The phone rings, a sad song

Life stings, it is all wrong.

    Moscow calling, those were the days, timely. Now we can’t put our mobiles down in case we miss something; what is it they sow in human heads.

    This made me think of the phone call bearing bad news (which I see now isn’t what it was about). Another great florette, Willow. πŸ™‚πŸŒΈπŸ’•

      It can be interpreted any way you like, it did start off as exactly that, bad news then it seemed to morph. Hope you are well and happy Betty πŸ’œ

        Thanks, Willow. Ups and downs, trying to be positive. Hope you’re doing as well as possible. I know the difficulties. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. ❀️❀️❀️
