Death Anniversary Thread

CUT THE MUSIC

 

Today in 1999, "Ravishing" Rick Rude died, possibly from complications after injecting [a popular drug for enhanced erections blocked by the spam filters] directly into his dick.

On the Sunday following his death I plucked up the courage to tell my parents that my future wife was pregnant and that the wedding organised for September would need re-organised sharpish.

A Benny Hill tribute was on the TV when I broke the news - my dad didn't even flinch and his gaze remained fixed on the TV. 

 

I've never talked to him about why he reacted (or didn't react) the way he did but at end of June this year it will be our silver wedding anniversary and our twin daughters will be 25 in November.

 

I had forgotten about the above until I saw this so thanks to The Undertaker. I might ring my dad and ask him tonight.

Thanks to the new page, there was me thinking: "Man, your dad must have really loved Rick Rude..."

He did leave us with this, though appropriately enough.

Congrats. I will also be celebrating my Silver Wedding anniversary this year.

Probably not that big a deal if you were getting married already.

With hindsight probably not - but it felt a big deal at the time.

Well, obviously it was to you!  But from the point of view of parents, it would have caused much more consternation 25 years earlier.  

 

Interestingly, in earlier times it was usual to wait until the girl was pregnant before making wedding plans!  People needed to have children to support them in old age (no pensions or benefits) so couples wanted to make sure they were capable of having children together.

The Doves cried when the party was over, and Prince was out of time one year ago today.

Roger Troutman had significantly less bounce to the ounce today in 1999, when his brother and fellow Zapp bandmember Larry shot him in the torso several times before committing suicide.

Sadly I don't think it looks like they're going to ever solve Jill's murder.

Does Gerry McCann have an alibi?

Yes. He wasn't living on an estate.
