And Then Another Farewell...

And so Andrew Sachs bows out. He may have left us but I doubt his light will dim. Sleep well and thank you.

As all the old generation of comics and comic actors depart, very soon we’ll only have the new generation left. Those who consider it cleaver and edgy and progressive to use a profanity for every third word rather than used infrequently, with slick timing and hammer-like effect.

If memory serves, back in the day, Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown very rarely resorted to the use of any profanity. On the off-chance I’ve got that wrong, Timidadians? Look away now and if you’re a SJW or a member of the LGTBIHGYSD community, a millennial, a snowflake or of an alphabetically or binary designated persuasion I may not be aware of at this time, just move quickly onwards. However, anyone with a sense of humour, have a smile a while.

Last chance and having said all that, all you aforementioned folk, if you do find your curiosity is getting the better of you and you’re just itching to have a click, please ensure that before - and that’s important - BEFORE you click you have a friend with you who’s fully conversant with the purpose and use of a defibrillator.


Endingly, I caught a lovely line on the Fox channel the other evening used by the program anchor during a discussion regarding how the losers can take any success of the winners and put a negative spin on that success. He said that the opponents of Jesus, when they saw him walk on water, stated, “But, but, but look! He got his feet wet!” I liked that.

Quote;  Thomas Carlyle.

“No man lives without jostling and being jostled; in all ways he has to elbow himself through the world, giving and receiving offence.”
