I love that.
You know when you're 85 you don't give a sh*t about anything. I love people like Dick. I have a friend here is only a mere 75, but he lives life like it is just beginning. I am only a tiny 61, but even I care less and less about attitudes and opinions and all the stuff that so many British people are caught up in.
I have loads of opinions, but you know, they change all the time. Years ago I would have an opinion or an idea and I would defend it to the end. Today I find politicians and any other authorities whatever they are as people who care less for me than themselves. So sod them all.
Give Dick a very happy birthday from me and I hope that his god goes with him, wherever that may be.
