Why did a picture of Andy Stewart keep popping up?

I am fond of needlework but so far as I'm aware, the word 'sweet' has never, ever been in contact with my name!

Mornin, McWharfy - tried you earlier on the blower but you must've been at the boozer. Catch you later today. Heading off to Nod now.

You know, I did wonder how you were going to encounter Lez on a trip to China; then I twigged.

Well no-cheese should be safe but I often wonder how Cheeze fares at these do's with everbody on the grating.

Where is up here Wharf? Scotland's not all the wee you know. Twee perhaps in places and much tweed

There's only one place to be on Friday 20th July - Stirling!

Everyone is welcome to meet up for lunch in Henderson's Bistro at 12.30pm.

Confirmed so far - nocheese, Lez, china cat.

Hope to see some old friends, and with a bit of luck a few new faces.

....any ales lurking at Henderson's?

Hi Wharfy - they mention 'a good range of beers' on their website, but I suspect it's not what you'd call a real ale watering hole. China cat may know differently, he's been there before. Were you thinking of joining us?

Lez Lee says:
Wharfy, I probably shouldn't tell you this but there's an excellent record shop in Stirling


I've not been for a long time but there's no reason to think it's deteriorated. Very knowledgable and helpful owner.
Long way to come for lunch though!

If he starts pedalling now, he should make it up there in time:-)

The menu is something else........
'Mrs Henderson's Glory. From the imagination of Mrs Henderson comes a glass filled with vanilla ice cream, toffee sauce, cookie, and sticky toffee pudding finished with whipped double cream truly awesome'
......tempting isn't it,and it is really a long way to go!!!..aaaagh!

Edit:can't locate the ale list!!!!!!!!

Lez Lee says:
Think there's something wrong with my tastebuds, I only like the ice cream! The only dessert I'd like is the plain scone with butter (no jam).

Wharf Rat says:
Well, nc,Lez and China I hope you all have a good time in Stirling and
less of the wet stuff........raining again down here,beginning to grow
fins and webbed feet!

I'm sure we will, Wharfy; to add to the fun Johnny Bee is joining us. No other takers so far, but there's still time.
Lez and I had a grand time at The Kronos Quartet's 'Sun Rings' last night. It was moved indoors to the Kelvingrove Museum in the expectation of rain, although ironically it was a fine evening. (It was cold though, we'd have been frozen to our seats at the original outdoor venue on the banks of the Clyde).

Wharf Rat says:
Visited the Kelvingrove on my viking pillage ale tour,large place
that one.....was it on the ground floor near the main entrance?
When I was there they had a 'learning theatre' to educated the
kids about the museum's artifacts.....too many stuffed animals
in the halls,not my bag at all!

It was in the central area, facing the large organ (hope Brasso isn't reading this!). I know what you mean about the stuffed animals, part of the museum's Victorian heritage, and the elephant is particularly poignant. But there's lots more to it - it's a museum and art gallery, and they have a good collection of Glasgow Boys art, as well as an extensive exhibition of CRM and his contemporaries. If memory serves, the Dali 'Christ of St John of the Cross' has also been moved back there from the St Mungo museum - Kelvingrove had been its home for many years.
