Day Trip - Welfare Association

The over-65's in Tayport are still talking about their day out.

On Thursday there were 147 in four buses and two private cars for the outing to Crieff organised by the old folks welfare association.

They travelled by Cupar, Milnathort, Glendevon, Gleneagles and were welcomed at Crieff by Lord Provost McLean.

Said the old folks club convenor Mrs Wm Grosert "the older they are the better they know how to enjoy life".

An Advantage

A friend who is constantly being chaffed for lack of stature found it to his advantage the other day.

During his lunch hour he went straight from work to the hairdressers. After performing the needful the hairdresser remarked "you'd better hurry up son, or you'll be late back to school".

"Shorty" bit back an angry remark when he noticed he had been charged for a boy's haircut!
