WELL done Andy Murray at Wimbledon, but not everyone was happy about the BBC cancelling the film Raiders Of The Lost Ark in order to show the tennis.
We like the film fan who tweeted: "With Raiders being cancelled on BBC, I'm going to recreate some of the scenes at home. Who wants to start the ball rolling?"
NEWTON Mearns reader Arthur Yaffy was sorry to learn of the death of former Bonnyton Golf Club professional Jimmy Macleod, and tells us: "I remember, as a young man, asking him for advice on how to lengthen my drives.
"After watching me hit a few shots, he said, 'If you want the ball to go further, hit it on your backswing – it's faster that your downswing.'"
Dentist Elizabeth Glass at the Philip Friel clinic in Glasgow was attempting to order a book on dentistry from retailers Amazon whose system said it was out of stock and suggested instead EL James's adult girly novel Fifty Shades Of Grey.
We don't know whether the system is inaccurate or if it actually knows a great deal about teeth in Glasgow.
SAD to see the end of the Euro 2012 Championship last night. As Gordon Blain in Perth observed about finalists Italy: "Add chicken in front of any Italian player's surname and it sounds like a great dish. Chicken Balotelli, Chicken Nocerino, Chicken Pirlo -"
"THE girlfriend was looking through holiday brochures," said the chap in the Glasgow pub, "so I asked her if she fancied a wee cruise.
"She got very excited until I told her, 'Well, the film star Tom is back on the market according to the newspapers.'"
READER Iain Watt notices on the website myjobscotland that Strathclyde Uni is advertising for a "university chaplin". Unfortunately the advertisement did not state if the uni also supplied the bowler hat, moustache and walking cane.
WE mentioned the block of Red Road flats being demolished with explosives. However Robert Florence, co-writer of the BBC comedy series Burnieston, who lived nearby, was not a fan.
Says Robert: "It's fine to romanticise them a bit, but if you weren't having to live in them, they had become a mess. I didn't feel anything when they fell down. I think I would have had to have been inside it to feel something."
NOT everyone has a kind word about traffic wardens. Reader Jim Fitzpatrick tells us the gag: "As the coffin was being lowered into the ground at a traffic warden's funeral, a voice from inside could be heard shouting, 'I'm not dead! Let me out!'
"But the minister replied, 'Sorry pal, I've already started the paperwork.'"
