Methlick's ir first interview - Alice Cheyne of West Monlettie, formerly of Wells of Newton recalls her family, the Chapmans, and a great variety of memories including school, storms, wartime, games, holidays and farming. Can't wait to get stuck into it!

The Methlick Grace


O Lord, we sikk a blessin noo,

On ilka ashet stappit foo,

On dreepin roasts for ilka mou'

Or troots fae oot the Ythan


An faan it's hame we're bound the nicht,

Tae Fyvie, Ellon, Maud or Gight,

Lord, grant us a meen that's shinin bricht

Lest we faa intae the Ythan


The above was mentioned by a David Ogston from Scone who wrote to the Glasgow Herald (9/2/08).  It could equally be called the Formartine Grace!!
