    Just enjoyed a very pleasant visit from Varadero.
    Kudos for driving our 30 mile cul-de-sack to get here.

    And thank you Nick for the hospitality, best tea and biscuits ever, the views over the submarine build halls in the low sunshine driving out of town were impressive, so much more impressive than Connecticut... wink wink...

    My condolences and sincere sympathies to his whole family and friends.

    He helped me behind the scenes when I was building my pool.

    Thanks Bobby and farewell.

    DAMN
    Man that is some crushing news


    May the road rise up to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the hollow of his hand
