#LISSEN. GUARANTEED REMEDY TO AVOID SHIT CREEK!

20 May

MY GOOD FRIEND PADDY EMPLOYS A SURE FAST WAY TO AVOID PADDLING UP ANY OF LIFE’S SHIT CREEKS. PADDY’S ADVICE IS TO STOP WHATEVER DAFT NONSENSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO WANDER INTO, DROP EVERYTHING, PUT ON A SILLY SCOTTISH HAT AND HAVE A NICE CUP OF TEA INSTEAD. MY FRIEND PADDY IS IRISH AND CAN TELL YOU ALL ABOUT AVOIDING SHIT CREEK. HE HAS HAD MUCH EXPERIENCE AVOIDING THINGS IN HIS INTERESTING LIFE. A GOOD CUP OF TEA SHOULD DO THE TRICK.

Life’s Shit Creeks and other tales can be found by following this link while drinking tea. You might thank me one day;

#LISSEN. Anniversary time for Andy.

12 May

Today is my anniversary of turning up (late!) to join the ranks of The Kings Own Scottish Borderers at the depot in Berwick on Tweed to serve my National Service for Queen and Country. The year was 1955. Geez that’s 62 years ago, I’d better sit down. This pic shows me as a smart wee soldier at the end of basic training. I am the good looking one seated, second left. Travel, variety, excitement and growing up with a bunch of new friends was in store for Wee Andy. Och, I’m away down Memory Lane again.

Dave,Hutch,Andy and Jock.

One way to avoid paddling up any of life’s Shit Creeks would be to hang with a bunch of old friends, preferably musicians. You can see that this bunch of old guys look a wee bit rough at the edges but don’t be misled. Dave, Hutch, Andy and Jock have all been round the musical block more than a few times. Each one of us broke into the music scene way back in the late fifties/early sixties and have lots of tales to tell about avoiding shit creek situations. You can read some of my stories at the link below;
