that looks like the Hielan mans' umbrella at the bottom of Argyle Street.

It's still working!!
                 My sister,sister-in-law and I had a  4 day break and how Glasgow has changed since my last visit,gone are most of the old streets we remembered,the town has become very cosmopolitan having moved on with the times.... its just great, can hardly wait until our next trip!!
 
I have as I always do, been thinking about my Glaswegian husband who passed away 3yrs ago today.. and his first chat up line to me as we were walking out, it was, "dae ye like chicken?" I said "yes".."then grab a wing"that broke the ice and I took his arm...I was still taking that arm over 50 years later,like most Scots he loved a singsong and one of his party pieces was this.  

                        An Irishman an Englishman and a Hebrew
                         were sentenced to be hung down Texas way
                        The Judge,he granted each of them a favour
                          that he would hang them all upon their favourite tree
                        The Englishman said a Pear tree and I'm happy
                        The Irishman said any tree would do
                        The Judge ,he turned around and looked at Moses 
                           these were the words delivered by the Jew
                         Hang me high on the Gooseberry tree, it's the tree
                           that is dearest to me,it's tree I love best,it's my dying request
                          hang me high on the Gooseberry tree
                          The Judge says ,now Moses you know,that the Gooseberry tree is
                            too low
                           Never mind that says Mose I will wait until it grows
                             hang me high on the Gooseberry tree
                             
                                  (to the tune of "In the shade of the old apple tree")
