... clothes today as day was balmy and still warm. Rang member in London where I am to be guest speaker next month and we had a blether (chat). Will meet up before meeting and have a bite to eat day I'm to be guest speaker. When I made reservation with my voucher for day tour in London for Monday next week Stonehenge/Windsor Castle & Oxford, was asked which hotel I was staying at and tour bus will collect me from that hotel.

We watched the dancing for about an hour or so, had some haggis, and left for Glasgow.
Strange thing happened walking along a street in west end Glasgow. I saw a coin on the ground and it made me think how lucky I have been over the years when it has come to finding money on the street. I have picked up $50 on two occasions and numerous gold coins regularly. I swear to god within 45 minutes of me having this thought, I saw a note lying in the gutter. I picked it up - £20!! Spooky, eh?
... pace to peace. Everything to hand and architecture of varying degrees and brilliance of ages everywhere to see.
Anyway it was a success and great to travel by ferry and train and not drive and find parking and just think, when we turn 60 years old it'll be for a fiver!! ...
