Oh, I’m sure he’ll figure it out once he hears “The Farmer in the Dell.”
RIP Mr. Williams. :cry:

Glad to hear he’s ok. And while I appreciate that a a hand-written webpage is cutesy and personal, I can’t read his fucking handwriting.

Really? Huh, it’s perfectly legible for me. :woman_shrugging:

Perhaps I can blame the move to digital communications, the death of handwriting. RIP.

Little known, but this guy had ‘root cause’ responsibility for that git Jonathan Aitken going to jail for perjury. We need more journalists like him today - more than ever, today!

Not only can I read his handwriting, but that picture looks just like him.

As a boomer I can drive shift and read clocks of all kinds. I can even do predictive texting. Not that I need to do any of those things. Times change but the dude abides. Not due here for a while, we hope.

Jeff Bridges.

Although it could also plausibly say J.W. Bridges.

I’m one to talk. My signature says Al Radical and my name isn’t even Al.

Yeah. And mine just basically says “squiggly meaningless line.”
