The Great Leveller..

A few weeks ago I made my sad trip towards middle age...

I went to Kitchener to pick up my new glasses which, despite trying to avoid it for a number of years, had to be "progressives"; the nice word for bi-focals.

As I drove back through the early spring gloom, rain pelting my window I tried to cheer myself up by listening to the radio.

I jumped through all the stations that C had pre-programmed and was happy to find one playing "Spandau Ballet"...that is until the station announced its call letters. It was CHFI. For all that grew up in Toronto, that was the "easy listening" "Lite favourites" station that your mother listened to. You could always count on hearing "Do you Know the Way to San Jose" or "We've Only Just Begun" by the Carpenters...and now they were playing "Spandau Ballet"...
