Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Thank you Pete...just for the record (no pun intended), 'Mad Tom O'Bedlam' & the rest of The Halliard repertoire were written by Dave Moran & Nic Jones. Nic & I then arranged the instrumental parts to make the songs performable. Thinking of you & Tommy & trusting the bone scan comes back with encouraging news.

Wendy...I'm lost for words. Thank you seems totally inadequate. Through all your trials & tribulations, you find time for me & always raise my spirits. I've said this before, but from your tentative first posts, you've become a stalwart Crew member. You are loved, admired & respected in equal measure. The trite comments I make on FB are a 'smoke screen'. The real me appears only here. Wendy, your candour & willingness to share in such intimate detail has emboldened me to 'open up' & for that, I am truly grateful.

ChanteyLass...I'm hanging in, but it's a real finger tip job! Knowing that I sail in such distinguished company, firms up those old fingertips, so I won't be letting go any time soon.

Gnu, what a meaningful sentence: "Patience IS love and that is what it is all about." I need to learn from that. I'm not renowned for my Patience.

I've left a message on Dan's thread. That he is on line & responding is very encouraging. I hope he visits us here when he is well enough so to do.

My final thoughts are reserved for Spaw. I hope you get to read this because after a little research, I discovered that 'Pat' (Patrick) means: "Scion of a noble family." It's not beyond the bounds of credibility that you could be descended from Scottish Royalty! Rise UP Sir Spaw!
       With Love to You All,
                                       Nigel.
