Just to advise that Lieutenant Christopher Robin FARROW has just joined the zipper club and had a triple by-pass heart operation. Chris is in Wakefield Hospital in Wellington and is recovering well. For those who cannot remember Chris he was an ex Chief Sparker who commissioned in 1985. Who says sparkers don’t have hearts. If you want to leave a comment to this posting, I will ensure it is passed on. Regards Frank
Happy to report that Chris has now been discharged from Hospital into the loving care of his wife, Nurse Joan, who I am sure will keep him on the straight and narrow in the short term. Joan is also happy to report that Chris has been given the book that Jim Dell referred to and is lining up dishwasher, laundry, vacuuming and other duties. Chris has asked me to convey his thanks for all the kind wishes he has received via the blog and facebook. Upwards and onwards and in the words of only Chris ‘I wouldn’t be dead for quids’.
