The Powers That Be

Yes, it's time to get back on the train, due to a circumstance beyond our control, and while it might not be as disastrous as a pigeon from hell, it does feel rather like a chain gang...

Oh, don't get me wrong (hey - another Pretenders song!) - I like my job well enough, but after almost a month off, it does feel a bit tragic to be heading back to the office.  The last couple of weeks, since we finished traveling, has confirmed beyond the shadow of a doubt that I will greatly enjoy retirement.

One in which I can spend my days trying to be as effortlessly cool as Chrissie Hynde. Oh, I know I've had thirty years and more already, but I'm still nowhere near...


  1. Non of us are, dear.

    [The gene pool of her children is fairly cool, too - one by Ray Davies and one by Jim Kerr...] Jx

  2. Oh sugar. Commiserations. Let the soaring harmonies of the inimitablec Ms. Hynde & absent friends on the phrase "for making us part" lift you. The phone, the TV and the News of the World...prophetic indeed.

    1. Absolutely - as the years pass, this song only gets wiser...
