A bit of country wisdom

Robin told me this story - of an old man called Charlie Gill who lived out near Saintfield. He had a few slates missing from his house roof, but he never got them fixed. When he was asked about this by visitors he used to say something like:

"When it's rainin' it's too wet to do it, and on a dry day I don't need it done".

He had a few slates missing Isn't that a euphemism?

Fair fa' ye!
