I've finally bitten the bullet and decided to send Joe and Hank for reflocks! They thought they'd pose with some of Tony's previous patients before they left.

Joe will be looking more like the guy on the right when he returns!

'...and so you're back from outer space, I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face'

Ooops no not Gloria Gayner's girly anthem but Joe and Hank back from Flocktastic!

Tony 'Flocktastic' has done a fantastic job as usual and what a transformation!

Anyone who's spoken to me over the last week will know how nervous I was trusting my two favourite childhood VAM to the Royal Mail but my fears were ungrounded and I'm delighted I took the plunge!

My big worry was Joe. Being a very early flockhead he's a lighter brown and has a distinct hairline compared to later issues and I wanted to keep these features. Tony Rose to the challenge and Joe has now been restored to his former glory!

Here's some before and after pics to illustrate the change..

Straight out the loft in 2008.

So a big thank you to Tony for rejuvenating my old guys and to Dal and Ralph for nagging me into it! lol!
