Wish i could have been there today.
Just got in - about half twelve which from 10am is a long day but still buzzin'.
Z & DD seemed to enjoy themselves, especially the former dancing to the Irish country band - ala twirl to the left, now backwards, now turn - pics to follow if I can get up off the floor.
We had a great time at the Scottie Rd Reunion yesterday. An eclectic mix of dance, song and comedy, and that was just The Gardens!!
A couple of pics from our set, including the famous Ged on drums.
It was nice to meet a couple of Yo members, John and Deb.
Are we not going to see a pic of JohnZ then ??
Thanks John. Lindy, i'm just deciding on which pic of John. The one where he's being twirled around by the pensioner lady or the one where he's kicking his legs out in the middle of a circle during the Irish country dance
He was a great sport though being the only bloke up amongst all those Scottie Road man eaters. He has got 2 left feet though just like me.
I have a a picture in my minds eye
I like to see if people turn out how you imagine them ... JZ will be tall and thin - he might be a typical L'pool blokey bloke - but he did mention a motorbike somewhere along the line - so maybe he and his other half are bikers ??
This could make a good forum game guessing how you think people look .. on the other hand .. better not !! - only joking
- - but everyone must have an image in their minds eye.
You're quite near in your minds eye pic Lindy. He said we were better than the Beatles but he think he'd have said that if a load of binmen were up there with metal lids. I had him down as a big brute with a desperate Dan chin with a tache to match Zappa's - how wrong could I be. Debz told me in the morning to picture Nigel Havers ha ha.
Oh dear I wonder what pic will go up?
(Street cred has well gone!!)
Lindy am just another ordinary bloke with 2 left feet .I have mates who have motorbikes,myself I am not a biker .
(Talking of lookalikes and such...Quincy reminds me of the woman on "Dog Borstal" )
This was just after the Lord Mayor was led in by a lone piper to open proceedings. I remarked to him how it must be a great year to be Lord Mayor with all what's going on. So far he's met the Queen, Lord Grosvenor, Ark Royal captain, Paul McCartney and now the 'Gardens'.
He showed great interest in the Gerard Gardens resident listings from the 1970s and the history of the area including Debz 'little Italy' boards. What you can't see is Debz hand twisting his arm up his back
Pics kindly taken and supplied by Ron Formby.
Ha ha - not a ghost of a chance that it's Slemen Gnomie.
Here's John and Debz in err - a quieter moment.
But then with the twang of a banjo chord and the note of an acordian, he's up again playing pattercake with his great aunt Peggy from Scottie....and just look at his kite, isn't he just enjoying it soooo much- tooo much in fact.
glad it went well. it looks like a good time was had by all.
interesting t-shirt there Ged.
you'll be line dancing next Zapps.
dog borstal woman...must google her...she must be tall, slim and stunning then
after googling it's a toss up between these two...
when I had longer hair I was told I looked like Paul Merton
I have only slightly more hair than you now Zapps. my vitamin deficiency has meant a course of medicated shampoo and a close to wood haircut today. doesn't bother me though as I once had most of my hair cut off for charity.
Well folks there you have it.
(Ohhhh the shame)
Well thanks a bunch Ged. Local scallies taking the pee outta me,am an easy target now!!
Quincy you gave me a good laugh. As for line dancing ..(is that the dancing Robbie Fowler,Kate Moss etc does coz I would never do that ever!!)
Glad am all a bit of a blurr on the pics (hehehe). I may get some cred back after all.
Well well well what can I say what a fine looking couple
To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.
Hope thats me & Debz you're referring to and not me and the "lil old lady" on the dance floor!!
Hey John, the pic's only blurred because you were pattacaking so fast, why, even that bloke sitting behind you is sniggaring. (the filter wouldn't let me spell it properly)
I'll take it down if you're really upset though
I don't want you getting bricked on the Dog and Gun oller
You were a great sport, i'll put those toilet ones up later.
