the house in tebworth he was living at before he died looks expensive, so its either claire hardings ,or jacks got back on his feet, why he would live there is beyond me, especially since he traveeled to the us alot. if he wanted something a biit quierter, why didnt he move to surry, wouldnt be much price difference?, i was there last week, so jack either drove, or took the bus and train, very tireing.

looking at his life, and his photos, you have to wonder if he was happy at all.they say he lost his fortune because of his heath issues, i say no.his family sponged enough of it with cars and houses, he said that himself.why did his brother arthur die in 2000, he was only a year older then him?everyone involved in his professtional side as well contributed to his downful, june collins, personal, and business managers, even the croffs, the puppeteers off pufnstuf. you cant tell me nobody new.
