Hi, all. It's been a while since I was on Livejournal at all, but--as I mentioned on Facebook recently--my wife and I visited Bedford in late October and during that visit we met for the first time with Steve's sister, Melanie. She kindly gave us a (1991) sketchbook of Steve's. This (in addition to FB) is an appropriate place to post some scans from it (although I realize that the material may have been shared here already.) so please stay tuned. I regret I was unable to meet with any of you during my brief, hastily-arranged visit--whose main purpose was to see my mother, who is in a nursing home.

Temporary Blip re Steve's Flickr Account
April 7th 2011; Through an oversight I forgot to renew Steve's paid Flickr account, so at the moment only the last 200 images are visible. I've already renewed the account, but the payment system is backed up, so there may be a delay before normal service is resumed.

Just to reassure everyone, when a paid Flickr account runs out, older posts are hidden but not deleted. All the uploaded images are still safe, but the older ones won't be accessible until payment goes through.
