Just checked and he was 86. If asked I'd have guessed a fair bit younger. The funny man behind so many funny men. RIP

Something for voters to ponder. ..
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

erm excuse mate, the young lady who lives here was going to New York for a few days i had to take her and a workmate to another wormates house from where they would start their journey...
they are all three pushing fifty... she reported one friend had shown an interest "i thought you said you lived wi an old guy" she confirmed that there was indeed an old guy at our address and that i was he, how old might you guess she asked and the closest they got was sixty two the other was younger... then  a few years ago when i went fishing with my sons pal [same age as my son] i was paying for the day ticket and asked for one and a pensioners, the bailiff started writing out the tickets then stopped and shook his head he nodded towards my sons pal "i'm sorry mate but i dont believe hes a pensioner"... :moon: :moon: :moon:
