Pleasant surprise

Post by David Frydman »

This morning I received a nice card from ALPO, Association of Lunar and Planetary Observers, telling me I have been made a life member.
I was very pleased and consider it an honour.
I haven't contributed any papers for a very long time, although I still observe Jupiter's moons and Titan with binoculars, as well as the Sun with the PST etc.

Regards,
David

Yes, I agree and an unexpected accolade must be the best. Recently, I was asked to
give a demontration of the Foredown Tower Camera Obscure to the new Mayor of Brighton & Hove, who had not seen it. Therefore I was not surprised when lots of other people turned up, although I did wonder why there was a covered plaque on the wall. Trying to get the visitors set up round the screen, I was about to close the shutters to darken the room, when I discovered that the reason that they had really all come was to celebrate the 25 years of me working there and doing all I could to support the the camera obscura; from "Friend of the Tower", to volunteer, paid part-timer, paid full-timer (all underHove Borough Council), then Brighton & Hove Borough Council and retirement, followed by a volunteering again under the local Academy (PACA). And am still going there.........what a surprise that was! regards maf
