Before I embark on telling the story of my recent Italian job, I thought I would share this little story with you. I don’t know if its true, but to be honest, who gives a toss.

Apparently, a CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time. So she went to see him and find out abit more about him.

When she got to the Western Wall there he was, walking slowly with a walking stick up to the holy site.

She watched him pray for about 45 minutes and then he turned to leave moving very slowly.

She approached him for an interview.

“Excuse me, sir, I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your name?

“Morris Fishbone,” he replied.

“How long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?”

“For about 60 years.”

“60 years! That’s amazing, what do you pray for?”

“I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and Muslims. I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop. I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults, and to love their fellow man.”

“How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?”

“Like I’m talking to a fucking wall.”
