Extract from e-mail, Oct. 2005, Rod Gall, ( GlescaPal Caltoncuddy ) Australia
...I found these programmes at a garage sale in Adelaide and knowing of your great love of the BB I thought you may like to have them. I'll take this opportunity to thank you for your GlescaPals website, its wonderful to keep in touch with home in such a hands on way. I just love making new GlescaPals from the four corners of the earth... long may it flourish...."
