Subject: RE: BS: Things Mom used to say
She could be a bit unkind about anyone with a physical defect. Anyone with one leg or in a wheelchair was a cripple, anyone with bandy legs "couldn't stop a pig in an entry" and anyone with not quite straight eyes had "one eye on t'pot and t'other up chimney." Me ould gran didn't like swearing in front of us kids so "bloody 'ell" became "blood and stomach pills."
