RIP Arnold Palmer

Published: Monday, September 26, 2016

Arnold Palmer, one of the greatest professional golfers ever, has died.  His obituary carries a number of his quotations but the one I have heard attributed to him and used occasionally wasn’t mentioned. He supposedly said,

”It’s funny, the more I practise, the luckier I seem to be.”

On the subject of deceased celebrities, I see that the BBC is planning to celebrate the life of the late Terry Wogan. 

The [Glasgow] Herald Diary last week recounted how Sir Terry cultivated a band of followers known as TOGs which stood for “Terry’s Old Geezers (and Gals).”  Although not usually stuck for words, Terry was rendered speechless after reading out a letter from a TOG whose surname was Hucker and Christian name was Rudolph. 

I wonder if he is any relation to Sir Hugh Janus...
