THE FINAL POST

I am bowed down for eight long years in a state of abject praise and wonderment at Joe the magnificent for his endearingly readable, smackingly truth telling opus, on Rummy’s last post.

Few horses transform and elevate lives enough for our oft humdrum existences filled with trials and tribulations that often defeat, for us to be suddenly transported high above the firmament to share the most venerable platform with God and the holiness of saints and to feel the warmth of grace fill us completely.

That happened in 1977, and I the miserable and sinning wretch gamble, was sure enough up there high above the clouds, dancing with multitudes, and catching the sight of at least one saint flying past in tears.

This sort of seismic event happens probably once or twice in a lifetime, so let us celebrate and rejoice in it once again, and in the company of our very own Joe – who looks pretty damn fine in his halo 🤠
