AUNT JESSIE, BRAMBLES, AND CAMPSIE GLEN:  I remember Autumn days when all the aunts dumped their children on their youngest sister and she would take us all out to Campsie Glen to gather blackberries for our Gran to make bramble jelly.  Old clothes, brogans and thick socks, and lots of pails was the order of the day, as our tiny aunt shepherded us onto the bus at Kirkintilloch. We tramped all over the hills until we heard Aunt Jessie's "Cooeeeee" when we gathered together to boast of full pails and fuller tummies before getting on the bus for home -- and an extra warm welcome from our Gran with her jelly kettle and horsehair sieve all ready for the fruit.
