Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Doctor Who in Dennistoun

Might be worth a trip to Duke Street (Dennistoun) if you are a ‘New’ Doctor Who fan (I’m not, the pre-publicity for the 2017 series was the last straw for me for various reasons, and this travesty of the classic series is now firmly off my list), and a collector of goodies.

While they’re not exactly giving the stuff away, it is on offer at charity shop prices, so there’s are bargains to be had for anyone serious.

I couldn’t get a decent pic, sorry, but the reflection of the footpath on the glass was pretty strong, even when I processed a lot of it away.

Raid the piggy-bank, and go…

Living life in the fast lane

Although there are quite a few charity and hospice shops around, and I do look in the windows, there’s seldom anything of real interest to be seen.

As a latent hoarder whose largely managed to avoid the affliction taking hold, I’ve probably got a house already containing anything that’s on offer.

But I did spot one little gem recently, and ran in to snap him up.

It hadn’t occurred to me at the time I took the pic, but I later realised that the elasticated ‘things’ around his ankles were actually his skateboarding kneepads (the ‘pads’ are actually hidden from sight, around the back of his legs – that was the way he came), and later views show him more properly attired.
