'And finally, not everyone’s being doing topical. In fact, here’s the rather lovely 6 Oxgangs Avenue devoted to the history of the development of the area, this week highlighting how the block of flats came into being. Could have been prompted by Who do you think you are? Or just a timely reminder that not everything worth blogging about is in the here and now.'

'The Wee Blue Devil' and The Sunday Express

Grandfather, Willie Robertson, Stobo 1972 (Photograph, Heather Robertson)

My grandfather was originally from Glasgow and supported Glasgow Rangers FC. He was a great story-teller-goodness knows what he'd say about their present plight! 

Alan Morton aka 'The Wee Blue Devil'.

Along with The Sunday Post he also bought The Sunday Express. He must have encouraged me to write to the sports editor of The Sunday Express who took time out of his busy schedule to write back to me with this rather charming letter. I endorse the philosophy too.
