Here's the photo from last Saturday night - after the life affirming trip in Alan's Maserati. This is where the tag "grinning like a loon" came from. And yes, I know I needed a haircut. I got one yesterday from my usual hairdresser Liam. Top cutter and a very funny bloke. I wish I had his waistline.
I have been messing around with Gimp trying to remove the red eye, but I ended up looking even worse than when I started, so here is the original, unretouched version taken with Ian's mobile telephone thing (and don't worry - a prime rant on mobile telephones is coming soon - you have been forewarned!).
I just spoke to Colin on the Admiral Jellicoe on 2 metres VHF with my Icom IC 207 - it beats using the phone; apparently Woody Allan is making a new movie in the UK, starring Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell. They are using the boat yard where Colin and Danni's trawler is moored as a principal location; filming starts tomorrow morning. I will post any photos of note as I get them.
