Ha! Ha! Patrick very good,really made us laugh. Retirement is very good and I am beginning to realise there is life after work. I miss the general chat and camaraderie of the office but not the deadlines and long days. Hope to see you both soon. Love to Nina.

Hello Joan, wonderful to hear from you.It was a real treat for Nina to have visited the BBC last year with you and discovered where all her favorite shows got made.I hope john is doing all right and I'm sure Christopher is taller than me by now.
Love to you all.
Patrick and Nina

Patrick, you have captured Joan in cartoon in an amazing way! Joan is the wonderful kind person who puts everyone first and never herself, she deserves this attention and profile. Your work is incredible and its been so good to view the website.

I have known the same Joan for 40+
years she was a pillar of the BBC
and is of society a very lovely
person, but enough praise, she has her faults like the rest of us and
I should know, she is my sister-in-law.

Thanks so much Margaret and Geraldine. You've got me blushing with your lovely comments. We won't mention the faults Margaret - people might stop loving me, although human I definitely am faults and all. I can only be myself. Thanks everyone I feel honoured indeed.

C'est des "Sliththeens" et les tetes de mouche sont des "Tritovores".Est-ce qu'il ont jamais passe les episodes du docteur Who a la television francaise?.Cette serie c'est un peut comme la"marmite"
je pense qu'il faut avoir grandi avec pour totalement apprecier.

Man, cheers to your friend and all that, I am sure she is a lovely lady. Retirement is the greatest of rewards one can achieve and may she enjoy it in good health and for many years.
But your rendition of that fly is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life. Ever.

Cheers to your amazing skill,

Kind regards,

Milenko
