  • Lynn's notes

    Lynn's notes

    Rawlinsons have agreed to give Alan a quantity of chocolate oranges (slightly damaged) if he mentions their shop on his radio show.

    Pear Tree Productions need to make savings. Either Alan downsizes his Rover 800 or sacks everyone at Pear Tree. Got brochures for the Rover Metro.

    Alan has decided to sack everyone. He's taken the afternoon off to visit an owl sanctuary with his secretary, Jill. He must like her, he bought her a chocolate orange instead of giving her one of the free Rawlinsons ones.

    Good news, managed to negotiate a walnut gear knob for the new smaller rover. Must remember to drop off Alan's Fungal foot powder.

  • Lynn, Alan's P.A.

    Lynn, Alan's P.A.

    Lynn is Alan's selfless and utterly loyal personal assistant. She's up early and works late which is quite something given that Alan pays her £7,000 a year.

    She attends a local Baptist church and is one of the few people who has had a good look at the mystery thing in Alan's top drawer.
    Lynn is also pretty good at impersonating farmers and holding a hand fan. Alan describes Lynn as being like Burt Reynolds - very reliable but she's got a moustache.
