-but who cares because it's the end of August
- I finished a pair of handspun/handknit socks in BFL/Nylon
On Sunday, sadly, Richard Attenborough passed away. Many people will know him as the Santa in the remake of Miracle on 34th Street, or the old gentleman in Jurassic Park, but I want to revisit some of his earlier and most interesting performances. This was a man who was incapable of a bad performance and could creep you out as well as make you laugh.
Rillington Place before they tore it down. That site- Reel Streets is a gold mine- click when you have a few hours to spend.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of Richard Attenborough's performances, but some that I think are worthwhile. So sad to see "Dickie Darling" as he was known to friends, pass. He would have been 91 tomorrow.
Have a great long weekend- I'll be fleecin'.
