#1LinerWeds from Julian Lennon

Julian Lennon is the son of John Lennon and his first wife, Cynthia. The father-son relationship was a difficult one, though it got better in the mid-’70’s, not long before John was murdered. After his father’s death, Julian began collecting Beatles memorabilia, and made the comment above.


One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now here’s a word about Certs. It’s a candy mint! It’s a breath mint! It’s two! (clap) Two! (clap) Two mints in one!

I know I’ve used it before, but it’s been a while…

  1. I remember how bitter Julian was regarding his dad. I hope he has mellowed and it is sad that he is buying things back that was his dad’s

    1. I think they worked things out between them when Julian was in his teens, but there was clearly a lot of hurt there. Interesting, though, that Julian and his half-brother Sean are close. (Of course, I’m close to my half-brother, too, and there’s a much greater difference in our ages.)

  2. Hi John – yes interesting to think … it may happen to many of us – it hasn’t to me … but I know others who’ve ‘rescued’ things their parents had. But his comment tells his truth and I’m glad he wanted to. Cheers Hilary

    1. Julian’s relationship with his father was a difficult one. Even so, I can understand him wanting to have some things from that era, especially when you consider that he was a spectator for a lot of it.

    1. I’ve been to New York a few times, but never to Central Park. I’d always heard that it wasn’t a safe place after dark, and even if it isn’t, I didn’t want to take a chance. Had I gone during late spring or summer, when the sun was out later, I might have gone. I’ve seen pictures, and it seems like a beautiful place.

      1. We’ve been three times in the middle of the day. I would not go there at night. Safe or not. It is just so big and we got lost in it quite often. I’d have to know my way around more.

  3. Sad irony indeed.

    I had a near addiction to fruit flavored Certs. Have not bought the. In ages, WAIT. Do they even exist anymore?

    1. I looked online, and Amazon still lists them, but they seem to be “out of stock.” A couple of classic candy places also had them listed and were also out of stock. I think they’ve become permanently out of stock.
