Thanks for sharing, Ken!
He does look like a great bloke! He looks very kind.
I agree Eowyn, it's surprising what can be given in a photograph. Wouldn't it have been great to have met him? I bet he had all of the old standards of the day which sadly are all but gone with the majority of us.
You're welcome Chris!
It would have been, for sure.  He does look very gentlemanly.  The other thing that is really neat about this picture is that it was taken in December and it feels very Christmas-y, even though there's really nothing obvious in the picture to give that away.
Different days mate, ones that all future generations will look back on with a feeling of depth when they get to the age where these things matter. Does that make sense?
