Monty Python
« on: September 23, 2016, 05:17:50 PM »
While we've talked about it quite often on here, we never did get around to opening a thread on Monty Python. Sadly, it's bad news to kick things off:

All the very best to Terry and his family.

Michael Palin:
Quote
Terry J has been my close friend and workmate for over fifty years. The progress of his dementia has been painful to watch and the news announced yesterday that he has a type of aphasia which is gradually depriving him of the ability to speak is about the cruellest thing that could befall someone to whom words, ideas, arguments, jokes and stories were once the stuff of life. Not that Terry is out of circulation. He spends time with his family and only two days ago I met up with him for one of our regular meals at his local pub. Howard Johnson, an American friend of Python, was in town and took this picture. Terry doesnít say very much but he smiles, laughs, recognises and responds, and Iím always pleased to see him. Long may that last.
