TOPIC: What a wonderful surprise
#177231
What a wonderful surprise 5 Months, 1 Week ago  
I get an e mail from a fellow Charterhouse pupil who was in the same class as me and made some minor corrections to one of my tales of school life. He's just bought 65 My Life So Far and is enjoying it. He passed on to me the address of our favourite master (now in his 90s) so I've rushed off a letter thanking him for inspiring my love of literature. The sad part is - the book was dedicated to Bob Woffinden - my friend who recently passed away and clearly his belongings are being given to charity. Ah well; at least I've contributed to a good cause!

And now a delightful (and rather classy) postcard from the aforementioned teacher - in his late 90s - thanking me for my letter and passing on views of great current literature - plus mentioning he loved my hits!

Very sad to lose Bob Woffinden so early and I admired his work long before I knew JK knew him.

One thing about a person's belongings going to charity: there is every chance they will end up the hands of people who may treasure them. I found things I still love from years of wandering down Portobello Road and checking out the dozens of stalls when I lived just off it. They've been transported across the world
