Mick and Keith’s day off

In England, it’s traditional for elderly couples to spend their remaining days sitting in deckchairs and not saying anything to each other. You can see this in most English seaside towns. With each passing year, Mick and Keith look more and more like a couple that ran out of things to say years ago, but nonetheless are determined to stick it out to the bitter end. In this drawing Mick has finally got round to reading Keith’s 2010 memoir, ‘Life’ in which Keith lets all his feelings out towards Mick (hence that rather sheepish look of Keith’s). But better out than in don’t you think?
