Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hi Kush, good to 'see' you (I haven't 'seen' Steven for a while, so a wave to him, too, if he reads), and ta for the extra stuff on Blue Wing.

Re: "Cuff" becomes "Cough" Arghh.

A while ago someone pointed out to me a possible reference for the line "your love is some dust in an old man's cuff": Little Gidding, the last of T. S.

Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.
