Back home. May just goof off today.

I’m back to catch up with house stuff here. I was trying to help family the best I could, often feeling helpless in doing so. But that’s just part of life. We all have those times. I just got back to be alone with the cats for the next ten or so days.

Terry Jones, Co-Founder of Monty Python, Dies at 77

Terry Jones, co-founder of Monty Python, died Wednesday. Jones died after a long struggle with dementia. He was 77 years old.

Jones was instrumental in creating the wacky, absurdist style of comedy that Monty Python made famous in the 1970s and directed two of the English comedy group’s most successful films, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “Monty Python’s Life of Brian.” In the latter, Jones played Mandy Cohen, mother of the titular Brian, and appeared before a crowd to deliver probably his most famous line in a comically squawky voice, “He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!”
