My sincere thanks to you magnificent mudcatters for all your good wishes and words of comfort during my hospitalisation. As you probably know from Madam Gashee, that the operation went well and it appears that no further treatment is needed in the short term but monitoring will be essential for at least five years. I am feeling better each day and eating well. By Christmas I shall be back with "The Baggies" and we'll be on the road again in 2002.
Thanks Mr Red for your suggestion of a Bowelsprit Shanty. I shall put it at the BOTTOM of my song list!!
By the way The Baggies suitably costumed are singing carols in Swansea's Christmas market this week. I hope that they are not "hampering" the shoppers!! They came to the hospital to sing carols last Sunday and they discharged me on Tuesday. I wonder if there was a connection there?
Only joking guys!!
The Season's Greetings to all Mudcatters.
Thanks again for kind thoughts.
