Mr Professor’s reaction
16/05/2012 § 1 Comment
This morning: I received a lovely message from Mrs Jarvis the lovely wife of the Professor.
‘Just wanted to let you know Mr Professor’s response to his portrait. We had hung it up in the sitting room and draped a sheet over it and then after breakfast on his birthday we unveiled it. He was very surprised, I think it’s fair to say! I think he doesn’t think of himself as a ‘portrait subject’ so it took him about 24 hours to get used to the idea of being on the wall. And now, he’s really chuffed. He loved your sweet message on the back, so thank you again – I think it’s been a great way of marking this milestone in the old chap’s life!’
I have a warm feeling in me belly. Thank you for this kind note Mrs Jarvis.
