All My Eye - Thanks are due.
my local doctors at The New Croft Surgery who took my condition as seriously
as they did and shunted me off to hospital.
To the surgical and nursing team at Leeds General Infirmary who were unfailingly pleasant and helpful, and who gave me the best care I could imagine.
To Penny, who ferried me about, put the drops in, and looked after me while I was "hors de combat".
Badruddin Saiyed who was undergoing much the same operation as me, and
who helped pass the time on the ward.
To Radio 4, the best posturing aid possible.
Finally, to Smudge and Tabs, who feature extensively on these pages, and were endlessly entertaining during my recovery.
