Memorable Decades

They say the Sixties- by which I mean all that fabulosity and grooviness- only really happened to a few people- most of whom lived in London. I can't disagree. My sister owned the White Album and we listened to it quite a bit and otherwise- well- we didn't even smoke tobacco.

The same is true of the Eighties. No-one on my street wore red braces or marshalled lines of charlie with their credit card.  I was living in Greater Manchester, going though an adjustment in my marital arrangements and thinking mainly about theology.
