Oh God You Are Really Spoiling Me!
There I was sitting eating my lunch when I heard a faint banging in the distance. Quick as a fox I grabbed my camera and raced to the window and there they were- the Orange folks!. Yes, folks it's marching season again. I imagine this is very similar to being in Rio at carnival time only without all the tiresome tourists getting in the way. And less thongs.
To think it was only yesterday Davo at Bawbags was wondering where on earth the City Council got the idea for the Glasgow-Scotland With Style slogan from and lo the answer comes marching up the High Street. Orange is a difficult colour to carry off and the picture above shows Her Majesty's fan club carrying off this tricky style move with ease. Marvel at the ladies at the back with their stylish blue carrier bags. Observe the Orangeman just ahead of them in the third picture with the two tone hair. Unconvinced then might I draw your attention to the lady at the front in the second photo resplendent in an all white outfit. A magnificent sight I'm sure you'll agree.
Those of you who've not had the pleasure of witnessing one of these wonderful parades may find this hard to believe but the best is yet to come. By July they're in some sort of frenzy and thousands of them take to the streets. You can't even begin to imagine some of the sights on display and if you all behave between now and then I might put up a few snaps for you all to marvel at.
