G'day mate.When I was pre-viewing yir return post.It kept saying (ERROR) to many Emeticon's.So I kept tryin tae delete them..I don't know why cos I only put two in it.So am going tae use ma ain smillies.I nearly had a nervous breakdoon when I saw all the posts..You know the Daily Record Message board has never been the same since it went Electronic.But thats another subject.
Trebor at the bottom of the hill.I left Auchinairn 63.Must have been later.My mother passed away Nov 2006.Died in Stobhill aged 98.Her mind was perfect.She was jist frail.She was in OZ in 74 for a holiday.When she died one of the Brothers looked in her purse and in it was a one Dollar note that she had taken back with her.The one dollar note is now in a frame in oor Computer room.I was pleased she died as she was heading for the dreaded nursing hame.She had been in Wallacewell Quad Residential hame for about a year.She looked after hersel with a carer coming no and again.That carer I used to know as a young neighbour.A week before she died she shouted through the phone Ah still luvs ye darlin.So that was good.
We have oor rear neighbours Mangoe tree's right along oor fence line..WE get some Mangoe's and plenty leaves.
The fruit bats get stuck intae them and leave us the stumps.

I was conceived at a Hogmany party in 1965 at the Great Western Road high flats in Glasgow. The evening had started in Curlers Bar before Ronnie Gordon an Engineer gave out the invites. 9 months later I was adopted to a family in 1966. My birth dad found out somehow and went to my birth mums door in Drumchapel just hours after I had been given away. His name was Brian (surname unknown). He would have been about 19 back then and only about 5' 4" or 5". A fashionable dresser, and wore a smart green duffel coat. Ronald sadly died a few years ago and I'm unable to get any further information there. Another lady at the party was Joan Watson from Cloan Ave, Drumchapel. She emigrated to Canada and became a nurse. My birth mum has no more information to give. I believe Brian may have been a friend of George Harwood a Painter & Decorator from Pendeen Crescent, Barlanark. He sadly has passed away also. Does this ring a bell with anyone? My real dad knew about me and could never do anything to find me. 47 years on can you help me find him please? If you can share information I would be very grateful. Many thanks.
