The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Kadunk kadunk kadunk

We have lived here in the Furlong house for years with the sound of Kadunk kadunk kadunk reverberating through it as vehicles passing on the road activated the “non rocking”!!! manhole cover on the road outside. It even used to wake the babies on our babysitting duty days. It drove us crazy.

We complained.

Someone came and drew a big blue cross on the very rocking non rocking cover. Nothing else happened.

We complained again.

Someone came and painted a red cross over the blue cross. Nothing else happened.

We were about to complain again. This procedure has now taken YEARS I point out.

Today, something happened! They closed off the whole road. There were traffic lights, four huge trucks, bollards, and men in yellow jackets, all working in the sleet and rain, just for us!

Isn’t that amazing?

Right now they are finishing off….

Here is proof.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
