On the bleakest day Autumn could muster

Meeting in the Town Hall. Me, Milton, a few guys from the IT Department. Trying not to talk about the new Town Hall redevelopment. Trying to concentrate on part of a new network. I glance over and catch my reflection in a computer screen. I look round the table. It feels like five minutes ago that we were youngish, go-getting, can-do.

Just five minutes ago, surely?

I wonder who these old men are, quietly waiting for retirement or worse...

i'm hoping that this evening finds you in a less melancholy frame of mind, sugarpie! ;~D xoxoxox

Thanks savannah, you know I like to wallow in a bit of melancholy. :-)

Pearl said...

Oh, Kevin, that hits kinda close to home.

I, too, enjoy a bit of melancholy, but I'm off now to stare at myself in the mirror.

p.s. No worries. I shall always love you. :-)

'old men'

Oh no! Not you!

Kevin Musgrove said...

Pearl and Pat: thank you ladies.
