A Leslie ch˛ir, ( agus a h-uile duine ),

Tapadh leat, ach chan eil e a' dearbhadh gur se˛lta duine iomadh iarruinn a bhith air a
theine.....!
Thank you, but isn't it proving that-is skillful ( a ) person many (an) iron to be in 
his
fire....!
Thank you, but having many irons in the fire doesn't prove that a person is

Chan atharrachainn dad ach "smaoineachainn". Tha e cho soilleir 's a ghabhas. Agus tha 
mi a'
comh-c˛rdadh riut a' bharrachd!

Not would-change-I thing but "...". Is it so clear and as will-take. And am I agreeing 
with-you
also (?) !

I wouldn't change a thing except "...". It's as clear as can be. And beyond that, I 
agree with
you!

Ciamar a tha c¨isean aig a h-uile duine? Tha na h-oidhchean a' fÓs fionnar ann an CB, 
agus
bithidh ce˛ air a' bhaigh seo iomadh madainn. 'Sann a' beantail do 'n uisge a tha e 
agus anns
na gleanntan, agus chi thu na beanntan os a chionn. Tha e uamhasach breagha 'nuair a 
dheÓrrsas
a' ghrian agus i ag Úirigh, air a h-uile rud.

How are matters at everybody? Are the nights growing cool in CB, and will-be fog on 
the bay
here many (a) morning. Is it touching to the water that is he and in the valleys, and 
will-see
you the mountains above him. Is it terribly beautiful when that will-shine the sun and 
it
rising, on everything.

How are things with everybody? The nights are getting cool here in CB and there's 
often fog on
the bay here in the mornings. It touches the water and is in the valleys, and you can 
see the
mountains above it. It's incredibly beautiful when the rising sun shines on it all.

Le meas,
Aonghas
