Francies Scottish Humour I was born in Whiteinch Glasgow in 1930 to the parents of Charlie and Mary Mc Caig. I served an apprenticeship in Fawkes and Sorbies, also a Whiteinch company. During this time I met my wife to be, Margaret Tedford, also born in Whiteinch. In the year of 1961 I was conscripted to the RAF, and was sent overseas to Egypt, in 1O9 M.U. RAF Abyad. Came home to my old job then moved to Rolls Royce, in Hillington. From here I was transfered to Rolls Royce in Hamilton. As life moved on I emigrated to USA, in 1965. This did not work out too well, as I became very ill shortly after. Returning home, I got a job with RR in East Kilbride where I lived for 3 years. In 1968 I decided to try USA again, this time with my wife and 3 children. As you can see I have been here for 3O years and never looked back. We have been home on holiday several times and we enjoy roaming around the country of our birth. As a matter of fact we have seen more of Scotland, than we had ever seen when we lived there; I still huv ma Glesswegian accent an' ah wull never gie it up. I find that people over here are fascinated by it. They cannie unnerstaun haulf o' whit ah'm talkin' aboot. Well ah've goat bye a' these years an' ah'm stll gaun. Naeborra Drop me a line an' I'll get back tae yese when ever ah' can.

Update: I am a true Glesswegian, full o' fun, an' a wee bit o' a poet.My home page wil verify this, and I have recieved hundreds of letters from all over the world, congratulating me on my page which contains good old Glasgow patter,and is mainly written in the Glasgow dialect. I have also written, several poems of my own, appertaining to Glasgow, and my youth. Check it out, and enjoy yoursel's

It contains good clean fun for all ages, absolutely no porn..Plenty of Glesswegian jokes, and a lot of nostalgia, from when Iwas a small boy. Please brows thro'. Thank you sincerely, Frank Mc Caig, "Francie".
