The life span of a human isn’t terribly long as the older we get the quicker life passes us by.
Today is the funeral of my next door neighbour. He wasn’t a young man by any means and he had just retired from many years of hard graft. A few days later he was found on the kitchen floor. He was gone. A couple of days before his death we had been talking and venting our views on the government’s proposed changes in pensions and retirement ages. Younger readers of this may think we are a couple of whinging old farts but I’m sure you will be exactly the same as us when you reach our age that’s of course if you do. R.I.P Ian my friend.
Although I wanted to mention my deceased neighbour in my blog I don’t want it to be all doom and gloom. Looking through my archive of pictures I decided to post a picture from a shoot that was done for a photo-story called ”Lady Of The Manor” that featured a girl called Kelly Hearn who played the part of the maid and Ms Harrison Marks the Lady.
