Dear Pin,

     While we shared a delicious meal with Richard and had a great visit with Johnson Tan, we never got to your articles. I'm sorry for that.
Best,
Joey

Hi Pin,

You start to appreciate that there is more than just beautiful art in his bottles when you learn of the hardships he, and others, endured to produce that art. Thank you for translating it.

Was that a younger Joey in one of the pictures ?

Regards, Adrian.

Yup, Adrian. Wow, you are sharp! Well spotted.

     The 1983 ICSBS [first] Toronto Convention picture, shows me in a late 18th C./early 19th C. Dragon robe, at the Final Banquet with Wang Xisan and the late Bill Griswold z"l. I later traded that robe to Linda Wrigglesworth in London, for a late 19th C. Dragon banner, used by the Qing military. I have it mounted on the wall in my entrance hall in Ireland.

    Best,
Joey
