20th & 21st May

Saturday 20 1977
FA Cup Final Liverpool v Manchester United
Liverpool lost 1-2 (poo!)
Bev finished with Dave
He owes me £6.50
Worked from 9.30 - 6.00
Really busy - it was a scorching day

Sunday 21 1977
Sunbathed in garden
Went to Tiffanys
Spoke to Dave he paid me back my money
He is depressed about Bev & he has smashed up his Dads E-Type

(yes it was pink! and the one shown above is a 1974 one up for sale at £49,995!! My word would he have been in trouble back then?)

From the diary entries above in 1977 it would seem we were having a heat wave in May.
Today I had to go to Glasgow on business and the weather was glorious. I have been many times to the city and must say today was the most sunniest I have seen it .
I took my camera with me as I always do .. there are a few piccies taken from the train window travelling at high speed over at Twitpics. ( Thank you DP and John C for mentioning naked ladies in the comments it has sent the hits spiralling lol)

I didn't spot this building, my colleague did (I was trying to cross the road without being run over at the time) .. but what a superb building it is!

Built in 1938 as a hotel it is now apartments the architecture is awesome
It has been a long old day (up at 5 am) but it made a lovely change to travel North instead of South

oops almost forgot if you need a Kilt then thi
s is the place to go

Back in 1972, I was living with my Aunt in Walton-0n-Thames. Me and my cousin were walking in town one night when his mate pulled up in his Jag E-Type and gave us a lift.

That thing was seriously fast! I always wanted one but could never afford it.

Just orf to look at Twitpics.

As the year's go by, my legs get worserer and worserer - so, yes please, a floor length kilt would ease the pain of the world ... anything that isn't in tartan please ... tee hee

GW ~ YEAH I can comment on my blog tonight .... can't comment on yours but will try again later. I am using Google Chrome to see if it better than Firefox and so far so good!!!

E- Types are pretty cool ... I doubt I will ever be able to afford one either ...
