Very true and still can not come to terms at deleting his name off Skype or any other program. See I told you that I was a snag.

Yes, Sparks is still missed. Seeing the picture again caused the tears to flow. I know he is in the best place he can be, better than what he had here in the end, but I still miss him, his wit, his humor, his kindness...

The music on Saturday was great Tom. if you enjoy trad jazz that is. The band was Rod Mason's Hot five. Superb musicians all and the banjo player was amazing. It was 3+ hours of virtually non stop toe tapping, all lubricated well by a fair amount of pop,most enjoyable.

Never forgotten only misplaced in time that we call old age.

th_lmao1-vi.gif th_lmao1-vi.gif les how right they certainly were a conversation stopper.

i remember mike and I going out one evening just before i returned home. we went and samples some of the local beers and one in particular i remember was a stout which was about 6% to 8% can't quite recall it's name but i'm sure it was ???? beast or other.

later we went into the dinning area and had ribeye steak. if you can remember mike's hair? it was white and unruly and often looked like a halo with the light behind him lolol. well, we sat and ate or meal along with another couple of beers, as we sat there there was a couple of young pretty women kept passing and smiling at us and i thought that mike had some unknown children then the smiles turned into waves and smiles which was baffling both of us until i said look at us mike, i'm sitting here with a shaven head, a tash in a pink shirt and you are sitting there with white hair that looks like a curly perm they probably think that we are two queens on a date then almost choked with laughter..

great memory :thumbsupp:

Yep memories that time will never erase mate so glad to have known him albet just on site but his personality came through. As said? When on skype he did not say much but could always tell he was on line with those dinging bloody clocks LOL
