There's no fool like an old fool.

On the other hand, God loves a trier.  Twisted Evil

"Ron Sheppard truly believed he had found his “forever wife” when he met Cristel Lalec after eight failed marriages.
But the 69-year-old’s hopes of a lasting romance were dashed when she ran off with another man before he could tie the knot."

Looking for Thai brides (No 7 and No 8 were called Wan and Weng) isn't really a good way to find true love.

I think the writing was on the wall for (almost) No 9 wife when he noticed...

“She hated my Norman Wisdom impressions, she had no idea who he was. She’d just sit there with her earphones in taking selfies and I’d have to shout her name just to get her to look at me.”

Stupid stupid cow.
Dumping her 9 children and taking up with a man who will use her then leave her, she deserves everything she gets.

The woman in the other link is even worse than the man in the OP.
My own dad left  (ran off with his fancy piece) when I was 5....he never came back to see me or my sister who was a couple of years older, even though he didn't live that far away.
He was a respected member of the community, held down a good job in the police force, was a loving husband and father ...then he just pissed off and didn't look back.

He tried to see me many years later, I couldn't be bothered...I hope this womans kids get by fine without her and pay her back in kind one day.

Selfish is about right

i know there are many valid reasons for couples breaking up but also many couples will up and leave their partner because they're bored, romance worn off, grass is greener over yonder, etc etc rather than actually work at the relationship

that's bad enough but how any human being, father or mother can walk away from their children is completely beyond me

These Filipino girls just want money for their families and a visa. This old man was stupid didn't he wonder what a young girl would see in him, seriously.

That mum who buggered off to her boyfriend in Ghana, who she met on internet, wait til he gets a visa, she won't see his arse for dust.

These people get what they deserve tbh, bloody idiots.

“As far as I’m concerned I’m back on the market.“ I’m not going to say I haven’t already had women contacting me, I don’t know what it is about me, women just seem to flock to me.

“I’m batting them off. I think it could be my natural charm and charisma. I am great at ­impressions, I can do 54 different people like Norman Wisdom and Frank Spencer.''


WOW!  How could she possible have left him

My mum made up for it, she was all the parent we needed.Smile

Its really nice to see other dads who are obviously loved and respected though....it must be a great relationship to have. I love you

To hear of a woman who puts herself before her kids is somehow sadder....especially when she has nine of them.

Idea

I reckon they're usually mostly "selfish and despicable" even before they become adulterers...

(And often reasonably good actors, at hiding their true natures -- though not always, as I've also seen serial offenders who were known lowlifes and scumbags, who still manage to have potential victims hanging off them -- no matter how many times they re-offend..).

There is a huge difference in adulterers and parents who abandon their kids.

I think most people can understand that somtimes love dies and people move on to different partners ...but once a parent always a parent.
I don't know how the love for a child can ever disappear in the same way.

No I don't get that either Syl.

She has 9 kids, and sodded them all off.

When this new man vanishes she will crawl back to her kids and/or her husband., I hope they turn their backs on her as she has them.

Well that would be exactly what she deserves.

Three of the children are not even her husbands, she already had them from a previous relationship.

Mind you, anyone selfish enough to have 9 kids in this day and age cant really be expected to act in a decent way imo.

Also sorry got to say he's hardly a puller of girls is he, what really makes him think girls fancy him for him, he's an idiot.

that's nice to know syl x

i find it even harder to understand a woman walking away from her children than a man
i find it more stomach churning when a child is abused by a woman than a man

no idea why

as for this particular woman with her 9 kids

you can be sure the Jeremy Kyle production team have them firmly in their sights for future episodes

It does seem worse when a woman acts like this...possibly because women are seen as the nurturers, and when they dont its even more shocking.

When my OH worked from the airport Norman Wisdom would come out of the terminal to get in a cab, he would do his falling over act, being really daft, just to entertain all the cabbies.
He did it every time,  they all loved him and he loved making them all laugh, he seemed to be a lovely man.

I think his last few years was spent in a nursing home in the Isle of Man.

The first 4 or 5 failed marriages - that's nature's way of telling you  you're simply not cut out for it, dude.

Would a vibrant, nubile young lass fall for a crusty old catarrhal fool??

Behave!

When my OH worked from the airport Norman Wisdom would come out of the terminal to get in a cab, he would do his falling over act, being really daft, just to entertain all the cabbies.
He did it every time,  they all loved him and he loved making them all laugh, he seemed to be a lovely man.

I think his last few years was spent in a nursing home in the Isle of Man.

My late brother-in-law was a great friend of Norman Wisdom and I met him several times. Great guy and an absolute master of the comedy "pratfall."

He was still doing that fall in his 80,s to make people laugh...he was very talented and well loved.

Did he die? I never knew he was dead.

He died 7 years ago aged 95 (i just googled) so he lived till a ripe old age.

He most certainly was. I look at some of today's stand-up so-called comics who expect to walk onto the stage in front of an audience of carefully selected and vetted "celebs", say "fuck off" and get rapturous applause...and I think to myself that people like Hancock, Wisdom, Howerd and Williams must be spinning in their graves.

There are some good comedians around, funny people will always be funny, but not many steal the heart like he did imo.Ken Dodd does pathos very well too.
Stand up always seems a bit too staged for my taste, i think John Bishop is good though....but he does swear a fair bit. Laughing

Morecombe and Wise were great too.
The breakfast sketch to the stripper tune was brilliant.

Ronnie Barker used to have an antique shop in Chipping Norton. I bought an old Kodak camera from him once. Mean bugger wouldn't give me a discount for saying that I thought he was brilliant!

to be fair though, if he gave discounts to everyone who said they thought he was brilliant he wouldn't have much of a business there

knowing me i would go in there see him and just think ''hmmm he reminds me of someone but i cant think who'' then wander off again puzzling about it for ages
