"This is a non-musical posting" said Art. Actually his little story had the makings of a great song, just didn't happen to be in metric form etc.
I suppose there's a logic in reviving old threads sometimes to remind us that nothing really changes. I tend to miss the dates half the time, and often enough ignore the name of the poster while I'm skimming through - then I get brought to a skid by some post that seems oddly familiar. "What is this eejit getting at?" I find myself thinking, and then I see it's from me.
