In amongst all the stuff going on in the world – a certain referendum result, the resultant resignation by Mr Irresponsible (see posts here,) a constitutional coup d’état in the UK followed by the appointment of a buffoon as Foreign Secretary, an inadequate with mental problems rampaging along a packed, festive promenade in a lorry deliberately targeting families and children, a seeming military coup d’état in Turkey with characteristics that are very odd and which swiftly fell apart, not to mention the ongoing mayhem in Iraq, Syria and so on – people have to get on with things and carry on, marking the milestones in their lives.
So it was that I missed Sons opening game of the season (about which the only thing positive to be said is that we twice came back from a goal down.)
Why did I miss a game so easily travelable for me?
I was at a piss-up in a brewery.
To clarify: it was my younger son’s wedding and the happy couple decided to hold their nuptials at the West Brewery, in part of the former Templeton’s Carpet Factory, near Glasgow Green, (which I now realise I haven’t yet posted my photographs of.)
One of the advantages of holding a wedding in a brewery is …… beer. As well as the usual immediate post ceremony libation of wine the choice of beer was available, great foaming jugs of the stuff (and half-pint glasses – just as well; the beer seemed quite strong.)
Then these two jugs appeared on the table before the meal. The beers were Munich Red and St Mungo, both very palatable:-
A few minutes later another jug was added. This was a wheat beer of some sort, to the front in this shot. Less to my taste, though:-
There was a lot of dad dancing going on – and not just from the older ones like myself. But a good time was had by all.
