    • Reminds of that poem, When I am Old… I shall wear purple. I believe there is a line in there about running sticks along fences… Childhood rekindled (no pun intended) AND thank you so much for the repost! Fence post… I did it again. *rolls eyes and reaches for yet, MORE coffee*

      • IWhen I am an old woman I shall wear purple
        With a red hat that doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me,
        And I shall spend my pension
        on brandy and summer gloves
        And satin sandals,
        and say we’ve no money for butter.
        I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired,
        And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells,
        And run my stick along the public railings,
        And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
        I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
        And pick the flowers in other people’s gardens,
        And learn to spit.
        You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat,
        And eat three pounds of sausages at a go,
        Or only bread and pickle for a week,
        And hoard pens and pencils and beer mats
        and things in boxes.
        But now we must have clothes that keep us dry,
        And pay our rent and not swear in the street,
        And set a good example for the children.
        We will have friends to dinner and read the papers.
        But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
        So people who know me
        are not too shocked and surprised,
        When suddenly I am old
        and start to wear purple!
