This Is Me, Unfortunately #1LinerWeds

Seriously, it’s gotten to where I don’t have the patience to read anymore. I know, it’s an unforgivable sin for someone who writes as much as I do not to read, but there you go.

I’m Scottish, with a very Scottish maiden name. When my dad was younger, he was very much into genealogy. He learned that some of our ancestors came from Ireland, yet Grandpa Baird was very adamant that we are Scottish. So my dad very boldly asked him one day – ‘Grandpa, why do you insist that we are Scottish if some of our ancestors came from Ireland?’ and Grandpa Baird simply replied with

‘Just because a cat has her kittens in the oven, it doesn’t mean they are biscuits.’

They also did commercials for Maxwell House, Sanka, and probably a few other General Foods products. This was back in the days when the stars of TV shows did commercials for their sponsors’ products.
