      Hi Jeff, I do not know if I ever have seen this message or not. I only discovered another one over a year later and saw yours as well. We may have discussed things but I cannot check as my old computer crashed and I can’t trace back your name. So, whatever, hello and lekker bly.

      Klaus, KSEngineers@aol.com for quicker response.

      Hi Stephen. What a surprise to hear from you. I only found this message now, so you must have thought I have moved on as well. But how do you remember me? We left Beech Leaf Court in 1983 and you must be in your forties. Yes, I probably play now my best tennis at age 78 with all the tricks I have to do because of my age. But I get a lot of compliments at how agile and fit I am. Are you an engineer that you got onto my website? And you remember that we came from South Africa. How is your mother? If you reply to this use KSEngineers@aol.com then I discover it much earlier. Where do you live now and what kind of assistance could you offer, engineering? I still work a little, keeps my mind fresh and one never stops learning. Thanks for contacting me, sorry it took so long. Klaus
