Needless to say this is an inexpensive outlay as it was bought at auction (maybe 25 years or more old, unused with original label, string and packaging).

When I saw Henry yesterday afternoon he was lying on the bed after his operation. By this afternoon he was sitting up in bed (resting from having walked round the bed to the chair - with the aid of a Zimmer Frame), and by tonight he was back in the chair, having walked the length of the ward to the toilet and back again. So all is going well and the next step will be crutches. He's expecting to come home on Friday, then the real work will begin - adjusting to living in a house not really suited to part human/part Borg.
Another bulletin tomorrow

But now he is the owner of a shiny bright new hip. He walked down to the Operating Theatre this morning (WGH), was anaesthetised in his spine and then listened to Chris Rea and The Saw Doctors on his MP3 player while the surgeon did his magic. When I saw him about 2pm today he was lying comfortably in bed and managed a few of the obligatory grapes I had taken in. He gets today to lie back and rest then the learning to walk begins.
Many thanks for all the good wishes, by phone, text, post and email (and for the "Survival Kit"). He hopes to come home on Friday and visitors will be very welcome.

We're just back from a very brief weekend (well, one day) break in Harrogate
The photo doesn't really do justice to the concert. It's taken with my phone and a non too steady hand. If you want to see what all the fuss is about look at this site.
