Bit of a shrink are you then?

Focus like the devil, Barney chewed on a project with lazer intensity, not letting up night or day till the job was done. Unless he didn’t. Leaving the washing up to others, scalpel safely in hand, he’d cut the card.

His masterly powers of persuasion were honed to a blast – none could avoid his masterly twist, hooked you were caught and at one with the show.

Independent of authority our Barney was a one for not doing what he was told, do the opposite like as not.

Egocentric, the world revolved round his nibs.

At ease with the pain of others.
