Ok, let's explain something. I have a weird sense of humor sometimes. I'm like Chandler from Friends, I tend to make a quip out of everything. I like to laugh and make other people laugh. A lot of my posts are jokes and funny memes. That's me. I was born in the U.S. but, technically I'm 100% British, my parents and whole family are from England. I grew up on Fawlty Towers, Red Dwarf, The Young Ones, and Blackadder. But I also have been through a lot with my health and still go through a lot, and keeping up a good sense of humor and outlook about things is one of the ways I get through it.
But, if you'll draw your attention to the picture, you'll also understand why my personality is slightly humorous...this is what I grew up with ⬆⬆⬆. Just one of the many ways my Dad used to entertain my sister and I. 😂 Imagine this chasing you through the house, or having a conversation with you. Oh, I learned a lot from "Dad" Animal. Luckily, eating drums, speaking in guttural shouts and monosyllabic grunts, and destroying property was not included. "WO-MAN!!!"

16th January 2018. Part 1/3
This is a special personal posting to commemorate the anniversary, 30 year’s ago today, of the death of my father, the actor Ballard Berkeley, best remembered as the Major in Fawlty Towers. I had seen him in hospital the evening before, and his last words to me were “You go now, my boy”, as he writhed in pain in the final stage of cancer.
The following morning, from the hospital, my mother called me at work at 9.30am, to say those terrible words “Your father died 15 minutes ago”. I called a local undertaker whom I had been to school with, to make the necessary arrangements and went to my parents house to make calls to the media. By 11.30am, I had contacted the Newspapers and TV News, and Trevor MacDonald was the first to announce my father’s death on the midday ITV News. It made the top of the news on TV and Radio that Saturday and obituaries where all over the Sunday papers. We, the family, were deluged with condolences from friends and relatives- the Media made getting the sad news out very easy.
My grief was so overwhelming that for over 5 years afterwards, it was too painful for me to watch my father on television. But the technology was changing so fast that VHS, then CD, then DVD, and now Internet Streaming, coupled with the Sky Box, is bringing every day, TV programmes and Films from the past, into millions and millions of homes around the world, in order to fill their schedules.
It’s now a joy to see my dear old Dad living again, and knowing that every week millions of people enjoy watching his performances around the World - and our family gets royalties from nearly every showing. He’ll still be performing out there in the ether, probably for many decades to come, and certainly long after I’m gone and forgotten.
My Dad loved his gardening, a good activity for a frequently out-of-work actor, waiting for the phone to ring.

✨ DONALD SINCLAIR ✨
The concept for Fawlty Towers was born in the Gleneagles Hotel on Tuesday 12th of May 1971. The Pythons were staying at the Torbay Hotel, whilst filming. The hotelier at that time was a man of infinite rudeness, called Donald Sinclair.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
There was a case of mistaken identity with Eric Idle’s bag. Eric left his bag by the front door of the hotel. When he returned later that day, he couldn’t find it. Eric asked Sinclair if he had seen the missing bag, Sinclair responded that it was over the other side of the garden wall. When questioned why it had been put over the wall, Sinclair explained that they thought it might have been a bomb as they had “had problems with the staff recently” 😂

"Nasty sounding car you got there... Sounds likr you're running low on lube" "Don't worry. There's plenty of that where I'm going!" Jokes jokes jokes innuendos and jokes galore.

I'm not working at the moment, and I'm just barely over the flu. I've a few hospital/dentist/doctor visits scheduled to try figure out why I'm sick all the time and sort a few things out. So I'm also not looking for a job just yet either until I get my health in check. This means a lot of free time and no money to do anything...but...I've just rooted out these to help me for the next week or so....my own personal British comedy invasion. Don't even know where to start with this lot, haven't watched some of them in a long time! #selfcare #gethealthyfinally #britishcomedy #britishcomedyinvasion #fawltytowers #alanpartridge #gimmegimmegimme #blackbooks #montypython #spaced #phoenixnights #3nonblondes #littlebritain
