Purveyor of Bollocks to the Crowned Heads of Europe
Ok, I know she died in May last year, but I can pretend, can't I?
A very inspirational woman …… what made you post about her today ? XXXX
I heard an old Desert Island Discs with her and Parkinson.That voice - after she got it back from 5 years of muteness as a child because the man who raped her was kicked to death, and she thought it was her voice which caused it - what a voice she got back.She was just lovely. She never inspired me - I don't think I am open to that sort of inspiration. Wrong everything.She said that if a 4 foot, 200 pound, Japanese Sumo wrestler made her laugh, then she would go with him, after her English husband died.Worth getting my legs amputated maybe? Maybe not.
He fancies her because she's tall with hair like his - a lookalike.
There is an element of truth in that. That, and the brown skin - hers, not mine, you understand.
Obvious to me.
As I write this I am aware of a mewing, baby seagull in the background and I realise it is the wrong time of year.Then I realise that it is my nose whistling as I breathe.
Hahahahaha !!!!! What a charming thought !! XXXX
Life with the over 60s!
A strange and fulfilled life. She certainly let nothing stop her.
Yes, but I won't completely delete your deleted comment - it is one extra on the hit count.
Dunno why it appeared twice, but here's another for your count.

Thanks. I owe you.
'I know why the caged bird sings' had a profound influence on me when it was published' - she has an incredible face.Her spirit lives on I think.
Yes - she is truly loveable, eh?
She had a serene way about her and a voice like chocolate
Yes indeed - what a voice, and what calm, common sense spoken.
I'll never forget watching her recite "On the Pulse of Morning" at Bill Clinton's inauguration. I was mesmerized!
I'll never forget her reading selections from 'Mein Kampf' at Ronald Regan's inauguration... oh no, that was someone else.
I guess I said the wrong thing...so sorry. :(
NO! I just have a very bad sense of humour, that's all! XXX
And I can be overly sensitive. XXX
