Am I the only one ...?

Name anything(s) you have done that you sense maybe nobody else has ever has.

Got Art Garfunkel's autograph, proclaiming how I'd raised a lovely daughter. She also showed him what Google is, as he was amazed how she managed to print a picture of him.

They spent the evening chatting by a log fire at the four-star hotel where she worked

There are people in the first world who don't know this? He must be the only one.

Like that a lot, Tass.

I'd forgotten about Dorry, he was a strange one.

He's a bit of a technophobe. He arrived at her hotel in France after doing a gig in Geneva, hiring a car, refusing to use GPS, and ending up lost. They spent most of the evening discussing how modern stuff was rubbish. That and him telling her he and Paul Simon still chat regularly on the phone, discussing songs and how to arrange them.

9/46 references on JtT to Art Garfunkel are Tasselhoff re-telling that anecdote his daughter.

10/47 now.

I'm rather proud. The Sean Connery one is my personal best and I've probably told that one as many times.

Shadders is just jealous because he hasn't got such great anecdotes

Moschops - 06 Aug 2020 12:37:30 (#41 of 106)

I'm probably the only person on here that has given a very drunk Robin Day a lift to the station while he tried to cop off with a woman in the back of the car.

I'm not allowed to tell the greyhound one any more.

'That and him telling her he and Paul Simon still chat regularly on the phone, discussing songs and how to arrange them.'

But they've been slagging each other off for years, so much so that when I typed their names into Google to verify I hadn't imagined it, it suggested 'Simon & Garfunkel feud' to me.

He said that was a load of old cobblers invented by the media.

Moschops - 06 Aug 2020 12:39:30 (#45 of 106)

They just do that for the record sales

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Aug 2020 12:39:33 (#46 of 106)

Chatted to Delia Derbyshire about all her achievements, while at working at a temp job in a bank

Been in a taxi with Edwina Currie who, without prompting, handed over a signed photo of herself from a bundle she carried with her.

wickeltisch - 06 Aug 2020 12:40:51 (#48 of 106)

I'm probably the only person on here who doesn't know who Robin Day is.

Travelled on the top of a bus from Jalalabad to Kabul.

And very cold it was.

wickeltisch - 06 Aug 2020 12:43:23 (#50 of 106)

I'm probably the only one on here who was in the DDR the day the Berlin Wall was built.

Unfortunately I was not the only one at all.
