When Phyllis and Robert Met:Robert and Phyllis met in 1985. He was seventy-five and she was sixty-eight and although Phyllis thought they were from "totally different worlds" she thought they complemented each other "perfectly."
Phyllis: "An Anglophile and an authority on Winston Churchill, Bob Hastings was the most fabulous gentleman; a refinded, immaculately dressed bon viveur who knocked me out from the moment we first set eyes on each other at his home in Pasadena, a few miles northeast of Los Angeles."
