Wisdom of the Norman Kind

6 Oct

Remember the posts where I told you about my childhood? Well, part of that angrez upbringing was a man introduced to me by Daddy when I was about 9. This little man with the puckered face, clumsy shuffle and eyes that could melt fudge was a fixture in my decade-old life, once I had unearthed him. ‘The Bulldog Breed’ and ‘Man of the Moment’ cracked me up each time I watched them, and believe you me, I have two very worn VHS tapes to show for it. If you haven’t experienced his magic yet, don’t wait another minute.

R.I.P., Sir Wisdom. What a blessing to leave laughter behind.
