Old guys rule OK!
Modern technology provides us with portable ‘HiFi’ units capable of substantial quality and decibel capability. A downside of this, is that some of our wonderful quiet spaces can be polluted with the wailing cacophony and/or boom boom noise that seems to be popular among certain sections of the (younger) population.
I was nonplussed therefore while cycling through the park a few days ago, to hear very loud sounds coming from some distance ahead. My heart sank, but as I rounded a corner, the source came into view. It was a very senior citizen, parked up on a mobility scooter by the pathway, enjoying early 60s heavy metal rock music emanating from a bag secreted on his vehicle. From the look on his face he did not appear to be enjoying it very much. I wondered whether he was just very hard of hearing, or from his central position by the path, near some benches and a café, his grim visage indicated instead some sort of revenge against the perpetrators of what passes for modern tastes in ‘music’.
Rock on granddad!
