“If we always do what we always did, then we will always get what we always got.”

I’d been doing this pilgrimage to the EPR Arms for decades now and you could almost measure how many pints of badgers I’d sunk by measuring the stretch marks on my six pack. (Party seven if truth were known!)
I was thinking about an earlier life I’d had – as an Information Manager in the hospital across the road. We thought we would have an electronic patient record by now, thirty years on and, apart from my aching back and knees, relatively little has changed. But now things are moving at a pace.
A Christmas Record
Approaching the EPR Arms on a starry, starry (twinkly, frosty) night.
’ ……and a partridge in a pear…’
The door opened and shut again. I walked closer.
‘……...five gold rings, Four calling….’
Shut again. Lots of comings and goings tonight. Open………
’and a partridge in a pear tree’.
I held the door opened and this time heard all the remaining days of the twelve days of Christmas.
Another night in the EPR Arms. The sky achieving a darker, dusky hue when another Hugh walked in through the main door.
