Good morning John,
It was wonderful to hear Stan singing not long ago. I always look forward to hearing Stan sing songs for you…and do you know who I miss hearing? Billy The Kid…some of his singing was a bit odd at times, but always entertaining.
I'm sorry that I couldn't make it to your lunch on Friday. I had the day off from work but finished lateish on Thursday night and had many things to do on Friday. Maybe next time. It's been a while since I managed to get to one of your lunches, so I'll have to try to get to one of them this year. I hope that the hot weather didn't detract from the lunch.
And I was very interested to hear you mention that it's Kevin Whately's birthday today. I was watching him in Inspector Morse last night. In fact there were a couple other great actors in the show last night. Roberta Taylor (Inspector Gina Gold from The Bill) and Nicholas Bell who has been in all sorts of Australian shows. My favourite role of his was as the assistant to the Olympics Minister in "The Games". Did you know that John Clarke and Gina Riley from The Games have been commissioned to produce a British version in the lead-up to the London olympics? It will be on Channel Nine at some stage.
I hope that you have a wonderful week.
