What ho Bill. Nice to see your website, and I still recall some of your amusing stories told whilst I was a patient of yours in Dubai.
All the best to you, and have a super Christmas.

Dear Bill,
Remember the strangeness of being married students at UCL in the '50s?
Dione & I hope to survive until January 2017 for our Diamond Anniversary! Four daughters, of whom you know Penny, 13 grandchildren, one GGchild - William Henry John, in NY due to his father's hometown with a new brother expected next year. Still living in Oxford with our surgical spares working more or less well.
Hope you're still soaking up Provencal sunshine and loving it. Best wishes, Pat.

Hi Mick We were familiar with this part of Provence at the foot of Mont Ventoux. it is a wine and fruit growing area witha climate which is generally favourable especially to those who have spent getting on for 30 years in the (often fierce) sun. Regards Bill

Hi Bill! Just had to let you know how much I enjoyed your memories of Ramadan in Riyadh! Not being a doctor, I didn't have to worry about the effects on my patients, but honestly, I loved Ramadan and stayed in the kingdom during that time for 11 out of the 12 years I lived there. It was so quiet and peaceful during the daylight hours! But yes, my Muslim friends were a bit grumpy because they were hungry and sleepy, but it was part of the charm. While reading your delightful piece it reminded me how all of us living there had such different experiences. You really saw a side of Saudi that few others did... Anyhow, just to repeat that I love your site and truly enjoy your postings.... Take care my friend! PS: Here I am in a photo enjoying breaking the Ramadan fast with some friends. As usual, my female Muslim friends generally turn their faces to the camera!

Hello Bill. I was one of the first people to read your excellent book "Doctor Lark" and I found it fascinating and revealing. We have known each other for almost 50 years - first in RAF Germany (I was the navigator of that Canberra which we took to Malta for a weekend break as mentioned in your book - see photo, you on the right and me on the left) and later in the RAF in Malaysia - but despite long gaps we have managed to maintain contact with each other. My wife Rita & I have yet to meet Maria but we have frequent email contact with her and appreciate the photos and video clip she send out to friends. Rita & I hope that your spinal problem does not cause you too much of a problem: old age can be a bastard (I know, I'm 88 now) but it's still better than the alternative. Rita & I have many happy memories of our times together and we cherish our friendship with you & Maria - long may it continue.

See, you had me laughing so hard that I couldn't spell. I meant! "Tickled PINK"

Really great website. I enjoyed it more than you'll ever know... And, tell me, what is a speech bubble? I almost tried it but I am easily frightened by stuff online that I have NO clue about!

Once I stopped laughing at the thought that Dr. William Larkworthy could ever fit the description of a poor lonely old guy sitting among the vines of Provence, I was able to muster up the strength to write you a note. You and your wife Maria are among the most entertaining, interesting people I've yet to know. And, I know how your home is Provence overflows with guests because EVERYONE wants to come and spend time with you two! I'm so delighted that I came to know you and Maria during those "sometimes exciting" and other times, "very dark" days in Saudi Arabia. I really am enjoying this website. Keep adding to it, please so I can get my fun fix at least once a week! And, of course, you know how much I LOVE your book, Bill. You are a wonderfully talented writer and any writer would be tickled pick to have your writing skills. You and Maria are loved by many! Your ole friend from the days of Riyadh, Jean Sasson PS: Photo of Jean & Jack in the hills overlooking Jerusalem. We found Palestine & Israel to be such a magical place. Had lots of interesting stuff happen to us, too! Looking forward to going back one day...
