It seems Harry and Meghan have been nominated for an Emmy which is an American award which is bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in recognition of excellence.
Now, one knows the Americans can sometimes be a little loud and a trifle brash, perhaps even a tad naïve, after all 72 million of them voted for Mr Trump and many still believe he is the best thing since sliced bread, with subtlety and class not being known as one of their finer points.
So it’s no wonder that they have nominated Harry and Meghan for an interview with Oprah Winfrey, most of which was later found to be full of exaggeration, fantasy and down right lies, although even more bizarre is the fact they are nominated in the non fiction category.
In times gone by I would have offered to eat my hat if this rubbish actually won an award, however in these modern times I am not willing to risk indigestion and the loss of one of my hats, as I’m afraid the Oprah interview is the sort of rubbish which may be right up the American’s street, let’s hope not as it will only encourage them to do more!
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 Amazon.co.uk 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. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1

Pity. I have a great recipe for stewed hat!
How bloody stupid 👹
Yes, it does seem a little ridiculous to say the least.
I almost got myself into an argument with my hairdresser over that dreadful interview. My hsirdresser was singing the praises of the three of them and was outraged when I disagreed and gave her my opinion.
The interview was an absolute farce and to have it nominated for an Emmy is absolutely ridiculous, especially in the non fiction category.
