What a day.
It takes a lot to bring a tear to the eye of cynical old retiredmartin. David Cameron resigning, Noel Edmonds’ Christmas Presents (Hollies episode), the Maria McKee comeback this year.
But I’ll confess I wept a bit at 6.31am this morning as Matron May Parsons, originally from the Phillipines, gave the first Covid vaccine to Margaret Keenan, originally from Enniskillen, in Coventry.
May, you’re an inspiration.
I really want to make it to the Philippines once we’ve all been vaccinated, and meet whoever it is who reads my posts there. Do they have Wetherspoons in Manila ?
They DID have a Spoons in Enniskillen, but I never made it to the Linen Hall before Tim Martin sold it and the staff were relieved of their obligation to say “Real ale is supposed to taste like that“.
And you know all about Coventry, enjoying its historic day. I wish I was in the
Flying Standard Town Wall Tavern now, toasting May, Margaret and Pfizer with a pint of Bass.
