anyway
Cities, buildings falling down
Satellites come crashing down
I see them falling out the skies like eagles
All mirrored glass and shattered egos
But in a corner of the world we'd meet to laugh and drink and plan our sequels

Blogger Lastgirlstanding said...

Morning.. Hope all is well in Aberfoyle, Bury, Hamburg and Hamilton (and all other places where ppl are reading this).. Weather not overpromising outside, here in Rainford, but hopefully the usual 3.30 rain won't be falling as I wait for the kids coming out of school. Hi Derek, have you anything special planned for your birthday?

9:56 am  
Blogger Spearbabe said...

Is it the 22nd?

I am not working till later, it will problably be really quite with the footie on, in that case I will just use the work's phone to call all my friend's!!! :)

10:48 am  
Blogger Derek Forbes said...

Oh no. Unfortunately my birthday will be cancelled this year, and I will have to wait until next year. Oh well, and my lovely wife had the zimmer all polished up. Never mind. I'll just put on my dancing trousers and paint the town red.Or is it Blue....(Preferably).

Derek

12:45 pm  
Blogger Lastgirlstanding said...

Aye, the birthday should fall on a weekend next year. Maybe you should schedule a 4GM gig in the Trossachs?? Speaking as an Evertonian, I reckon you should definitely paint the town Blue!! (Though I know you were looking at it from a Rangers angle!!)

12:52 pm  
Blogger Spearbabe said...

Is it a big one next year then Derek?

2:19 pm  
Blogger Derek Forbes said...
