The visit to the hospital today did not leave Francis full of the joys of spring, The medics are not happy with the progress of his eye and are suggesting a possible second op. Needless to say, added to the rain, that put a bit of a damper on the day, he says. He is still looking for a parrot to go on the shoulder in true Clouseau style; although his requirement is not for an inflateable model. Anyway, Keep Calm & Carry On, says he and thanks to all the good wishes from RB friends. He will keep shooting away and I will keep doing his messages. It seems one eye is pretty good for photography but, everything falls down when he has to write; being dyslexic is no help. Anyway he sends good wishes to all of you.
