I attended Carrick Academy where I first met Billy Davidson.
While staying in Ayr I started and for a number of years ran,
Ayr Folk Club where my friendship with Billy Connolly was
forged. While working in Turner's lemonade factory I wrote ' The
Welly Boot Song' which for a while was Billy's theme song. I've
been writing for a long time, mostly poetry in dialect or with a
Native American theme. Through the Maybole website I renewed my
Billy Davidson and since then we've been corresponding and
exchanging ideas re- poetry in general. These few here include a
couple with a 'Glasgow' theme just for interest. While growing
up in Maybole my big buddy was Peter Finnie. Alas we lost touch,
and I've been searching for him for years now and would be
grateful for any news of him.
