Bye Bye Johnny
Knowing it was coming -- see the post for 15 June -- didn't help at all. And the time had to be right for saying goodbye. Today's flight from Melbourne to Cairns was the right time for me. I took the (empty) miniatures saved from the Newfoundland 'screech-in' and the latest flight across the Pacific and refilled them with good stuff before leaving this morning for the airport. With the Blitzkrieg Bop at full revs on the iPod and tequila and kahlua chasers on the tray, it was finally time to say a proper 'bye bye' to Johnny Ramone (died September 16).
It hurts like hell, even if Ronald Reagan was his favourite President. We are all allowed a few mistakes, I guess.
