    Dear Jonathan and Michael, I was curious about your Project which I saw in the Mosman Daily. I only caught up with your webpage today. So I’m too late for the obit.
    Lovely idea. As a writer I intend to write mine as a comedy after I’ve played one or two Goon Shows.
    My career has been in TV writing/Publicity etc. Since I’m a neighbour in Balmoral I’d like to drop in when you have a moment.
    Ciao, Rozamund
