One Little Task Completed, Another Still To Do [Feb. 23rd, 2012|12:41 pm]
Tony Grist
I finally posted off my application for an old folk's free bus pass. I became eligible last autumn (Ruth got me the form) but I've been putting off completing it- not because I'm ashamed of being old (honestly!) but because I'm a born procrastinator.

Talking about procrastination, I need to go through the racks- as Ailz reminded me this morning- and find something I can wear at my son's wedding- which is now less than a month away. He's getting married in three stages (only one of which we'll be attending)- first in Tokyo where he lives, then in Korea where his fiancee comes from and finally in Birmingham where his mother lives. The Korean ceremony will involve him getting into hanbok.  I was telling him yesterday not to forget to have someone on hand with a movie camera.

Old folks get FREE bus passes in the UK? We get a Senior pass here, but have to pay half-fares for each ride. You have a good system over there - national health care, bus passes, wht else? Makes me wonder what we Americans have to brag about...

We have winter fuel allowance too.

Every time the temperature stays cold for a week the government gives us £25

That hanbok costume is so colourful! It should make for some great wedding snaps. :)

I was going to say it puts our Western wedding garb into the shade, but I suppose it doesn't really. The western wedding dress is also a thing of wonder.
