    Not immediately, but Ms Caruso did eventually hook up with Bond again in more relaxed circumstances.

    Probably with some career-building in mind, Ms Caruso also had a relationship with the Minister of Defence.

    He had a thing for garters.

    She became a hypnotherapist.

    At least, that's what she said.

    I think.

    I may have been distracted somewhat.

    Made a point with all visits to bring her "special blend".

    A favorite Caruso holiday gift: espresso for two.

    I see you are spilling the beans @RichardTheBruce about the delightful Ms. Caruso.

    Amazing that Bond's coffee maker gave her the inspiration to become a tycoon!

    First name Teresa, Ms. Caruso made a sideline with her passion for organization of household spaces.

    Took on a (not so clever) pen name to collaborate on a children's book.

    Likely inspired at least in part by Bond, she had a signature cocktail.

    Enrico Caruso - La Bohème - Che Gelida Manina (Remastered) (4:19)

    English Translation

    What a frozen little hand,

    let me warm it for you.
    What's the use of looking?
    We won't find it in the dark.
    But luckily
    it's a moonlit night,
    and the moon
    is near us here.
    Wait, mademoiselle,
    I will tell you in two words,
    who I am, what I do,
    and how I live. May I?
    Who am I? I am a poet.
    What do I do? I write.
    And how do I live? I live.
    In my carefree poverty
    I squander rhymes
    and love songs like a lord.
    When it comes to dreams and visions
    and castles in the air,
    I've the soul of a millionaire.
    From time to time two thieves
    steal all the jewels
    out of my safe, two pretty eyes.
    They came in with you just now,
    and my customary dreams
    my lovely dreams,
    melted at once into thin air!
    Bu the theft doesn't anger me,
    for their place has been
    taken by hope!
    Now that you know all about me,
    you tell me who you are.
    Please do!

    Under the assumed name "Madeline Smith", apparently she's doing very well today.

    Ms. Caruso! A lovely creature with a wonderful series of lives post her encounter with Mr. Bond.

    This chap found himself battling Bond at school. Hai Fat needed protection and he chose Chula to battle and protect him. Chula and Bond had a stand off at the school and were soon boat bound and chasing down the river. Chula was last seen in a boat as it sank in the "clean" river water.

    One wonders what happened to him? Did he continue to work at the school? Or perhaps he left and free lanced for other wealthy Asian businessmen? One thing for sure he lived to see another day.

    Irredeemably shamed and resolving to never again "miss the boat", he moved to the US and bought a (fishing) vessel.

    And got into the fish market and restaurant business at prime locations.

    Surprisingly, no British-style fish and chips on the menu.

    He also leveraged his Mexican heritage for another successful venture.

    Profits in the US were channeled back to Chulalongkorn University.

    Which now allows female participation in martial arts training.

    Early on, Chula sought to escape associations with organized crime.

    He had mild success marketing a cleaning product.

    Despite his many successes, Chula's troubled conscience frequently turned to regret.

    Recalling his unfortunate matching with a more righteous British agent. Bad memories.

    Nice to know that Chula wasn't tied, or is it Thail'd?, to one line of work. LOL!

    Time to move on to another adventure and another character. He was our man's contact in Egypt. I am talking about Sheikh Hosein. He attended college with our man back in the day. He has a rather elaborate setup out in the desert. Even offering our man a chance to delve into the treasures of Egypt.

    Last seen in his tent and with a bevy of ladies, did the Sheikh continue to work for Mi6? Or did he retire with his bevy of ladies?

    Whatever happened to Sheikh Hosein?

    His earlier contact with British Agent (when Sheikh was known as "Beau Ellington", race car driver) possibly foreshadowed his demeanor in Egypt. And future associates.
