From the barbers chair.

Whilst listening to the world going by as I awaited the shearing of my greying locks, I mused:

Why do young mothers in my patch call their daughters "Chelsea"?
Why not "Kelvinside" or "Auchenshuggle"?

Why does my barber show awful US shows on the widescreen TV about spoilt 16 year olds planning idiotically expensive parties instead of something dull but sensible like Wimbledon?

Why am I turning into a grumpy old coot?


  1. Think yourself lucky you don't live in Backside

  2. Just as long as you don't turn into Fr Jack.......

    As far as living in Backside is concerned, Coatbridge closed years ago!

  3. But there's always Cumbernauld!
