I fear that what I started as a generalisation of how my life has unravelled has started to veer off towards 'political' areas which we all know should be avoided on this caravan forum, I imagine there will be a fair few people of my age and experience, and it is this feeling that we are somehow not catered for in the modern world. Yes I could make more of an effort, I could follow celebrities on Twitter, or influencers on Tik Tok, but what is wrong with choosing to follow my own judgement,I feel sad for people who are influenced by complete strangers endorsing products on line, who then rush off and buy this stuff. similarly if the Princess of Wales wears a particular outfit, what posesses people to rush off to buy the same one. Is it just me, or is there something more sinister going on, where companies, not just in media are attempting to manipulate us,I have no idea whether I am falling for it, may be I am gullible,but I look at some of the strange things that happen nowadays and make my own decisions based on experience, and the assumption that if it sounds too good to be true it probably is, I expect people to try to con me, I expect the internet to be full of fraudulent websites, and I expect the long lost relative from Nigeria is not genuine, I do think it sad that this is what the world has become. Not all is lost however, while visiting Leamington Spa last year I lost my wallet,and a lady handed it to a security officer in the shopping precinct, who rang me and asked me to go and collect it. I met him and he handed it back intact, all he would say was the lady was upset to think someone had lost it, she didn't leave her name or contact number so I will never know who she was,but I will never forget her act of kindness.
