Hullo. I'm Roger, Sri's husband. I'm stowing away in this little corner of her website just so I can try blogging and see if I like it. I'm going to write about anything that takes my fancy, though at my age you might say I'm past fancying anything. Wrong!

I was in a greeting card shop the other day, browsing through a rack full of cards illustrated with New Yorker cartoons. Part of New Yorker artists' staple fare is the cartoon showing two domestic animals, usually dogs and/or cats, talking to each other. This one had two dogs on the street. One is saying to the other, "I had a blog for a while, but now I've gone back to barking aimlessly." It's just the sort of line James Thurber would have hit on with delight. I intend to bark, but will try to aim at something, trivial or not.

Dear Sri - Imagine my surprise and delight this evening whilst watching Raymond Leblanc on tv when you appeared on his programme. I worked with you in 1977 at the BBC when I was the secretary (Sue Barnes) in those days fr the Indonesian Service . I still have your book - The Home Book of Indonesian Cookery - which you personally signed for me. I often reflect on those days working with so many lovely people. So pleased to see you and Roger are well. I have attached my email address I woud love to hear from you. Kind regards Sue xx
