Ladies, Form An Orderly Queue

The ever-popular “Dear Dave” segment will return next week if I can finally stop wallowing in misery and find the energy to turn off the country and western music. Meantime, here’s a treat for all you ladies out there. (And for you Dave.)

By day he’s a mild-mannered construction / engineer / surveyor-type person; a veritable Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the modern age (he built that “squinty” bridge over the Clyde in Glasgow “with ma own f#cking haunds, singal-haundedly like”) with a rock-hard jaw line and, I’m sure you’ll agree, a very impressive helmet.

But by night he’s the drummer with “the greatest pub rock ‘n roll band ever”, The Signals, pounding out his own rhythm method with a level of stamina that defies logic and all rational explanation for a man of his age.

Ladies, I give you Ronald Douglas Grant… appearing in a Scottish beef advert on a television near you soon.


(P.S. This is post no. 399 on this site so I’m going to try and put a bit of effort into the next one. If you’ve any thoughts as to what should be included in post no. 400, let me know.)

I'll bet he didn't get that tan in Scotland though - looks suspiciously continental to me.

Not everyone can wear a hard hat and look that good. And doesn't he look ambitious for Scotland? Most impressive. Now let's see him behind the drums.

" Don, that's f#ckin' nothin' - you should f#ckin' Google 'Dougie Grant' & then you'll find out more"

Good advice Doug. Anyone wishing to know why you can't have an expansion joint on a curve may wish to give it a try.

I'm still moist from his performance in July.......! He'd convert any female vegetarian over 18, I can tell you!

BTW, Neil.......where are my Signals CD's? I know there's been a postal strike, but the wait's getting ridiculous!!
