Crappy Christmas.....(or is it?)

Christmas cheer was in short supply this afternoon in Shawlands (a Glasgow southside neighbourhood where used to live) There's a sad looking tree behind some security fencing outside the Granary pub. At first glance it seems to be un-decorated but a closer look revealed that it was festooned with lights but no one has bothered to connect them to a power supply.  

At least there is a substantial base to prevent it being blown over


After Larry's comment re a generator (below) I thought - could there be one in the bag in last photo? After all who would erect a tree & lights and not power it.

So I took a run back tonight and the lights were on! They are connected to the mains supply. It's still crappy that they weren't on during the day for the shoppers but I'm glad to say I was wrong and there is some festive cheer in Shawlands. 

I'll take this opportunity to wish all of you who visit my blog a merry Christmas and a happy & healthy New Year.


  1. And Bah Humbug to you! (looks like a job for a Honda generator)

    1. See correction above - Scrooge hasn't visited Glasgow after all!

  2. Let there be light, lol. It looks nice all lit up.

  3. that's better...Mr. Cratchett.
