  1. That's Roxy just over 7 months now. She's still mega jumpy when another dog barks and doesn't like strangers approaching. The amount of folk I've had to warn before they try and clap her, most folk are fine with it and one guy just totally ignored me, approached her with a hood up and tried to clap her on the head, she ended up grabbing his jacket sleeve and swinging it about a bit, the boy was a bit shaken up bit I did warn him. Went down to pets at home last weekend and bought a Halti for walking her as she pulls a lot when she's on the lead, and what a difference with it, she didn't like it at first but she's kind of accepted it now. As much as I try and socialise her she just doesn't like people she doesn't know. Got a new carpet in the hall and the stairs 3 weeks ago.... A week later she ripped up the bit on the landing in the middle of the stairs. Back down to j&w and managed to get an off cut to replace the landing bit. Last week she's done the exact same again.
  2. Loveys a good c*nt, again used to be an absolute balloon like most of us and is the same age as Graeme the author. Aye get involved with it, right good story.
  3. The young team by Graeme Armstrong. I got this last Sunday, and finished it on tuesday. It was a bit more personal for me, I grew up in the same village with the same folk the author Graeme did. Hing about "the mansion", cemetery and grey lady that the author mentions frequently and had more or less an identical teenage experience as the author. It takes a few pages to get to grips with the language used in the book but once you're in, you're well in. It's a great book and tells the tale of probably 80% of teens growing up in surrounding Glasgow towns, addiction, death, fighting, drinking etc. I enjoyed it and it brought back a lot of good memories for me, as well as a lot of memories of darker times and friends now departed.

  5. You know the galling thing is..... The guy who picks the teams and half the indoor team all play at my outdoor! So it's not as if I'm an unknown quantity as such. Won everything at our club (more than once) Scottish finals, district singles titles etc, so it's not as if I'm terrible, without sounding like a twat saying that! At least you're doing well in the leagues. Truth be told I'm not actually not even missing the indoor, the pips getting a bit older and I've been walking a lot with her so it's filling an hour at night! I totally see where your wee guys coming from... I played from I was 8 to I was 16, then I just lost interest between 2002 and eventually went back in 2011, the good thing is, it's one of they sports that will always be there and there will always be a club somewhere to play out of. I will be going to the outdoor, but I probably won't be entering Scottish or county championships, going on holiday 2nd week in June so it'll prob be bang in the middle of qualifying. Shame as well, as I got to Northfield in the singles last year and I won't be in anything this year through my own choice. My old man and another 3 seniors from our club are going to Wales for the British isles this year as they've won the Scottish over 55's for the second year in a row. I won't be going though, couldn't be arsed with that!
  6. Let's revisit it right now...... Aye Brechin's going great guns and Cove are certainly struggling with that jump in quality [emoji849]
  7. How's the season faring mate? I spat my dummy at being dropped for one of the Saturday league games and hadn't been back since early January but I got a phone call last week telling me the triples semi final was on Sunday...... And we played the boy who picks the teams [emoji57][emoji57][emoji57], won out the park and I even managed a wee sly "imagine if we actually took this seriously, might even get picked for a Saturday". How did the wee man get on? I kept meaning to come on and ask you but the thought of bowls turned my stomach and I kept patching it. Only reason i played in that triples was so I didn't let the other 2 guys down!

  9. Can't really disagree with any of that. We seem fairly content to let teams have the lions share of the ball, it suits us and the defence has by and large been ok. On another note, Callum Fordyce is a bit of an unsung hero this year. He's been arguably our best and most consistent signing, very rarely looks troubled and is always fairly calm. He's been shunted about to accommodate Kerr and crighton coming back and just gets on with it, a real team player.
  10. While I agree a draw might have been a fair result, I'd disagree we "stole the points". Everyone knows I'm the eternal pessimist on here, and I'd agree we "stole" them if Gallagher had an outstanding game and EF pounded the goal. Neither of that happened, we defended pretty resolutely against a toothless attack, the keeper made 1 decent save in the first half and apart from that weren't really threatened for being as camped in our half. Creighton and Kerr will hardly have an easier afternoon than that mopping up aimless balls.
  11. A welcome 3 points but not a great game by any stretch of the imagination. First half was pretty end to end and after going in front from the penalty lost a bit of urgency, Smith having a decent effort tipped over the bar, and an EF player making space for a shot in the box well tipped round by Gallagher but apart from that, fairly even. We sat back in the second half but EF were fairly toothless and never really troubled the net, and even the free kick near the end I was expecting Agnew to at least register something but Wallace stepped up and made an arse of it. The amount of times EF tried that through ball down their right hand side and just hit it out of play for a goal kick was staggering and for the amount of second half possession they had, never really done much with it. Fairly comfortable in the end but I'm glad we don't have to play them again this season as theyre one of they teams you never know what ones turning up.
  12. Just as a side not to this game, did Dillon play in the same side at the same time as goodwillie with Dundee utd?
