I suffer from insomnia and if you think that’s an ‘old person’s’ thing, then I was old at 27.
Last year I saw a documentary about the Vietnam war. As I was very young at the time, born in the USA but living in the UK I have vague memories of black and white BBC News footage, so I rarely don’t watch a documentary about the Vietnam war if one is on.
Watching the documentary it struck me how the war footage was all in black and white, and I mean all of it, or at least 97% of it. As the war progressed, public protests did too. However, what struck me was all of the footage of ‘Hippies’ and ‘Flower Power freaks’ was in colour.
So, I painted the Hippy-Copter.
Best Defence Budget Bucks ever spent, should they choose to buy it off me?
