Will do that for you Pete, we are leaving all our unused items with Jimmy on Monday night to save him a few Euros. Stuff like bathroom goodies and unopened food items. Probably see him later today and will let you know if he remembers you guys.

Keith, could you pls say Hi from Pete and Chez from The Cottage. Chez knew Jimmy (if same one!) from UK and worked with him many years ago in timeshare. Used to catch up now and then when we had accountant in Albufeira but we don't often get down there these days. Many thanks, Pete

final whistle, it would be nice to hook up if you are in town, I am here until Tuesday. I am sure Jimmy would love to know he has 'followers'.....he's had a few down moments recently and has been feeling that he's been poked with the sh*tty end of the stick. A couple of us together might just perk him up a little and believe in himself again. He did a great job tonight and the restaurant was very busy. Let me know if you can hook up with me.

Jimmy is well .... Not had a drink for 35 days, and it shows. He is looking a bit more dapper these days and is drinking ....WATER!!! He had a bit of a scare and ended up in Faro hospital, but looks well now. Had a lovely chat with him....and he even remembered us from December. One of the characters on the street here and we'll always make time for Jimmy from Sunny Scunny!

Will be calling to see Jimmy today. Still going strong and by the sounds of it as chipper as ever. My daughter and her boyfriend came back to the apartment two nights ago saying they'd been talking to a lovely English chap on the street but not gone for dinner....we'll put that right before the weekend and leave a few Euros in his hand.

Been talking to Jimmy tonight, business is slow because the tour companies are tending to redirect t business to the Strip rather than the old town while the rebuilding goes on. Jimmy is doing his best to bring customers in and is doing a cracking job under the circumstances. I just hope he's here in February when I am here next as he is a real character and is a lovely guy to talk to. We just walked down past the bar and he aapproached us 'underselling' the cafe/bar he was touting for and won us over. What a find and we'll be back in a few weeks to buy him another ccuple of bottles and have another meal.
