I’m shocked to say, I was actually impressed by the aging lothario. 71 and his voice is still strong - alright so the hip thrusts were more laughable than sexual and with his arthritic movements he was probably hit by more pairs of discarded knickers than when he was more mobile. He did appear to have a senior moment and vanish part way through one of his songs - I’m still trying to work out if he had to nip off and empty his incontinent pants (which would also account for his Billy Connolly style dance routine) or he just forgot where he was and popped out to make a cup of tea….
Despite my promise to stay away from competative blogging "A Daft Scots Lass" drew me in and even better proved to have wonderful taste and selected my long winded caption.
