Phil asked if he could take this candid shot as a memento. Note the cigarette - we were the cigarette and cinema generation (fags and flicks). I haven't smoked since 1977.

Charming Charming picture, my dear Pat...We certainly were the cigarette and cinema generation....
I've been "clean" since 1970! It still amazes me that we all smoked, all the time. Incredible, isn't it?

Wow, Pat...history! Did you see the piece the BBC did on Alan Sillitoe and smoking - pictures and interview. Very illuminating. How things change.

Naomi: you are always ahead of us in the States. I stopped in 1977 after a visit to a health farm. It was so expensive I thought I had better not waste the money.

Penny: no I really would have liked to see that. It was almost a fashion statement with us. Gave us an air of sophistication
