Hello Dylan and congratulations on the Lily M outcome. When I flew out of the UK just over three weeks ago you were up at Kip with Lily M…….. I have just returned and the whole drama is done and dusted. I followed it all online of course and chucked in the odd comment here and there. I gave some thought to your expenditure and the problems of persuading more folk to chip in, rather than getting the faithful to chip in more dosh. I just checked my cheque stubs and I see that in the 24 months between Jan 2015 and Jan 2017 I sent you a total of £240 to help you along with the KTL project.
Two points here……….. the first is that as an ‘old bloke’ who doesn’t do Paypal and taps I really feel that you should better promote the pay by post option for UK followers at the very least. Seeing an invitation to tap but not being a ‘tapper’, too many viewers will just move on and there goes a bit of useful income. The second point is a purely personal view of KTL funding. I do not feel any compunction to make a payment because I particularly enjoy one of your films. I enjoy all of them and find them entertaining, educational, beautiful to watch and sometimes very funny. I subscribe to the whole happy KTL adventure with it’s priceless band of MOBs and their endless comments from the practical to the frankly ribald. Your hard work, enthusiasm and technical skills shine out from your work and I will continue to bung you the occasional payment just to help, as I have always done. There……..’nuff said’ S
