Glasgow

Visiting Glasgow is always a lot of laughs.  The Glaswegian sense of humour is renowned.  We visited the People’s Palace where we saw Billy Connelly’s original Banana Welly Boots he used in his routines as well viewing some great old comedy favourites such as Francy and Josey, Stanley Baxter and Rab C Nesbit, all famous Scottish comedians.

We visited my cousin’s allotment down by the river Clyde.  The ingenuous uses that were made of old pallets, baths, showers, sinks and fridges was amazing and I returned with fresh home grown vegetables which was a bonus too.

The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum was magnificent with splendor, Glasgow really has transformed from the old industrial city to one of much more culture but never forgetting its sense of humour which was epitomized to me in the blue door plaque on one of the city centre buildings.
