100 days – Day 18
Painting by Mike Jeffries – Edinburgh Tram 1953
Playing less than a mile away: Hibs…….For the vermin support at Fester Road, it could be the “End of the Line”. Hobos 0 – Killie 1. Hibs in the play off zone . End of the line?
Yes, I know that the tram line goes as far as York Place, and will open at the end of May BUT originally it was to carry on down Leith Walk and end at Granton. The spur up the Bridges and on to the Royal Infirmary is never even mentioned these days.
if it does go to Leith, at least it won’t go down Fester Road – imagine the green and white mess that the tram company would have to wipe off the front of their shiny new vehicles – caused by disconsolate Hibees throwing themselves in front of the trams in despair?
About meenisterAn ordained Church of Scotland Minister since 1974. Started off in Doune which is near Stirling, before moving to Trinidad for four years; on my return to Scotland, I was a rural minister in Perthshire and then was asked to become Minister at St.Michael's Inveresk where I spent eleven happy years. A short ministry in Guernsey followed and since 1999, I was a full time healthcare Chaplain in the town of Dumfries in SW Scotland, retiring from that post in December 2012. I started this blog on 6 May 2012, soon after my wife, Helen, was diagnosed with secondary cancer - it was a sort of diversion and still is, following her death on 16 June. I hope it shows that there is a lighter side to religion, that it's not gloom and doom and that we can sometimes laugh at ourselves in a self-effacing way. Some posts are, however, I hope provoking and food for thought.
