About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I like to listen to BBC Radio 4 and the wind in the pine trees. I am writing a comedy about a school in Benidorm. My favourite film of all time is "Jean de Florette". If I had my time again I would not have spent the early 1970s working for Special Branch.

    Yes, he is. I was thinking of attempting to put an Omar Sharif moustache on him, but he had already had enough of the headgear, so I retired before things got too fraught.

  3. One of the people I manage, and a friend, is a retired stewardess. She is very beautiful and met all sorts of celebrities back in the day when flying was more romantic. She went on a date with Mr. Sharif and has nothing but good to say about him. Apparently he was very chivalrous and charming. You probably also know he was a champion bridge player.

    Is that a tea-towel?

    What a gorgeous boy….no Brother Lapin, Morris…not you! His expression could say many things…a couple which are probably best not written here. 🙂

    No it is NOT a tea towel… Well, all right, yes it IS a tea towel. But Morris insisted on wearing a clean tea towel.
