Having some Bossa Nova to hand as an antidote is a good idea - just don't put Morrissey on by mistake or your doomed!

Its really good to get some new music angles. Always aware that there is so much good stuff out there but finding it takes the same kind of intrepid exploration as clothes shopping and I'm not very good at either.

Clothes shopping. Neither know nor care.
So it's on to Amazon and:-

1) is it decent
2) is it warm
3) is it age appropriate

Then I'll buy a dozen so I don't have to think about it for another ten years. I'm already hoping I have enough shoes and boots to see me out.

Just as well you weren't engaged in the practice during the mid 70s. Otherwise everybody would be wondering why your were stomping around your fields dressed like Noddy Holder.

Can't say I'm thrilled by any of those criteria, HenGen, especially the last. I'm happily growing old disgracefully!

There is nothing wrong with the Lady Ga Ga look surely.
One good thing about being outdoors a lot is you don't have to be a slave to fashion. Practical and comfortable, waterproof ticks all the boxes

Ha ha, thought that would bring the thread to a grinding halt, reminds me of the two painters in Chewing the Fat, "you've taken that too far!"
