This is the day Scotland elected to remain in the UK.
While doing my volunteer job at the Hardesty Library, I came across 4 DVDs of the British spy-fi series,The Prisoner (1967), starring series creator, Patrick McGoohan, and checked them out. I’ve been looking for them.
McGoohan was born in the US, but soon thereafter, his family returned to their home in the Border Region of Ireland. Seven years after that, they moved to Sheffield, England.
I have corresponded online in the last year with a British helicopter pilot who did some of the second unit work on The Prisoner. He also worked on the 007 film, You Only Live Twice, specifically, landing inside the fake volcanic cone that served as the villain’s HQ, which he said was pretty hairy. (He had been something of a real-life 007 himself, serving On Her Majesty’s Royal Navy in the Special Boat Service, the special forces unit.)
My other volunteer job today was stuffing envelopes for KWGS’ upcoming pledge drive. I understand the concept of a quilting bee now. Keep your hands busy with a task, and conversation flows freely. A very “radio” mode of communication.
Left-handedness was one topic touched upon. My brother Alan is a left-handed bassist. I realized I had something in common with one of the other regular volunteers. He also has a close relative, a cousin, who is a left-handed bassist.
The volunteer’s last name is McCartney, and he is from Liverpool.
Be seeing you.
