Postman To A Spoon-Bender

Burghley road SW19 backs onto The All England Club, home of Wimbledon Tennis. For many years I used to live close by, and the local greengrocer told me, rumour had it, celebrity spoon-bender Uri Geller was renting this pile (to run a workshop on psychology in tennis), and that he was going to bend a Wilson aluminium T-2000 tennis racket (as made famous by Jimmy Connors) using the power of thought. So I thought I’d bend Uri Geller’s lamppost. I was postman to a spoon-bender. Uri Geller: Helen Keller, even she would have seen the irony.
