Such a perfect day

I’m in trauma from Mammy’s death earlier this week, and now I learn that Lou Reed has also kicked the bucket, in his early 70’s.
As a boy I used to wait till Dad left for his early morning shift at the pit before slipping into Mammy’s bed in our cold bedroom but to warm myself next to Mammy’s warm and generous body.
http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/QYEC4TZsy-Y&source=udsRoll forward 20 years, and I lifted Lou Reed’s legs one by one as he climbed the short stairs to the stage at Leeds Polytechnic, fearing that he would collapse when he reached the top.
He didn’t. He somehow got to the microphone and delivered an excellent set.
What a perfect day.
Now he’ll be with Mammy in Heaven, singing this song.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
