Whenever I hang out with Gary, I feel like it’s summer of 2011 all over again. Except it’s not. It’s winter of 2014 and a lot has changed. We spent a lot of time together that year just hanging out, but now we’re both grown-ups, and—even though we live closer than ever—we just don’t see as much of one another. We both have demanding jobs (Gary plays keyboards in Red Hot Chilli Pipers), he has a fiancé (Katie, she gets the Ashley stamp of approval), and we both have scary mortgages to pay off.
Today we went for coffee and a walk around Kelvingrove Park. As always, Gary let me take his picture. He has hair now. Our friendship has, of course, been documented in photos, which you can look through here.
