The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
Hi Grant Thanks for posting the interesting (and cheap) programme. The short biographies of Tim and Stephanie were informative but I am a little suprised that Stephanie's didn't mention her big sister! Perhaps, she would prefer it that way.
Best Wishes Martin
ps that is certainly Steve's photo taken I believe at Cadogan Hall a while back (and also shortlisted in our recent competition).
Some of you may have picked up in one of my previous posts that I promised another picture. Well, at the risk of acute embarrassment and ridicule, I've decided to post both! i.postimg.cc/9fYxy370/smilie-big-grin.gif
I hadn't realised until recently that Karsten actually caught the moment that Hayley was urging me to stand up and take a bow! Well, he caught a lot more than that!
I remember very clearly standing up and turning to face the audience wondering whether or not I should bow or wave I'm still not sure what I actually did but I was grateful for the blinding spotlight as it prevented me from seeing all those grinning faces.
The moment seems to take on a more special meaning as time passes so it's perhaps fitting that I've waited until now to post the pictures.
So, a huge "Thank you!!" to Hayley for making it happen and to Karsten for recording it. Bless you both!!
