A sunny Saturday, and a cheery butcher persuaded me to buy a whole leg of lamb, of which my sweet one has never been very fond. Later there would be more Heston, on a C-SPAN show for Hemingway’s 100 years. It was 1999 and you could notice a few early signs of the implacable onset of Alzheimer’s and yet, what a sublime memory he possessed! He recited Shakespeare and so many lines of Robert Browning with such fluency… truly amazing.
