Happiness ... and sadness

In the mid-1960s, while my friends were probably buying Rolling Stones' records, some of my few six-and-eightpences were spent on Ken Dodd singles. OK, not "Happiness" - that was a much wanted, much loved crimbo prezzie from my brother, Xmas 1965, a few months after we'd seen Doddy live at the London Palladium.

Number cruncning: I read today that he married his live-in partner on Friday, two days before he died. Mr PP was in hospital for the whole of their married life!

RIP Sir Ken Dodd.
