Mr Gray............I don't believe it...well actually yes--I do !! I remember when I was a sixth former at St Agnes's Grammar School(1972)and you were my English teacher, that word in the common room was that you had a written a book about Bob Dylan.Strangely enough I was telling my daughter(she's 20 and at Sheffield Uni)about you the other day--she loves Bob Dylan!Do you remember that American bitch of a teacher--she taught English as well-don't think she liked you too much ? I was in the same class as Betty Manning--infact I can remember one of the comments that you wrote at the end of one of her essays-strange the things that stick in your mind eh? By the way--I'm Sue Rodden(that was my name then--I had two blond streaks at the front of my hair).It's so great to see that you kept up with your writing--and so sucessfully too ! Well good luck for the future ,Mr Gray! And at last I've impressed my daughter! Cheers !
