Ten years ago today, I had a car to sell
A VW beetle, that was great, but not doing well
Long distance commutes were not it’s forté
So I sought a buyer (this was before ebay)
Who’d love it, care for, it and take it away

A friend of friend was looking for just such a car
She lived in Oxford, which wasn’t too far.
Her name was Leigh and she came from Lenzie
The first sight of her sent me into a frenzy!

She impressed me with her Jaffa Cake tricks
I wondered then if she could be a Hicks?
The deal was struck and the beetle was sold
But was this the end? Fear took hold

I couldn’t wait to see her once more
I called her and explained it was her I adore
That was the event that changed my life
Before a year was out, Leigh became my wife.


(apologies for the cheese)

    The Clientele with @corinpilling at the Scala last night were mesmerising! It also made me realise how great a guitarist Alasdair MacLean is!

    You paint a great mural, and some idiot adds their ugly tag to the little of space you left to balance the composition.
