My father, known to many here as Albertdog, has asked me to write this message on his behalf. A month ago, he suffered a stroke, from which, I am very pleased to say, he is recovering well. He has some remaining right-sided hemiplegia, although his speech improving well. His prognosis seems to be very good. My father has 'waxed lyrical' about just how much he enjoyed writing for his fellow 'Tessers' and how much he valued and appreciated their fellowship and support. He is very touched by the messages of concern he has received, apologises for any worry he might have caused, and sends his best wishes to all. Hopefully, my father will soon be able to use a modified keyboard and resume his correspondence. I think he fancies himself like 'that wheelchair guy' but without the Dalek voice! Lucy Russell.
