no ideas but in things …


age gracefully

… keep moving! Another fav of mine. A mere 90 years old. To be in the new Mary Poppins movie apparently. I remember another under-rated actor Jack Palance [Attack! 1956 a superb ant-war film] doing push-ups [one-armed] at the Oscars in the early 1990s. Never too old.


Still going strong at just turned 100 years old! May be he and Olivia de Havilland¬†should do something together? ¬†Usually played the strong man but I most enjoy his comedy double acts with that other great Burt Lancaster. We won’t see the likes of the Golden Age actors again. Shame Zsa Zsa Gabor missed the ton by a few weeks.


I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. T.S. Eliot


Someday I’ll have a disappearing hairline
Someday I’ll wear pyjamas in the daytime

Afternoons will be measured out
Measured out, measured with
Coffee spoons and T.S. Eliot
