Cool Hand Luke

In Uncategorized on December 5, 2011 by grahamharrowell

Our first snowfall today. When things brightened up we set off for the supermarket. But what’s that I hear drifiting on the breeze? Is it the blues? No, more likely it’s a work-song. Up on the moor road we come across the chain gang. Well, this being UK there’s no chain but there is a gang of orange-clad offenders purging their Community Service Orders. What better job than shifting the snow (what lttle there is) from a path that nobody uses and which will clear by itself in an hour once the sun gets to work. Not for these guys the mirror sunglasses of the shotgun toting deputy from the deep south watching their every move but a shivering supervisor from the Probation Service in the frozen north wondering why he ever chose a career in social work and the public sector.
