STILL A STAR, BABS

Scottish Daily Mail - - Platell’s People -

NOW in the ad­vanced stages of Alzheimer’s, Dame Bar­bara Wind­sor made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at the West End show 42nd Street to cel­e­brate her friend Bon­nie Lang­ford’s per­for­mance.

The trouper got a stand­ing ova­tion when she ap­peared in the Royal Box and later, when the crowds had gone, she even tap­danced on stage. Th­ese will be pre­cious mem­o­ries for her hus­band Scott Mitchell.

There will come a time, as with my own mother strug­gling with the ter­ri­ble dis­ease, when even one co­her­ent word is pre­cious.

In the words of a song from 42nd Street: ‘When it’s rain­ing cats and dogs, think how swell it is for frogs. Ev­ery sit­u­a­tion has a sunny side.’
