Whether it was a long time ago, a short time ago, you're still there, you miss it, etc. Please tell the boards whereabouts in Glasgow you came from originally and maybe even a wee bit about the place.

Born 1931 s/side, moved to househillwood pollok to the country side, small housing scheme then,, hardly any shops, one little wooden school, for all greeds,such fun bluebell woods & ancient crookston castle to explore, belonged to mary queen of scots husbands family Lennox, we thought the caretaker was mary queen of scots granny!she wiped our skint knees,,there was black hills, a brick work, very dangerous, we played & stole the coal if possible,also the red hills& darnley, & near barrhead a great dam to swim & glenifer braes, we'd climb & rolled down, these were all" away for the day" adventures, mum made pieces & bottles of water.. we walked far past farms, 4 farms in our area, the farmers sold my family fresh eggs, butter, the wife came selling homemade scones, pancakes& buttermilk ,also hay for hen huts, war declared, we start to keep hens,for food & eggs. Going towards city there was 2 golf courses, must have been for the wealthy!! Then we were evacuated to castle douglas to a farm so my whole family went to safety, back home again we go through , war & live in our anderson air raid shelter most of the time, terrible!! then the housing scheme grows& we get archie millar& gibbson Ol'coot & many other wonderful neighbours, wed 1955 live Oatlands, back to H/Hwood,1964, then Santa Monica CA,1976 still there cool.gif

)Born in Shawlands lived there till I got married. Loved Ice Skating in winter at Crossmyloof Ice Rink and dancing in summer when they lifted the ice. On Sundays after church used to go to Leons Cafe for a double Nougat and meet with friends. Can still hear Tram Cars rattling along by Shawlands Cross . Left Scotland and lived in England for seven years before coming to Brisbane Australia where I have lived now for 36 years but the call of your roots is always at the back of your mind and boards like this one rekindle happy memories.
