I have just read the bad news.
I had been expecting it for a while but hoping it would wait for considerably longer.
Kevin first appeared here on Rambles back in July ’12 and was a regular ever since. I loved his comments – pithy, funny and wise.
A year ago, almost to the day we set up his own site. It sat there quietly for a while doing nothing. He played around with it but needed a drop of encouragement to actually publish something.
Naturally I never met Kevin but we corresponded regularly by mail. I only spoke to him the once when Frank was setting up his Smokey Drinky Bar and we were doing some testing – a three-way call with Frank, Kevin and myself.
I will miss him. He was one of the cornerstones of the group that has built up around Rambles and his own posts were always worth a read.
I like to think of him now sitting at a beach bar supping on his favourite tipple and enjoying a peaceful smoke.
