    Re: Monday

    We had "Songs abaht London" not long before we were cast adrift.

    I remember being confused, (again), coz the blurb initially asked for "Songs abaht the Capital City" which I assumed meant Edinburgh.

    Oor Julie assured me that they couldnae' fill a thimble wi' songs aboot Edinburgh, nivvir mind a twa -'oor show!
