I assume that remark was aimed at me for having the cheek to disagree with your opinion of what a hero really is??
Rather than get in to an argument with someone (who probably thinks it 'heroic' in his world) to call someone an idiot for disagreeing with their view when they're not standing in front of them, but then also doesn't know the difference between 'confidants' and 'confidence' (see previous post)

Maybe you should have read that one back first before posting it too!! :unsure:

Will be 'checking out' as of now instead, so feel free to talk twaddle with one less person around who might have a different view!

ps. this thing has got spell check you know! :)

I'm not at all surprised that Moto Al has resorted to name calling..... he couldn't post an intelligent response on this forum if his life depended on it.

Wish my parents had reached 86 :( James Garner wasn't short changed that's for sure (thumbs) loved the Rockford files & made a point of watching it when i was skiving of School.

Bobby Womack also died recently...does anybody remember him ? Best live performer I ever saw !

I saw that film too. Can't believe I've never seen it before. Was amazed of how they did the onboard race car filming way back then and James Garner could throw that thing about at speed , no green screen used on that movie and so many other faces in the film like Grahame Hill !

the way I commented about your silly post. ,re an 86 man living long enough ,well my father just passed away 3 months ago aged 94, unfortunately I didn't know and couldn't go to his funeral , the reason I couldn't go I was in a coma on a life support machine ,and it feel very bad I never was given the chance to tell him I loved him so much.

Rockford files came to mind first but yep, I remember him as the 'original maverick'.

So referring to JG as "a hero" happens to be quite apt after all then .
