GUEST, Tom Bliss Obit: Blake Edwards 1922-2010 (m. Julie Andrews) (20) RE: Obit: Julie Andrews husband Blake Edwards RIP 16 Dec 10

Poor old Julie.

I think of her as a friend though we never really met properly. She used to live just round the corner from us in Alderney and we used to see her in the corner shop. Both me (aged 9) and my Dad were smitten. (Not sure if Blake ever visited - this may have been just before they met).

She bought the house after being told about the island by Tim (TH) White, when he guested on her TV show, to talk about a musical that was being made from his book 'The Once and Future King" (they called it 'Camelot').

Her story (I believe): Tim was a huge man with flowing white mane and beard. One day some Jehovah's Witnesses visited the island and knocked on Tim's door. What do you want? He growled.

We're Jehovah's Witnesses, they ventured.

Tim breaks into a massive beaming smile and spreads his arms wide.

Splendid! He booms. I'm Jehovah! How are we doing?
