In those days Timex made children's watches with Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and Hopalong Cassidy on their faces. For some uncanny reason these are important memories for me. Timex watches are inexpensive and certainly not in the Rolex league but I’ve found they do the job asked of them and seem to last forever, though the Timex factory in Dundee didn't. It closed in 1993.
|Hopalong Cassidy, who he ? A big deal for kids in the early 1950s|
Sad to say my dark blue strap had no magical properties and Dundee lost 2-1 to a second goal scored in the very last minute of the match. Unless my team improves dramatically it will be in danger of losing its place in the elite league of Scottish football.
