BEAUTY

IS VERY MUCH

IN THE EYE

of the beholder. Or of the heavily indoctrinated/politically correct.

TIME MOVES ON

it seems. To not digress, my grand-nephew attended the RNZN’s celebrations of its very own 75th anniversary. He sent me a copy of the glossy magazine that went with the show. So?

—which I uplifted from a newsletter that came in this morning and keeps me up to date. This guy may well meet the NZ Govt’s definitions of ‘Maori’ but to my untutored eye he looks … looked … honkie. Good on him for doing what he thought was right, but—

pc—with the best will in the world I do not class him as ‘beautiful’; nor his facial enhancements (I wonder if the navy would allow folks of UK descent to cover themselves with woad?) (Don’t ask. Don’t even consider such a blatantly racist/non PC remark). Damned cynic …

Anyway—my GN’s glossy has told me—if nothing else—that the ‘navy’ of today is totally different to the navy I was in. Hell, they even load the guns from the other end these days (although the bang still comes out the same).

As for me …

argus

… I’m quite beautiful enough already.

boom-boom
