Hi Glenfinnan

My new Broons calendar (family tradition) is sitting on the kitchen table and will be pinned in the usual spot on our kitchen wall, just after the local church bells or noisy fireworks

I raise a glass to all Gransnetters far and wide. ??
Wishing you all a very happy healthy 2020?

Looking back over the years I can't quite distinguish the Broons from Oor Wullie.

Oor Wullie has spicky hair, wears dungarees and sits on his upturned bucketgrin

Have been getting The Broons and Oor Wullie annuals (as well as sometimes the pages from the Sunday Post) for many years.

Oor Wullie, your Wullie, a'body's Wullie.

Like family to me, bless 'em.

Two of my best Christmas presents were The Broons and Oor Willie albums during the 50’s. Years later bought them for both DDs who loved them too. ‘Jings ma boab’
