A super fan and possibly George's oldest fan. That is so sweet. I'm assuming that was taken here in the states since the hashtag is sunrise senior living which is a well known U.S. based senior assisted living facility.

I stand corrected.  I wonder if this is the same Sunrise owned group as we have in the states PAN?  If so I didn't know they were international.  And yep definitely lovely.  Must have made her day!

That's really nice of George.

Does anybody know if Instagram changed anything about their restrictons?
Because I used to click on George's​ name and was able to see all pics with his hashtag on Instagram, and now I'm not. By the way: I'm not on Instagram, that's why I ask.

Me neither, Carol.  Wouldn't know how to upload a photo! Never had a problem tho unless people were updating. It must depend on who's running the page I guess....

Sunrise UK lists the US and Canada too on their website, Donnamarie, so no doubt they are.......looks like really nice place. The girls who work there are now posting on there that the lady concerned had better tell him next time to let her know in advance so that they can all be there!

I think I just saw George, my George, as I remember him in Venice.....I think my heart just stopped and I think I saw a glimpse of him......

Maybe he's on his way back.....

But then I think....he is looking at the camera, smiling at a camera.......So maybe not.......

I'm just trying to find a way to convince George to meet me when I'll be in the Berkshire / Oxfordshire area in July. Would he believe that I'm 95?
No, I guess there will be no chance for me, he'll be busy with his newborn babies... headbang

Anyway, I think it was a lovely gesture of our man.

Sevens you ARE joking, aren't you?

Carol, maybe you can pick up a couple of bottles when you are in the U.K. this summer. They must be selling it somewhere. I wonder if the local pub in Sonning carries it now that George is living there? Q Drink 3

Sevens, I'm half as old. I just thought since in many articles this lady is called'his eldest fan , I could claim I'm older than her...

Donna,
I don't think I'll have the time to go to Sonning. But I just checked at Selfridges where they sell it, and we'll be in London. So probably I'll be able to go there (I haven't been to Oxford Street for ages, used to love it when an was young since everything you bought there became fashion here at least one year later).

But I just found out that it's actually possible to order it via Amazon, so I'll see. I'm just not sure which one I should try first...

[size=46]EXCLUSIVE: George Clooney’s 87-Year-Old Superfan Reacts to Actor’s Surprise Nursing Home Visit

Best. Birthday. Ever. 

Pat Adams got the surprise of a lifetime on Sunday, when George Clooney walked into her Sunrise of Sonning Retirement and Assisted Living Facility to wish her a Happy 87th Birthday. 

Employee Linda Jones never expected to answer the door of the nursing home for an Oscar winner. 

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw George walking across the car park,” Jones told ET. “Just one guy came with him, very low key. Just rang the bell and I answered and just asked if George could come in and visit Pat…[He was] absolutely gorgeous! Absolutely lovely, very good looking!”

Clooney came equipped with a bouquet and a signed card for the birthday girl.

“Well, I just thought, ‘Ooo, is it really George Clooney?’ And anyway it was. And he is a charming man, just a very nice man,” Adams told ET. “He’s a lovely man and he does a lot of good. I’ve such a hectic day. It’s all been wonderful, believe you me!” 

The 87-year-old had been asking to meet her idol for a while and her dream came true, thanks to the home’s Wish Upon a Star initiative. Even though the actor and humanitarian clearly received the letter, no one knew he’d be stopping by. 

“We had no idea he was coming in that day,” Jones said. “I knew Sunrise had written to George Clooney several times on behalf of Pat because it had been her lifelong ambition to meet him. So we were always hoping every day he would pop in, especially Pat, and then he surprised us all.”

Clooney and his wife, Amal, have a home in local Sonning, but he is “by far” the biggest name to walk through the facility’s doors. He visited with Adams for about 15 minutes. 

“Well, he shook me by the hand and said, ‘Did I like it here?’ and I said, ‘Oh yes, I love it. I’m very happy. Everybody’s very nice.’ You know, he’s just very, very nice,” Adams told ET.

Adams also heard the exciting news that the actor is about to become a first-time father of twins. 

“I think he’ll make a very good father. And I wish him joy. And I just hope it all goes well for him because he’s such a nice man,” she said. 

As for what could top this year’s birthday surprise, Adams still has high hopes. 

“I don’t think it’s going to be quite as exciting as this,” she admitted. “But I still love it here and I’ve got friends here, so all in all it will be very nice again. Who knows, he might come in again, you never can tell!”
