May the cheese always be cracking


The announcement today that Peter Sallis has died at the age of 96 finally rings down the curtain on the Last of the Summer Wine era. None are left now of that immortal trio of Foggy, Cleggy and Compo (with respect to the late gone Michael Bates as unforgotten Cyril Blamire).

And there can never be any Wallace and Grommit again, for no-one else could voice that sterling little inventor.

That we had such marvels for so long should be what we marvel at.  So long, and thanks for all the joy.
