 shows up in the 1891 census index in Paisley, but sadly there is no image. I was hoping to find out whether he and his wife Mary were living in the same house (the index at least shows they were not).

Busy chatting away, each "helping" the other, no one really in charge of the drink-making, as you do - jist a gitter really :lol: But by the ...

Naw Sheila - it's got nothin' to do with yer wee tipple. It's a direct result of a very active mind - multi-tasking, ambi-dextering and keeping everyone else straight at the same time. Look at the positives - you did remember you had an appointment and you did remember where it was - two out of thre...

Hi Paula - glad you got home safely. I think we all enjoyed ourselves (I know I did) and your reaction to Sporran was magical! Next year? Well, I seem to remember someone offering tea at Betty's so we might do a repeat performance sooner than that. Are you there Davie ?? :lol: To all who couldn't ma...

Steamin' and bloo'ered ( :? don't know how to write a glottal stop, but it was essential) were two in common use in Stirlingshire circa 1970.
