The loveliness of dirt

on February 18, 2014

The other evening, I was watching the ducklings and peachicks go to bed in their different ways and, because I keep forgetting to take a chair or stool to sit on next to the yards, I just sat down on the ground.

The clothes I had on were my ‘city’ clothes – I looked in my files for photos that would go with this post but couldn’t find any that were dirty enough!

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend your time. Clothes. Shmlothes!

    If you were here you would not sit in the dirt as the ground is wet and soggy. A good Scottish word for dirty is ‘mocket’. As in the expression:

    ‘Julie sat in the dirt and when she got she was fair mocket’.

    For some reason uncultured Glasgow people add the word ‘fair’ to sentences as in ‘fair mocket’, ‘fair wet’ outside etc. They also like adding the word ‘but’ at the end of a sentence as in ‘I’m not going, but’.

  7. That’s too funny, hee, hee 🙂

  8. Sitting in dirt is not something I have done in many years

    Julie, are you looking for someone to roll around in the dirt with ya, I would volunteer, if I weren’t so dang far away. Take care, Bill

    I used to like sitting on the ground a lot more than I do now that it’s harder to get up…but I used to sit on the grass in the park with the birds around me, it felt natural to be on their level instead of towering over them.
