SB they are drawings for internal light boxes for a famous shirt and hat shop in Jermyn St., London, a bit boring really. I used to do portraits and buildings, but lost interest years ago. I've got the signs to do for Barrafinos tapas bar, the new name for the Kings Arms pub, I tried to kill it with the price but got the job anyway, so can't complain.

I suppose you are right SB, I've never been out of work in my life, and even now I'm getting more work, which I'll continue to do as long as I'm fit enough, the only time I draw the line now is high ladder work, against H and S rules anyway.

The last time we were down in Brighton we came down for a long weekend, it rained the whole time we were there. Not that it mattered much to us as we still did what we wanted to do. We stopped at one of the B & B's on this street, I can't remember the name of it now, but they had just finished filming some scenes for Coronation Street there. I can't even recall how long ago it was but its certainly less than ten years ago. The landlady of the B & B had a son who was a midget or a dwarf, I don't know what the proper word would be. But it was a nice enough place and it was clean with good food.
