    Does that include bits which would be hairy were they not waxed / shaved / plucked?

    I ask because many patriotic female women might stand for the National Anthem on smooth legs. Or, indeed, hairy legs!























    ...or mibbe stubbly legs...

    1. Will do (:-)

      It was 'a busy show' tonight so it was a very remote possibility.

    1. Hadnt come across them. Just looked them up - interesting. How come there were just 20 folk? I would have thought McGovern would have been a draw on her own.

    2. It started at 11.45 - the rest of the shows have been re-scheduled for 10.00. So much for the 24 hour party city.

      The band were very good and included a stunt double girl singer.

    11. Glen, my thoughts entirely. My eldest got mairriet (as they say in these parts) in July. The entire 'do' was organised around the availability of Billy Anderson's ceilidh band (Kenny, of King Creosote fame's feth'r) and what a great night it wis.

    1. that sounds like a social life. I'm sure I had one somewhere, just temporarily misplaced it.

      This is what I was listening to today and trying not to sing along, arms aloft while walking home. Or maybe I did hence the lack of marks on the social calendar.

      And I quite liked Anderson McGinty Ward thing whatever on Rapal last week. Cannae find a video of it. Was called the Highwayman.

    2. Glad your on here Gaie. Just had a tip o' "Ellen and the Escapades" fae my bro in law fae Welsh Wales who saw the band at the Green Man concert. I have to agree wi his view that this crowd are really good and will be big in future. I'm on my fourth listen through in the past few hours.

      Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on...............

    5. thanks, DC, eager for some new listening, I'll have a go at that later.

      Had to head for Glasgow at 1.30 a.m. to uplift son from bus-station.

      Crowds heading for clubs, I expect Glen was one of them.

      Girls in party-frocks and bare feet, I expect Senga was one of them.

  11. did i tell you lately i've been busy but ive just had a look at tonight's playlist............i just do not believe that anyone asked for paolo nuttsinit.....the point i'm tryin to make is that the dancing at my wedding was non existent as there were only 4 guests and that was touch and go.....but i did sing at a wedding 42 years ago.....good morning starshine.............i cant remember how i came to know the words to that....there were people on the dance floor but i think they may have been staring at me with incredulity at the best.....

    i know its a bit late and been a busy wan but just mibbe squeeze in towards the end........

    'good morning starshine'................oliver (ok its half nine ..do you read this blog Ricky boy LOL)
