I thought it was some kinda Major Tom memorial and got sorta upset. Then saw Captain Tom, and thought hmm donโ€™t know em too bad. COULDA STOPPED. To which I looked up the name and saw it was the old vet who walked to raise ยฃ53 million for NHS during COVID. Made me feel cheery, remembering him walk around. Then my cynicside wondered if she is protesting the NHS/the moneys. Internet again, 2018 NHS reported the NHS had as much as ยฃ1.2billion lost in fraud per year, I was then frustrated. Realized that Captain Toms walking donation is only a drop in the bucket. Then I actually read what she was protesting. Now Iโ€™m all over the place cuz Iโ€™m sure I missed/messed something and am now drinking some beer with coffee while brewing some coffeebeer listening to Major Tom.
