Sync and Swim…

*Bloody ‘ell, Clicky. That’s a blast from the past…*

We learnt on Friday, Dear Reader, that the actor Albert Finney had died, at the ripe old age of 82…

… As far as I know, Albert Finney was a kindly man: he sent an exquisite flower arrangement and warm words to my parent’s home in 1993 when my dad, Bob, died. Although he only knew the actor through the service he’d provided him – chauffeur driven cars – Bob and Finney had apparently struck up a warm, working relationship. Dad never mentioned this to us though, so when the illustrious Finney’s flowers arrived two days before the funeral, it came as a pleasant shock during a time of deep grief…

  1. I’m trying to “like” this and it won’t let me use the button!
    And for some reason, I can’t get an email for new merovee articles either.
    Speaking of dads, I saw both of those movies (with Douglas and Turner) at the movies with my dad. He loved movies. Took me to The Razor’s Edge when I was a kid. I was thinking, dad, why so Sirius?!
