Scottish Blessings

Dear Sandy Stevenson, I went into your web site which gave a large number of Scottish blessings. The one I was looking for however, only had the first line printed unlike the others which were printed in their entirety. It is "Lang may yer lum reek" Can you help me with the other lines or give me a reference as to where I might find it.

Well, the answer is that there are no other lines. "Lang may yer lum reek" means long may we see chimney smoke from your wee cottage, and is used in Scotland to wish a person a long life. I use that phrase all the time in Scotland.
