Tales From A Church Tea Room
Number 2, Three Sweet Little Old LadieseBook - 2015
In a Church tea room yes you do find young people, why wouldn't you? But, obviously in an Age UK meeting in a church tea room, you will sometimes get the New 30 type 55 year olds like me, on a mission to test out the 'old years' to see what it's going to be like. There are also those who have miraculously managed to take the bullets of life, they have survived terrible weather forecasts, voted in new and out the old governments and immediately begun to complain as this new lot do exactly the same as the others and then wait, with bitter twisted long faces until that magical time when they are called upon through the debris of another war, Civil or other, to demand yet another bunch to abuse them ... people never learn on that one id est if a man wearing his war uniform id est a grey suit and tie appears on television and refuses to answer yes or no, immediately switch to Judge Rinder or top star Jeremy Kyle, King of the chavs, where you will get a hands down better show with fewer promises and lies Jeremy's biggest lie is 'No!

Hyde, the naughty gene, of course lays dormant in public, avoiding detection, but sometimes shows itself in January sales, or in bus queues where something flips Hyde into action, sometimes bloody if they have a stick which is a prop to justify Disability Allowance and Jeckyl is forced to take a back seat (no, not on the bus); because she is nice and wants nothing to do with obnoxious Hyde.
