⭐ In case you're interested, Ian had a hit with a song called 'Reasons To Be Cheerful' back in '79! It was very funny!

That was definitely not a reason to be cheerful!!

I missed Ian's housewarming party! 😤 That would have been back in 1982.

Could polio have affected his growth during his childhood?

Yeah it may have done
