You'll Have Had Your Summer Holidays Then!

Well that's the summer holidays over for another year. I would love to say that I am back at my desk today, tanned and thoroughly rested but if I did then I would be a liar. I am slightly less pale blue than I was before my trip to the West Coast but the weather was hardly conducive to turning me into a bronze Adonis. Still we made the most of it and the boys had a great time.

In other news, I picked the scooter up on Saturday on my way home from Machrihanish. It is now making a lovely noise thanks to the addition of a Gianelli sports exhaust expertly fitted by John at Glasgow Lambretta, just under 400 miles to go until it can be opened up properly.

Oh,  and to the two fuckwits that decided it would be fun to kick in my back lights on my car left in the drive when we were away. One day, you will realise just how much inconvenience, frustration not to mention anger you caused when someone does something similar to you. Until that day I wish on you both a particularly itchy dose of the crabs or a really fiery case of gonorrhoea or preferably both at the same time.

Here is a rather good version of the Sidney Barnes track 'You'll Always Be In Style' by an unknown female artist found amongst a number of studio demos.

Is RAF Macrahanish a slagheap now then?

They are worth a watching Dickie.

RAF Machrihanish is now a civilian airport with two flights a week from Glasgow. All the shelters etc are now used for wind turbine production and other local firms.

A few weeks ago in the Herald it said that the area was one of the most radioactive in Scotland. That begs the question what were all those transport planes using the longest airstrip in Europe, carrying.
