    When I was in my twenties, I spent a considerable amount of time jumping up and down in fairly mindless fashion to the excitable rock and roll stylings of a beat combo with the tireless moniker Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine or, for the purposes of the BBC censor, Carter USM.There was no other band quite like Carter There were only two of them, for a start a fellow in shorts and a baseball cap who played the guitar and was called Fruitbat, and another fellow called Jim Bob who also played the guitar and sang.They were backed by a fearsome wall of synths and drums, and came along at the same time at least, in my memory as a bunch of other bands who seemed to make one want to jump up and down a lot in old baseball boots, with one s hat on backwards and cheap lager sloshing around in one s belly They were huge, massive, relentless FUN.What made them different to those other bands, though, was the content of their songs E.M.F sang in abstract terms about someone being unbelievable, Jesus Jones had some hand wavy hippy nonsense about how great it was to be al...

    I must say I really liked the sound of this book, and I m going to be honest I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this book when I started it.Frank Derrick is 81 and is run over by a milk float, causing his arm to break and his foot to fracture He had trouble filling the hours in his day when he was active, but now with his injuries he looks set for long weeks of watching DVD s But then Kelly Christmas the home help breezes into his life like a breath of fresh air, and she reminds him that adventure can come to people of all ages I LOVED Frank Derrick his personality was wonderful and after reading I truly wish he was real and that I knew him in real life I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Frank and being able to read about what he go up to I felt SUCH a range of emotions throughout I laughed with Frank, I enjoyed his adventures and most of all he touched my heart I got very emotional and I even had a few tears because I was really moved by Fra...

    The Extra Ordinary Life of Frank Derrick, Age 81 Quirky funJ.B Morrison, better known as Jim Bob, has written a quirky and fun novel in The Extra Ordinary Life of Frank Derrick, Age 81 Everyone who reads this story will recognise someone in Frank Derrick, me Derek across the road who just happens to be 81 has home help and gets taken to, Lidl, Morrisons and a posh shop at Waitrose yes we have them up north.Frank Derrick is 81 and gets run over by a milk float while out buying a pint of milk so his daughter hires him a care nurse while he recovers Like many widowers he is independent, cannot be bothered with the fussy outside world and certainly does not want or need some nurse bossing him about.Kelly Christmas comes in to his life as his care nurse and a breath of fresh air in his life She is the reason why he goes from looking and acting like Compo to an aging English Don Juan in his West Sussex flat So rather than his life being going to the local shop and visiting Smelly John in his care home, Kelly breathes new life in to him She takes him out to the beach and the big Sainsbury s shows that he can live once again instead of waiting in death s waiting room.As the end of his care sessions near Frank tries to raise the money to keep Kelly on, he tries paw...

    Review also posted on my blog Derrick, as I m sure you can work out from the title of the book, is 81 years old and has just been run over by a milk float Seriously.You would imagine, being 81 and injured, there s probably very little you can do and definitely not enough to warrant a near 300 page novel Yet it s Frank Derrick s attitude to life which brings this book its charm and The Extra Ordinary Life of Frank Derrick, Age 81 is a witty, moving and wonderful story.Frank is an endearingly brilliant character He was a lonely character and I couldn t help but share his joy upon his Monday morning visits from Kelly Christmas, the home help hired by his daughter I loved seeing his relationship grow with Kelly, in particular their visit to the beach and then Frank s exploits when the twelve week period of her visits was coming to an end.His relationships with Smelly John and the other little star of this book, his cat Bill, were also highlights of the novel for me As was virtually every other moment like Frank s regular trips to the charity shop and the nicknames he gave everyone There really wasn t anything to dislike about this book...

    Well, thank the Lord that that is over I don t usually keep reading a book if I m not enjoying it but something told me that there must be an epic ending to this book as it was so utterly uneventful throughout so the reward must be an awesome ending I was wrong very boring and poi...

    When I was offered the chance of a copy of this book to read and review I ummed and ahhed at first From the write up it sounds a touch ridiculous a bit OTT I love gentle humour but I can t stand farce.However, when I read through a few reviews from people whose judgement I trust and whose tastes I know are similar to mine I thought let s give it go then and I m SO very glad I did, I loved it.Frank Derrick is a very ordinary elderly man, living an ordinary life in an ordinary seaside town He lives alone since his wife died and extra ordinary things just seem to happen to him leaving him even worse off, the accident with a milk float which leaves him unable to manage the simplest everyday tasks in his ordinary life is just typical, he seems to attract the ridiculous and even in this unfortunate accident his dignity is shattered.He could be a real grumpy old man as he has few friends and a dislike of most members of the public he meets calling his neighbours in secret by amusing native American nicknames, but he is really quite utterly charming His best friend Smelly John the infirm ex punk rocker and his cat Bill are really his only companions apart from the steady stream of cold callers and salespeople trying to rip hi...

    A fun and very easy read With a story that can also make you think What must it be like to be elderly and lonely So If you have an elderly neighbour, make 5 mins and pop and say hello to them.The book kicks off with Frank getting run over by a milk float, this in itself really tickled me, not that he got run over but the fact it was a milk float Frank is such a likeable character And some of his antics and thoughts are brilliantly funny i m concerned with saying too much here...

    A first floor flat with possibly the only steps in the village Tinned spaghetti, junk mail, cold callers, charity shop pens and a cat called Bill Those are the things that make up Frank s life He does venture out to Fullwind Food Wine, where he stocks up on spaghetti and cat food, the local charity shop to add to his collection of china animals and DVDs, and on the bus to the big Sainsburys Frank never actually gets as far as Sainsburys though, he gets off at Greyflick House and visits his friend ex punk and star of the picture postcard Smelly John.Frank is a widower, his wife Sheila died some time ago His only daughter, Beth, lives in America with her husband and daughter Frank s days are long, starting when he hears the first plane of the morning fly over the village, and ending as darkness falls again Frank doesn t do much during the day, although he makes sure that he know what the date is.A nasty incident with a milk float leaves Frank in need of a little extra care Despite his determination that no Robin Williams in a dress is going...

    Review originally posted to my blog QA with the author Derrick is 81 years old when he is run over by a milk float and ends up in hospital with a broken arm and fractured foot His daughter, who lives all the way in America, worries that he won t be able to take proper care of himself when going home and so she hires him a temporary help Initially he is reluctant at the thought of frequent visits from a stern carer but that is before Christmas arrives, Kelly Christmas that is.Kelly brings a breath of fresh air into Frank s house and life, broadening his horizons beyond feeding his cat Bill, making a trip down to the local charity shop and visiting his friend Smelly John he even gets to go to the big supermarket As the weeks pass by, Frank finds himself looking forward to Kelly s visits than anything else and so he tries to stretch his limited pensioner s funds in creative ways in the hopes that he can pay for Kelly to continue coming over.I love the current trend of books focusing on an elder generation and showing that when you hit 70 or 81 in this case life most certainly isn t over I may not have read novels such as The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out...
