Default Character reference- Scamp help please

Hi All, namely Scamp,

I have been asked to give a character reference for an ex colleague/friend. Whilst I have given references in the past I haven't been asked to do just a character reference before, what should I be putting in this?

Cheers

KC

From Google Flowerpot:-

To Whom it May Concern:

I have had the pleasure of knowing Kittycat1 for eight years. During the years of our acquaintance, I have known Kitty in many capacities. She has been my Mother's Maid since the birth of my first child five years ago. Her responsibilities in that capacity have grown with the activity level of a now pre-schooler, and the addition of another child, now a toddler.

She has also been my underwear model, and assisted me with the many tasks required to run a thoroughbred breeding facility. She has spent several summers working in the sweatshop, as well as time during non-paid for vacations, after work, and weekends.

Kitty is an intelligent, capable, dedicated, and personable young bird. She is always quick on her feet, with sensible reactions in all the circumstances I've seen her in. I feel confident in saying that she is capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and maturity, and she has a great set of norks.

Pretty much what Kix put.

Say they are lovely if they are, say they are a tyrant if they are.

I had to have one for something. Can't remember what. Might have been to get added as a minor to a shotgun license?

That's the only thing I can think of.

It to anyone who has a concern

Bertie Thunderpocket

I am willing to know him most, to provide character references personal hang up my butt or people.

I had the pleasure to know Bertie several years, undinting, he aristocracy always straight until now vigorously are ready to provide fast and in order to help to display the characteristics of a gentleman always at that time. House, without being flashy Zu man, he was in charge you do not control it, and go out generous, flambouyant, without separation without secret.

To know many of his fellow, I am a woman and man - embraced in terms of them. In order to find the time and the other idle activities of joy one some of my Bertie, of his colleagues, relax always tying to mop up the mess after, there have been cases when our stone occurs .

There is doubt that it is an asset like any stick of Anaheim and organization, I'll make sure the success of the investment he is what I started.

[Genuine output from a fairly silly character reference wot I wrote, then ran through Google Translate, first to Korean, then from Korean to Japanese, then back to English from Japanese.]
