About my life, the ups and downs, the tears and laughter, which makes it all so worthwhile.

My name is Eric Lindsay and I was born in 1929, the year of the great depression, so I am really old!
I can never say that my life was not interesting.
(Here is a quote that I think is very apropos of my life:)
“Only the person who has experienced light and darkness, war and peace, rise and fall, happiness and pain, only that person has truly experienced life.”
Stefan Sweig November 28, 1881 – February 22, 1942
Playing Liberace’s Mirrored Piano at his Las Vegas home during one of his dinner parties 1982.
I was an only child and very sickly up to the age of 7. So my early schooling just didn’t happen and it was left to my Mother to teach me to read and write.
About my blog, I will try to tell various stories of what happened during my life. Don’t ask me about the present! I can’t even remember what I had for dinner last night, but if you want to know about the dinners I had with Liberace, Danny La Rue, and even when I had afternoon tea with Mae West etc. etc., that I will tell you. Oh well! Maybe I will talk a bit about the present day.
Yes! I will definitely do that, as I’ve just recently returned from New York, and Oh! it brought back so many, many memories..
I hope that you will enjoy my little Blog.
November 2010 Tiananmen Square, Beijing. Freezing my “Balls Off” it was so cold!
On the Great Wall of China with 2 Soldiers, so there were 3 sets of ‘Frozen Balls’! The poor buggers had to stand to attention without moving for an hour, and they were on camera the whole time.
By The Grand Canal, Venice, 2011 (The hair’s gone, it vanished, just like that !)
Venice has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. But the Graffiti on the buildings is disgusting! I did my leg in walking around Venice for about 6 hours. Finished up with what I call my “Venice Leg”!
Bali, July 2012. Just fallen down a pothole in the road and done my leg in again and my hand. Now I’ve got the ‘Venice Leg’ and the ‘Bali Finger’! C’est la vie! I think I’ll soon be ready for the “knackers yard”
Thailand September 2013 and it is now 3 months since I had a Hip Replacement Operation.
The miracle is, the pain from my ‘Venice Leg’ has gone! The ‘Bali Finger’ is still with me.
When I say pain, I really mean ‘PAIN’, I was a cripple! It was getting so bad, that I found it quite impossible to walk.
I was popping pain killers as though they were sweets.
I now have this strange ‘thing’ inside my hip and leg with a long spike and a ball socket and a ‘screw’ ( I should be so lucky )
You know, I find it quite amazing, what the wonders of modern day medicine can do to put back a little spring in ones step. Lucky me!
Birthday time in Thailand 13-11-2013
Did I have something to shout about?
Outside the Radio City Music Hall with my beloved Angie in New York for the TONY’S 7th.June 2015.
N.B. I couldn’t change the date on my camera, didn’t know how. Since then I have learn’t how to do it. Providing I don’t forget again, which is every possibility!
My birthday time again in Siem Reap, Cambodia 2016. Having dinner with friends in the Genevieve Restaurant. I’m 87, never ever thought I’d be lasting this long.
My 88th. Birthday, again in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The Hat and the Glasses are covering a multitude of sins. On a good day I only look 87! I truly cannot believe that I’m still here!
Same time-slot, without the Hat and Glasses, instead I’ve discovered Hoodies, Alexander McQueen, and all things Gothic. I’ve got Skulls everywhere!
