|Dad's MGB GT 1968|
I went to see an MGB GT which a guy was selling near Aberdeen, but after seeing it close up, we were pretty quick to walk away. I'm keen to do a bit of a restoration project, and my dad's done a lot of work on his MGB GT as well since acquiring it a few years ago, but this one was frankly scrap material despite the photographs having looked a little more kindly on its condition. There's solid cars out there; we've just got to find one.
|My dad's first car: Rover P6 (2000SC) 1969|
First game I've seen in ages yesterday. Jags beat Morton 2-0 in a slightly scrappy game, but one we were never in danger of losing. Cracking goal from Erskine and a decent right-footed rebound from Boyle to wrap up the points. Youngster Jamie Campbell had a reasonably good shift at right midfield and Kris Doolan and Tommy Stewart were both unlucky not to get on the score-sheet. This will be my last game of the season as the University of Glasgow/School of Law have, in their infinite wisdom, decided to schedule the Commercial Law exam between 2pm and 4pm on a Saturday, clashing with the final home match against title contenders Raith Rovers. It's been a funny old season and with McCall out the door we could have another period of transition, but such as is life.
Part of my procrastination schedule has involved a passing interest in this year's World Snooker Championships. Nothing much to write home about yet, but Ronnie O'Sullivan's been pegged back a bit by Shaun Murphy. Sounds like Stephen Hendry's on the verge of retirement, which is a bit of a shame. Great player in his day but lost his way in recent years.
Anyway, Politics exam on Thursday morning, which I've done precious little preparation for. Better get back to work!
