Can't get no satisfaction ... sorry sleep

If I even make it to the Old Age Pension, I know with certainty that I can imagine nothing less welcome than the sound of an infant crying. Or the movement of my loved one leaving the bed because it happens to be the night that none of our eight au pairs are scheduled on. It is for this reason that I am confident that The Rolling Stones will be back on a world tour soon. While Mick and Ronnie may well be the best fathers in the world, they need their sleep.

A few weekends ago there were pictures of Ronnie with an infant twins on his lap having lunch in London. The very next day there was Ronnie (69) and his wife Sally (38) walking down Grafton Street. He looked much more at home carrying high quality shopping bags.

It is not so long ago since we were all appalled by an Indian woman who had given birth at the ripe old age of 72. People said it was vile, disgusting, stomach-churning and that was only the beginning. But we think nothing of it when it is males having babies with women half their age.
