A 1960’s leaflet about guide dogs, with a nice picture of a record shop to colour in. Make sure you stay inside the lines though.

On Retirement

Now that my retirement age has been put back until I’m 97, and I don’t have a loyal bunch of co-workers to wish me well, I’ll probably never get one of these.

As found in a Kathleen Ferrier LP (possibly the departed’s gift).

1970s pub match book cover, fell out of a copy of Steely Dan’s Can’t Buy a Thrill.
