Nostalgic notions, sentimental sighings, wistful wonderings, rueful reflections, poignant ponderings & yearnings for yesteryear! (With a few profound perplexities & puzzling paradoxes for good measure.)

TWO WHATS ARE BETTER THAN ONE?
What was a fella to do? I had forgotten her birthday and
the shops were closed. What could a woman want by way of
a belated card for her neglected birthday celebrations? And
then it came to me: "A picture of myself of course!".
So I set to work. I quarter-folded a blank piece of A4
paper and then did a quick pen and acrylic ink coloured pic
of myself (as I then looked, with beard and short hair), added a
humorous message and popped it in the post. (That's a black
and white photocopy of the original colour illo above.)
They say it's the thought that counts; well, I thought
about enclosing a tenner with it - but then I thought
better of it. Two thoughts are better than one, right?
