The Chapbook is a space for sharing, remembering, commenting and exchanging views, tit-bits, bon mots and other jollification. It is the take on the world of a small collective of 'auld geezers' all in their mid 60s with half a lifetime or more experience of work (mostly social work with the odd scientist), politics, football, real ale, adventures and travel. Its for our amusement but any and all are welcome to drop in and leave comments (especially welcome are would be apprentice members who will probably have shared part of the lives or experiences of some or all of us here. This is the third attempt to launch such a site so lets hope the old saw is true.

More representative musings will be added over time.
