especially if wan had a big hammer...ooer missus...

i'd hammer in the morning
i'd hammer in the evening
all over this ......

reminds me of the BB, not bridie or belshill

i sold the soul i never knew existed and went to the Boys Brigade on a Bosman for 6 wk's.
I've never been inclined to give a fuck, who, what, colour, religion etc.
that was my parents upbringing, simple, don't lie, steal or disrespect our name

so BB, went well, enyoyed it even, my pals were there, but after a few weeks i qualified for a name, from the jungle book, made up, but hoping for shere khan, bagira, even baloo, they gave me the option of the snake or the lone wolf, didn't register then like now, but in addition, i was fast-tracked to be the flagbearer i.e. protect, fold, worship that flag before god save the queen was played.

At the time it didn't make a dent, but after rushing home and telling my (protestant) mother of the luck that had been 'entrusted on me' in being the only 'catholic flag bearer in the district' and the fact that they'd nominated me to be the snake character, she congratulated me on a job well done, told me that in the short time i'd been there, i'd reached unsurpassed heights, 'faster than anyone ever had before me'.

Funnily, she then bought me the set of golf clubs i'd desired for months and told me that the only night i could play on the local course was the same night the BB was on. My best pal informed me, that while i played golf poorly, big Maggie visited said local kids organisation to advise that the 'snake' wouldn't be back over her dead body and proceeded to call out the organisers for their intelligent, humourous but clear victimisation of her Catholic son, which if repeated would lead to her besmirching the branch and brusing far more tham their ego's.
