As the pain and confusion slowly dissipates, and reality returns reluctantly  to both body and mind of our heroic twit, patience will still be required for a while yet, as much of the confusion and pain remains - although slowly lessening I hope!
I'd like to thank Chris & Bill for the unexpected but most heart-warming get well card received, and the thoughtfully added old photos from 1959 and there abouts - pure bliss to look at enjoyed so much - thanks again bless you both!
