Quick little post of progress on the skeebie. i have found out that skeebie must be a regional word for a highland cow because people in class had no idea what I was talking about. But I have also found that common for other Scottish words. Some people have no idea what some words are. Especially words that Mr.F's grandparents generation uses. I couldn't even start to figure out how to spell some of the words that Mr.F's grandfather uses. And uses just to get a confused look on my face :p but its funny all the same :)

That is the cutest animal drawing I've seen from you so far!

It is turning out wonderful. Is it the first time you are doing a cow as I have not seen you doing anything other than a dragon or a horse before.

So I'm thinking 'skeebie' isn't a breed of cow, but a generic name: what kind of cow is this, that you have so beautifully drawn???

Chrissy said...

I just assumed skeebie was your name for it, lol ~ Nice drawing :-)

Carla said...

Now that's a neat idea for a Christmas card. Nice drawing of Skeebie. I hope you are feeling better? Still flu?

So cute....I love the fringe!

Yep, Aussie lingo has changed over the generations here too. Some of the things I would say back in my day would not be known or understood by the kids of this generation. I used to LOVE hearing my Scottish grandmother talking. I remember her always saying the word 'bairns (not sure of the spelling)' for 'kids/children'. Do they use that term in your area?
