Subject: Celtic toes, what about Scotch balls
Date: 4 Dec 1997 19:41:58 EDT
Well, Pat, I'll bet you got everyone's attention.
But, yes, I do have that type of nose. And for 57 years I thought the
small crease separating the ball from the rest of the nose was from my
wiping my nose on my sleeve when a child. But, 2 years ago my
grandaughter asked me where the crease came from and I discovered she
has one, also.
PT>Everyone in my family from the elders to the greatgrandchildren, not all of
PT>them caucasian, have what my greatgrandparents called a Scotch ball on the
PT>end of their nose. It basically means that if you feel or look carefully at
PT>any of our noses, the ends are definitely very rounded and the ball part is
PT>a bit raised.
PT>Is this something that anyone here knows about or has.
