The first is the acquisitions' officer at the Imperial War Museum. She was most interested in the book about the school that I'd taken down for the woman who organised getting the ticket for me. I'd forgotten, until I turned to the page it was on, that I'd had a photo, with copyright fees waived, of the battleship that the school adopted during the war. As soon as she saw it she recognised the reference number and has asked me to lodge a copy at the museum.
Second is the Deputy Head of a Primary school very close to my Mum in the North of England. I arranged to meet her and her sister at Euston so that we could travel across London together. We recognised one another immediately, even though we'd never seen any photos. After one drink that lasted over 2 hours, it was evident that we had so much in common. And now I'm a little peeved that I can't get into the CDS board to PM her. It'll have to be the phone. So, jennylyle, don't you criticise your MWNNmark2 for being an IT Bimbo. Sometimes, ET phone home is the only way to go.
ETAJM played his first solo concert in Europe on Saturday night. His newest song is called Patricia. Have I mentioned how much I hate that name? I couldn't get past it to really appreciate whether I liked the song or not . . . not, I've decided. For all you fans of JM's music, he indicated that he might be making new ones available on mp3.
