There's Richard and Rodney chewing on the recent events of the world making crack ups and jokes on what has happened since Rodney left us,
they have no pain, don't have to worry about money, what to wear, who to see or not, incredible mobility and they just are.
Richard will be sadly missed, just think of the adventure he's on now though, ye ha, riding the clouds, zipping in and out of peoples lives, watching, listening ,wow he would have alot of good joke material from folks there in Hollywood, he could zip through the walls, he would really be as "if only the walls could talk" and I bet he would.
As you can see I have a great imagination.
Great Comedian, and still is.

It'll be a sad and poignant Xmas this year..................

but one thing that i'm really in awe of, is the charity work Richard devoted himself too........despite his illness..........together with his wife they devoted themselves to animal charities, and that says a lot about his spirit and capacity for kindness and hope...........respect.
