Ah, that's a shame. Jeffrey gone and now Freddy. 71 isn't much of an age these days. (My grandad, who I never met, always maintained that 'three score and ten' is a person's lot, and duly died at 70.)

An old saying goes -  a good fence lasts for three years, a good dog lasts for three fences, a good horse lasts for three dogs and a good man lasts for three horses.

My mind truly is in the gutter...
You may quote me on that.

Purple Rain actor Clarence Williams III. He was part of The 'Mod Squad', a counterculture Police Show that I must admit I'd never heard of till today.

I dunno about anyone else, but I'd be pissed off if I bought a new fence and it needed replacing after only three years.

Our wee dog turned 15 last month. So on the basis of that saying, he must be a VERY good dog!

Am I uncultured if I only know Ned from the role as Otis in the Superman films?

I got the say, the only time I watched Deliverance was when I had to stop it with "that" scene with him.

RIP nevertheless.
