Hi

Hi Jim. You dont know me but i know your name. I worked at WSP from 1988 on cat section and often heard your name mentioned. Do you remember "London Zoo, or Zooey" (Malcolm) as he was known and of course "Gunner", who can forget him. I have to agree with you. My time at WSP was, without doubt, the b...

Spam

To be honest with you i cant remember. We all called him that and it didn't seem to bother him as i recall. We all had nicknames. Mine was "Clubby" as you know and Gunner used to call your dad "Big Fish" because it used to wind him up. I think he hated it really. Even Gunner had a nickname for his n...
