George Miller (27.5.43-29.9.91)

29 Sep

  (Click on picture to enlarge – George is on right of picture, as in my politics, I’m on the Left!) The above photo is one of the last taken of us both, a few months before he died. It was one of the publicity shots taken by Channel 4’s ‘Out’ program. We were briefly […]

False Economies

28 Sep

I get regular medication from St Thomas’ Hospital, which I visit twice every three months, once for tests and a few weeks later to see the doctor. I used to collect my medication from the Pharmacy on my visit to the hospital doctor. Now they have a contractor send them to me by ‘special delivery’ […]

Cruisin’

01 Sep

That word means different things to different people. To the rock’n’roll crowd it means driving around in big American 1950’s cars, to the gay community it means ‘looking for trade’ (sex). When you reach your dotage, like myself (62) and my mother (93 next week) it is more likely to mean going on a sedate […]
