  • Translation

    I received a message from a friend in Scotland. Will someone please translate it for me?
    (I hope this message is not X-rated! - I really have no clue what it means.)

    "Lang Mae Your Lum Reek Wae Ither Folks Coal"

    lum = chimney
    reek = to smoke

      Long may your chimney smoke with other people's coal, which you can translate as "may you always have a warm home, preferably at no great expense to yourself!"

        Thanks

        Thank you for providing translation - I understand that this is a Scottish toast. It's a good one.
