If a dog commits a nuisance on a neighbour?s land the dog?s ordure must be removed as far as its juice is found. The ground must be pressed and stamped upon by the heel, and fine clay put here to cover it. Compensation shall be paid in butter, dough or curds amounting to three times the size of the ordure.

Three days is the stay of your cattle in the pound for a quarrel in the ale house, injury of the chief, over working a valuable horse, maiming they chained dog, disturbing a fair or a great assembly, or striking or violating thy wife,

Five days for satirizing a man after his death.

If a youth incites a pig by shouting at it for sport, and the pig charges at idlers in the farmyard, the pig is exempt from liability for injuries.

The fine for peering into you neighbour?s house without permission is one cow.

For taking a handful of straw off his thatched rook, one calf is the penalty.

If a rational adult brings a simpleton into an ale house just to amuse the patrons, and if the noise and excitement cause the simpleton to injure another patron, the adult who brought him there must make compensation.

If you see a horse straying near a river in the dark, or a pit, and do nothing to save it, you must make restitution.

When you become old your family must provide you with one oatcake a day, plus a container of sour milk. They must bathe you every twentieth night and wash your head every Saturday. Seventeen sticks of firewood is the allotment for keeping you warm.

Where's my bath, oatcake, stack of wood and my sour milk?

Ahh Maggie, what is wrong with the Good Ol'e Days?

The simple life for me, No baths between October and March, No Phones, No Cars, No Computers, Just you and the Land. Those are the days that I remember and love so much and Yes, I use to live that way. wink.gif
