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