I hope that you enjoy reading this post on the weekly Friday Loose Bloggers Consortium where eleven of us write on the same topic. Today’s topic has been chosen by Padmum. I have known Padmum for the last 64 years. She always has the final word. Now, you understand why she chose that topic. Since she will in any case have the final malapert word on my post, I simply offer this cartoon and a poignant song as my contribution to the LBC blog post for this Friday.

The ten other bloggers who write regularly are, in alphabetical order, Delirious, gaelikaa, Grannymar, Maxi, Maria SF, Padmum, Paul, Shackman, The Old Fossil and Will. Do drop in on their blogs and see what their take is on this week’s topic. Since some of them may post late, do give some allowance for that too!
