Congratulations on the POM Tony!
You’ve definitely earned it.
So do you have to share it with the people at the thrift shops?

Hi,

What a very pleasant surprise! We go away for a couple of days and return to find we have been honoured with a Project of the Month. Many thanks for the compliments. I as yet have no idea what my next project will be, I have to do some maintenance on some existing models.

Hi Bob,

Congratulations on the POM Tony! You’ve definitely earned it. So do you have to share it with the people at the thrift shops?

I suppose I should as it is where some of my ideas come from.

Regards Tony.
