Jock was peeling potatoes – I’m roasting a chicken tonight for supper – and as usual, singing. But he couldn’t quite remember the tune.
“It’s a quarter to three… di di dum … ! from him – and “…one more for the road” from me.
How did that go? Out comes Lappy. Frank Sinatra, One more for the road tapped into the keyboard. And before you could draw breath, up pops Old Blue Eyes onto the screen, leaning on a bar like an Edward Hopper painting, and the syrupy-sad notes are with us.
One thing leads to another, and nostalgia washes over us with an all-time favourite Sinatra Song, There Used to be a Ball Park to cement the mood.
Jock is coming round to the idea of the benefits of technology. As a technincompoop, I’m not sure how to insert the you-tube clips here, but I’m hoping the links will take you there.
