Yes and no. Indeed, ’tis I, Leo, your old school mate, however I no longer live in Hoylake. After we left school I lived in Chester and Neston mostly. Then, ten years ago (and I can neither confirm or deny the rumours that it was because you had stopped speaking to me in 1983) I moved a bit further away…currently I live surrounded by temperate rain forest quite close (by local standards) to Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s a bit different from Hoylake or West Kirby but you know what? I miss living near to the beach. Don’t tell me – you’re still in that room in your folk’s house in Newton aren’t you?
