Blockheads Tent of Edinburgh
The meeting on June 25th went well and Christine brought along a cake to belatedly celebrate what would have been Stan Laurel's 127th birthday on the 16th.
A surprise absence was Gordon Davie who was having a reunion with his friends who attended the last live concert by Elvis Presley 40 years ago last weekend! Now that's what I call a conversation stopper.
Our next meeting will be on Sunday 3rd September.
Just to clarify what Charlie was saying, I was at the last two concerts that Elvis ever did, 25th and 26th June 1977. Not in Vegas but in Cincinnati and Indianapolis. There were three of us from Edinburgh on a trip organised by the UK Fan Club - 250 people in all, also including three from the Newcastle area, who we knew from before so teamed up with during the trip. We arranged to go down and visit them to talk over old times. I hadn't seen one of them for 40 years! But we all had a great time.
