About

Found the ideal past-time once I retired early after nearly 20 years making babies nappies. Writing of course why didn't I think of it before. I consider myself the surrogate Grand-father of the 300+ primary school children where I now work part-time at 'Cosy Primary School' the adopted home of Billy the Dragon in 'The Dragon and Turkana Boy'
