Thanks Lynn-yes fine but after a year or more free of any kind of virus or whatever the hay fever season brought both Andy and me a week of feeling rotten!

Hi Nats

It was very nice meeting you, Joe and Neil. I enjoyed it a lot, and I'm up for a repeat next year for more fish and chips - I mean - for another meeting with valued friends and colleagues.

How cool is this! I do know that Joe meeting up with Don Rumbelow wasn't in his plans. I also know that he had the time of his life!

Sincerely,
Mike

Scott, don't ever look at the sun - you'll burn a hole in the back of your head.



This is from Joe Chetcuti:





Scott Nelson has no glass eye, but he does look very distinguished when wearing his Colonel Klink monocle.



Thank you for posting the photos, Norma. I'm so glad that Neil Storey took pictures last Saturday! I could see why Neil receives standing ovations for his presentations at Ripper Conferences. The man has a dynamic personality and he is extremely knowledgable in numerous subjects.



I thoroughly enjoyed the sites of London and the peaceful environment of the East Sussex village where I stayed. But it is the sharing of good company with Ripperology friends that truly stands out. I will remember that most of all.



I had the pleasure of meeting Chris Phillips at the British Library St. Pancras. Adrian Morris kindly joined me for a roast pork dinner on Brushfield Street. It was great to shake hands with Ricky Cobb, Lindsay Siviter, and John Bennett at the White Hart Pub. And I had a splendid time on Sunday night during John Bennett's Ripper Walk. He does a top-notch job.



I headed for the Tower Hill Ripper Walk on Saturday, but I got soaking wet in a rain storm on my way there and had to change plans. (We Californians wouldn't know how to operate an umbrella even if our lives depended on it.) I don't think Don Rumbelow conducts Ripper Walks from Tower Hill on Saturdays, but it would be an honor to meet him some day. The man is a legend.



Spending time with the great artist Jane Coram and her husband & daughter was a pure delight. They are such a talented and warm-hearted family. Friends like that are worth a mountain of gold.



But the most impressive part of the vacation was watching Robert chug down three tall 'Knickerbocker Glories' in less than a minute at the Liberty Bounds. The 16 year olds just couldn't keep up with him.



It was a memorable vacation and I'm glad you were a big part of it, Norma. There are plenty of good people in this Ripperology field of ours. Helpful people with good hearts, and it's a pleasure to be with you all.

Thanks Robert and Joe-first my apologies to Neil Storey for spelling his name wrongly---I knew the correct spelling it was just a typo-[twice in fact ] but sorry Neil. Neil and I agreed we would swap books as he said he would like a copy of my book on James Hanratty and the A6 in exchange for him sending me a copy of his book which sounds fascinating and I am looking forward very much to reading.

Yes Joe, Saturday was really great!
