Tears To A Glass Eye.

Occasionally I have mentioned notable scottish expressions and one that comes to mind is 'tears to a glass eye'. Someone might tell you a remarkably exaggerated sob story and you might reply 'That one would bring tears to a glass eye'.

Todays word from the old scottish tongue is 'houghmagandie'. I am sure there will be a few here who know what it means, if not, look it up.
