Personal thanks

While I was at Melody’s and in the immediate years thereafter, I was helped by a number of people. I think that it is only right for me to mention some of them and that for a while, their names should be up in lights where they belong.

Bill Moore, the Irish saint who saved my life.

Charlie and Joyce Robb, whose patience and faith in me is infinite.

Keith Appleby, as good as they come.

Jacqueline Miller, A flower of the Sun.

Terry Slater, who has saved me hours of travelling. Does anyone cover as many miles as Terry?

Ronnie Musker, tough as teak on the outside, but soft underneath. His wife, Barbara and daughter Wendy, tea and sandwich makers supreme. I am not mentioning Cheryl, as she hardly ever makes the tea!

Sam Cornwell, top dog clock restorer and confident, and his wife Ann who has an ever willing ear.

Joe Rowley, always my friend.

Arthur Barlow and our many walks with our dogs.

Barney and Gizzy, my two King Charles Cavalier Spaniels.

Lastly, but certainly by no means least, I would like to thank all the people who graciously bought a clock from me and were therefore ultimately responsible for me making a living. You know who you are. Bless you.
