Spalding area's John Ward on the day he turned around to find a lion on a lead
My ears picked up on hearing something on the radio, while channel hopping/tuning. A person being interviewed was explaining how they were ‘truly inspired’ by somebody whom I had never heard of - but there you go, can’t win ‘em all.
I carried on twiddling the knob until some basic music or singing stuff filtered through that didn’t sound like distorted distress signals coming from outer space. My mind wandered - it does very often - to the first bit I heard on the ‘truly inspired’ part as I thought about some events that might amount to the same.
One moment in time - perhaps not a ‘truly’ inspired one maybe but a much cheaper version - was in my formative years when I worked for a tyre company doing holiday relief on the breakdown truck.
