Cheeta Cheats Death

Johnny Weissmullers best monkey buddy, Cheeta is alive and well aged 76, spending his retirement painting and eating bananas in Palm Springs California. He has recently published a book revealing all about his battle with alcohol and cigars and other of lifes travails. As they said on the radio last night, he and Elizabeth Taylor are the last of the contract actors from the golden age of Hollywood.

He is almost as old as my Dad, who is also an artist, who got over alcohol and tobacco but way more cool. He has a MySpace.

But will he get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Onya Cheeta, Carry On

Blimey! I thought your dad had a myspace there for a minute. I always wondered how a chimp got called Cheeta.

I think that it would be a dark day in hell before my dad got a MySpace. He is an internet and technology luddite.
