Collated from various sources including Helen Beatons 1925 At the Back o Benachie and Professor Alexander Fentons academic collection of the sayings of Aberdeenshire parishes in the 1950s, Doric Sayings is a cornucopia of Doric wit an wisdom, some of it in the form of rhyme and riddle. Couthie comments about everyday life; caustic remarks about the neighbours; philosophical reflections on work or the weather. Who could fail to be re-assured to know that aathing his an eyn but a mealie pudden his twa?
