J.B. rang to invite my mother out to lunch. He's someone she's known for 50 years at a guess. When my father left Blaw Knox Engineering to set up his own company J.B. was one of the two chaps he took with him.|
She couldn't remember his first name even though he'd just told her. "Ah, yes, John." And when she was signing off- and she was writing the appointment in her diary- she said, "I've forgotten your surname " and he had to tell her again.
