Surely it's Music, wine, tortoises, Manchester United, golf (no offence to tortoises).
Thanks for a great night tonight at Ramsbottom Civic Hall.
I managed to snag one of your sketches which made it even better.

Thank you for a wonderful presentation at the East Midlands dementia day today! Your story moved me to tears and your fabulous illustrations conveyed your important message so eloquently.

Thank you Tony for the very moving talk at Exeter Phoenix. You have no idea how much I can relate to your experiences through cute drawings about your dad. My grandmother who I can describe almost as my second mother has Alzheimer's and the journey is being very hard. It it ironic how those that once took care of us once end up depending on us. 'Take care, son' what a nice last phrase for you to keep in mind. I believe that even though it looks are if they were drifting apart, deep inside they are always there, just hidden under that horrible fog of dementia that does not let us see them but from time to time it dissipates and they are able to wish us well. Your talk brought tears to my eyes and although I really wanted to speak to you I had to head back home but I am already looking for your book online. Thank you Tony.

Was a HUGE fan of Round The Bend as a kid and I think it was the only childrens show my mum loved too.

So glad to find them again, the so bad its great crude jokes still hold up (well I guess toilet humour never dies).

I don't think I have laughed this much in years and have a whole new appreciation for it as an adult.

I discovered an episode of the TV series Round the Bend which I watched as a kid on ITV just recently. Hilarious! Thanks for the memories.

Hello Tony, I have a friend called Ian who's trying to grow a beard. do you mind if I use a copy of your "Brian's trying to grow a beard" cartoon and chop off the "Br"?
(Coincidentally) Ian

Many years I bought Private Eye in order to cut out and collect the cartoons. When faced with life's surprises and disasters I usually remembered that there was a cartoon that already set precedence to such an occasion.
This includes a lot of Tony's cartoons.

The one exception that had not been predicted has been the day my wife decided that my cartoon collection was surplus to requirements! A somber future........

Hi Tony. For more than 40 years I've laboured under the misapprehension that Grass Eye had the honour of launching your illustrious career. I see from a certain Manchester website, however, that you remember it differently - with the "first published cartoon" accolade going to Mole Express, dammit! Do you remember any other Grass Eye cartoonists? The late Ray Lowry and 'Ant' spring to mind. Good to see you've not 'lost it' - your 'toons still make me chuckle and your website 'intro' is just brilliant. K

Dear Tony,
I will be hunting for your book. I learned about your work through Hilary Price (Rhymes With Orange cartoonist).
Best wishes from a new fan who lost her father to AD and cared for many patients with that awful disease.

Hi Tony
Thanks for a wonderful talk at the RA today. I didn't have time to wait and get your business card but now you have my contact. If you were prepared to talk to me about my approach to dealing with caring & death through yoga and mindfulness and my idea for a practical book based on my experience it would be amazing to share some thoughts with you! You have really inspired me!
PS I'm the woman you thought you might have met before - though I don't think you have!
Rachel
