Bill McCrindle here I enjoyed viewing this contribution from man years ago. I now in my retirement spend more time practising new songs

I sing at the volunteer Arms in Dalry , Melbourne Cafe in Saltcoats and the Ywa Dugs in Ayr.

I fondly remover Majorie Mailer and her husband Peter Robertson.

They were very close friends of my late sister in law Elsie Brodie and her husband Benet.

Regards

Bill McCrindle

Apologies for the spelling errors my very large tradesman hands and fingers sometimes hit three keyboard buttons at a time.

You can take the boy out of the shipyard but not the reverse.

Kind regards

Hi Billy, A warm welcome to threetowners. I think I had left for Australia before your business took off. I recall the family when you lived in Stanley Road beside my McNamara and Keyes pals. Your sister, Mary was in my class at Eglinton as was her cousin from the Dalry Road end. Again, welcome!

You can always edit your post if you want - just click on the pencil above the post. :wink:

Hi Billy,

McCallum is the surname. We lived in Whitlees Crescent, our house looked down McDowall Avenue. Yes I did hear that Mary had passed away, she was a lovely girl. My elder siblings were Jim, Susan and Bobby, all now gone. James McNamara and Donald Keyes a couple of houses along from you were my teenage pals. I remembered where you lived as your mum took in my trousers - made them into drainpipes as was the fashion back then.
