Francie's Scottish Humour
I was born in Whiteinch Glasgow in 1930 to my parents 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 1951 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 Gleswegian 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 gote by a' these years an' ah'm stll gaun. Naeborra.
