This would be the front piece to my opus
This happened all the time
I used to steal my sister's skates and bomb it down Graham Avenue on a wee daud o' wid...eeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaa
Aaah Clydebank youth, so inquisitive and full of adventure... lets build a tree fort, what could go wrong?
Ach, man I'm starvin'...
Aaah the Mighty Titan hard at work...
Oh yeah baby, steering a bogie down Graham Ave hill wi a wee bit of string tied to the front axle. Magic days unless you were a new mummy wi no wheels left on yir pram, that ye left outside.
Gavin, why is the side a yir face so rid??
Pretty sure we all had something from the yard in our house.
Aff tae sunny "exotic" Roseneath fur the Clydebank Fair... woooo hooooo
Mums sure were tough
See... this happened a lot in the yards... a lot. Now I'm thinking it wouldn't be allowed in South Korea or Japan. It doesn't translate I guess. Ah good times, good times.
Used to make "tomahawks" out of soup cans we bashed around a bit of wood or branch, then chase each other like madmen. Good times, good times.
Every time I think of it, it gets steeper...
Things were tougher back then...
Yes, yes, yes...we all remember the good old survival swim tests... bronze, silver and gold. I thought it was great, the only "legal" time you got to jump in water fully clothed and not get a battering from your mum.
