Retirement = time

by Jane Grimshaw

 

Buddy Rich: “There were so many individual styles 30 or 40 years ago”.
That was when I met Alan.

It’s true:

Neither of us knows the date. And you are out of luck: there are no wedding photos.

But this is what Alan looked like back in 1983. He was basically the same then, just a bit more hair.

Many of you know Alison, also seen climbing above. She was quite a character back then and she is quite a character now. (Check Eleanor’s submission to this ‘schrift to see heredity at work.)

Alison is the only person I know that Alan always hears, usually listens to, and never interrupts.

“Messy” doesn’t even begin to describe Alan’s preferred style of living:

messy-office

“A fool tidies up, a genius rules over chaos”,
Einstein almost certainly didn’t say.

CONGRATULATIONS, GREAT DECISION!

RETIREMENT = TIME TO HANG OUT

TIME TO WATCH ALL of the TDF

TIME TO RULE OVER A BIT MORE OF THE CHAOS
