This was cool

At dinner tonight Kid One and I were reminiscing about how when we went to London ('05 high school trip) our tour guide, Francy, had the bus driver stop on our way to Heathrow so Allegra could photograph the Battersea Power Station.
Francy, the bestest guide in the world, accompanied us to London after our stay in Paris. Thank goodness he did. We would not have had as good a time in London if he hadn't been there.
He is a musician and he enjoyed getting to know the teen-agers in the group and their musical tastes.
Francy knew how much Allegra shared his love for Pink Floyd, so when the bus driver was taking us to the airport that Sunday morning he asked him to stop, so she could take a picture.
It was just one of those cool things that happen in life.
The power plant is pictured on the cover of Pink Floyd's "Animals" album from 1977, which you can see below.

Hard to believe this middle-aged mom still has some coolness left, isn't it?
