Last Good Friday I did what I usually do on any Good Friday and loaded up the car and headed for the recycling centre at Lyne. It was closed ,it is every Friday and Thursday.”Lack of demand” was what I was subsequently told by my local counsellor.On Good Friday the demand was so lacking that there was a bit of jam in the in the lay-by at the entrance as cars tried to turn round .Next day there was a thirty five minute wait to get into the recycling centre (nothing wrong with the demand on a Saturday !) .I had a good natured dialogue with my counsellors about all this,I think we all know that not much will change as a consequence because that is just how things are. For the next few days I had the sense of “deja vu” .At my age I think it is a good policy to make yourself remember things (brain exercise to delay dementia) so I couldn’t let it go .Two weeks after Easter I was driving past the entrance when a tune popped into my head.
Tune lasts 20 minutes and will become an “ear worm”.
There are a couple of phrases that might cause offence today.
I am told that you can divide US citizens of about our age into two groups, those that listen to this every Thanks Giving day and those who have always hated it.
