There was a rather sad article in the press this morning about Billy Connolly:

Quote:
Sir Billy Connolly admitted he is "near the end" and life is "slipping away" as he spoke about his life with Parkinson's disease.
The revered comedian was diagnosed with the degenerative neurological condition in 2013 and will appear in the second part of his BBC documentary series Made In Scotland on Friday.

Sir Billy will reflect on his life and career in showbiz while insisting he is not scared of death.
According to the Daily Mirror, he will say: "My life, it's slipping away and I can feel it and I should. I'm 75, I'm near the end.
"I'm a damn sight nearer the end than I am the beginning. But it doesn't frighten me, it's an adventure and it is quite interesting to see myself slipping away.

"As bits slip off and leave me, talents leave and attributes leave. I don't have the balance I used to have, I don't have the energy I used to have.
I can't hear the way I used to hear, I can't see as good as I used to. I can't remember the way I used to remember.
"And they all came one at a time and they just slipped away, thank you. It is like somebody is in charge of you and they are saying 'right, I added all these bits when you were a youth, now it is time to subtract'."
Clive James has been 'near the end' since 2012 and seems to have made quite a good living out of dying.

I wish them both well.

I could listen to Billy Connolly talk forever.

I hear his name, or see him, and always think of 'il Duce' from Boondock Saints.
