A remember when i was at primary school, we used to get a duffle coat aff somebody, and we would all grab an end of it and someone would put there legs over each side and we flung them up in the air singing "mary queen of scots got her head chopped of on the 19th of december" when i think back we must have been bonkers laugh.gif

laugh.gif jakka, are you sure thats all you can remember about the night in the close - im all ears here.
Ok, mine was teale blue, now this was a couple (?) of years ago, so maybe that's not what it was called in modern history rolleyes.gif We lived in Kilmarnock at the time and went into Glasgow to buy it. I thought I wanted the regular beige duffle coat but my Mum, who was always a lot more fashion conscious etc., than I, thought the blue was much better. Needless to say, she was right and when I wore it skating at Ayr Ice Rink it was quite the conversation piece and attracted a bit of attention (especially when worn with a skating skirt of that era). ohmy.gif

Enough said ,I married the lumbar .The off white coat was popular ,my best pal liked mine so much she got one as well .A lassie with good taste but no imagination ,copied everything I got laugh.gif W e must have made quite a pair .Me 5foot eight and she nearly six feet .Add on heels for me and I was pretty tall .The two of us dressed the same ..Back in my teen years in Glasgow most girls my age were around five two or three so I always stuck out like a sore thumb .
That poor lassie was found dead in a back close from an overdose .Sad .
