'My uncle told me this from when he was a boy living in the Gorbals where an old couple were blown out of their window in a gas explosion...everyone was out in the street saying "oh that's terrible int it"... "that's a sin". etc. And the woman up the next close from them said as they were being taken away in the ambulance.
"Dae you know that's the first time they've been oot thegither in 30 years."'
