ZEE CHAMPAGNE  CHEERS

A champagne toast to all you readers. (Photo by Barclay Shaw in Las Vegas 1982)

 

Zee  Hush, Hush 1980

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, 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 abit 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.

ERIC IN TIANANMEN SQUARE FREEZING MY BALLS OFF!

November 2010  Tiananmen Square, Beijing. Freezing my “Balls Off” it was so cold!

By The Grand Canal, Venice, 2011 (The hair’s gone, it vanished, just like that !)

VENICE  PRINT 1.

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”

C 006

     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!

    Hey Eric, I Hope you are keeping well, its absolutly fantastic to see your site and life documented. I better tell you who I am I suppose,!!! Nigel from Bridlington, I worked with you at the Palladium and in the town…I often wondered how you were doing and of course the lovely Ray RIP. Sad to read of his passing. I recently had contact with Steve Londino who as you know was one of the boys,!. he is a tour guide now on cruises. Nigel Court and Angie I wonder where they are…..Sorry about Scorpio too, you must have been so upset..I hope you are keeping well and have a happy retirement, x

    My dear Eric. Some of my happiest memories are of working for you, darling Ray and Mr Gold (I would never have dared use his first name!). Such wonderful, innocent days in Denman St. with Sadie, Rital, Tilly, Sidsel and Ruger, Gladys Shock and all those charming ladies. Love to you. Bob Mills
