Beautifully cut nails huh...

Not what you'd expect from the man as described by JK! :)

Very Neat nails considering

Very Neat nails considering the previous days work on the rusty spounting and roof.

if they were long and uncut...

then yes, you'd expect to see some damage.

But he keeps them short and tidy - so one wouldn't expect to see damage from some roof and spouting work.

(Long nails break easily, short do not).

Good points

These are all good points, but didn't the marks on Robin's thumb go in a different direction?

  • Paul Holmes: He was obsessed

    The difficulty of being a friend of Joe – and we all found this, I think, those who were close to Joe – was that you had to accept that the David Bain case, and what he saw as a battle for justice, had taken over Joe's life. There was a long period in the late 90s and the fi rst few years of this century when there was no conversation to be had with Joe that was not about David Bain. Joe was so committed to his cause, and so dedicated as to seem obsessed. Well, he was obsessed. Occasionally, I would think of saying to him when we caught up to unwind on a Friday night: "Can we be friends who don't talk about David Bain all night? Is it possible for us to communicate outside this Bain business?"
