Ex England football manager Sven Goran Erikkson and I have one thing in common. We are both 66. There the similarities end.

Harry the blogger

Harry the blogger

He is a multi-millionaire. I am not.

He has a fine head of hair. I do not.

He is slim. I frequently but sensibly diet.

He is tall. I am not.

He is paid millions to be a failure in his job. I am a pensioner.

He cruises the world first class. I have an inside cabin.

He has a glamorous model girl friend half his age. I sleep with a pensioner.

He continuously has to prove himself. I am content.

He has to keep himself trim to maintain his image. I walk everywhere, loving it.

He doesn’t eat ice cream as it’s fattening. I love a 99.

He flits from woman to woman. I have a fantastic wife of 41 years.

Has he had Botox? I laugh a lot.

He has money. I don’t care about money as long as I have sufficient.

He is always after the next deal. So what?

He never seems content with his life. I am.

About Harry Pope

Very few writers earn more than £10,000 annually. Harry is one of the poorer ones. He is no longer middle-aged, as he knows no-one who is getting on for 140. Literary success has come with an attempt at maturity – failed both – but marital stability with Pam has more than compensated. He is an accomplished speaker, talking on a variety of topics, including how not to run a hotel, buried secrets, and what’s it worth. See Harry The Talker. He has five published books, see Harry The Writer. He is Eastbourne’s only licensed sight-seeing guide see Harry The Walker. He has a daily blog see Harry The Blogger. The only site not purchased is but that might come, who knows. He was a London funeral director for many years, then started Cheam Limousines in 1990, selling some thirteen years later. Arriving in Eastbourne in the Summer of 2003, Harry and Pam first bought a small guest house, then a large hotel, which proved to be disastrous because of their business partnership with a moron from California. He now walks, and talks, sometimes both at the same time.
