Re: Building near to Ardrossan Castle

GeorgeJohnstone's Daughter was my Grandmother Jessie Johnstone. He was therefore my Great grandfather. One of George Johnstone's employees was Robert Cook (my other Great Grandfather) whose son George Cook married Jessie Johnsone. Robert was the one who found the sarcophagus in the old church. Sorry...

Re: The ... What are you doing or thinking right now - Topic

Went to the movies the other night and watched "once upon a time in Hollywood "by Tarantino (very good)
One of the previews of upcoming movies was called "Ad Astra " Which is of course the motto of Ardrossan Academy. It is on their school badge and means "To the Stars"

Beautiful rendition Hughie. This tune was the background music to the Ken Burns TV epic "The Civil War."

Re: Words we used

When I was a wee boy I wore glasses which were quite thick.
As a result I was called skelly, a derogatory term for poor eyesight or cross-eyed
