I am bewildered as to why this word has been chosen as it was only five days ago we had the word puzzled.

Due to the fact that I am starting to blog later than usual and I have to leave early to go to a meeting of the Bentley Drivers Club I an going to attempt to leave you with an image from the 1957 film, Pal Joey and why you may well ask would I do that?

The answer is simple, I always tend to start my blog with the first thing that came into my head which on this occasion was the song, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, sung in the film by Rita Hayworth.

Frank Sinatra gave top billing to Hayworth and said of the poster being between the two ladies; “That’s a sandwich I don’t mind being stuck in the middle of.”

I have no idea whether the image will appear but as I’m running a little late I’m just going to press publish and hope for the best and for the benefit of the health and safety people I will add a caveat.

This poster art copyright is believed to belong to the distributor of the film, Columbia Pictures, the publisher of the film or the graphic artist.

Hopefully as I copied the last phrase from the source of the poster, the last disclaimer will prevent me from being arrested for copying the image. Prison is not the place for me, after all look what a detrimental effect it had on Oscar Wilde.


About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.
