And now cards…

The end of the great clear-up is in sight. Among various dust-encrusted forgotten horrors from the past, a metal box of business cards, including those of some interesting and some not-so-interesting people…


I am estimating this lot is from 15-20 years ago. But life was not totally uncool in those days. Tucked away among the presidents, Nobel winners, tycoons, media folk, politicians and all-purpose establishment bores – a Yelts Inn membership card.

    I recently found a name card from a meeting I had as a banker, probably in 1994, with three representatives of a company called Pacific Century Group. I wrote onto the card “arrogant pack”

    Reminds me of my Snakepit (Shekou) membership card

    About 35 years ago I paid $ 30- for something called “Straight Out” by one Ted Thomas. A collection of published and unpublished newspaper columns with lots of pictures, of said Ted Thomas, and, mysteriously, quite a few blank pages at the end. Regret still lingers because in those days you could buy 4 Heinies at a hotel bar for $30-.

    I was once handed a card from the stunning Fanny OR, Suk-fun. She didn’t seem to get it when I looked at it and asked “How about both?”. Pity, that.

    Mmmm Yelts Inn of a Friday night. Back when LKF wasn’t entirely plumbing the depths of the plastic coated Brue Forsyth Experience that it is today, now Nosferatu holds Leninistic control of all there.
