Bloody hell I've just been talking about Con not an hour ago having a beer down the road with a friend. A mate of his we know has had a skiing accident in Denver this week, not fatal but sever brain damage sadly.

I also think about Con at random times Sean, its almost a year since you phoned me. He was such a proper nice bloke Mark, his family were a credit to him but I'm sure that worked both ways.

Are we having a secret ballot for this years recipient of Con's Red Caliper Award???[/quote]

I thought the idea was the current year holder would nominate the next recipient?

just did a refresh on my kitchen and moved Con's order of service that had been sitting on the window sill to look at sometimes, made me smile and be sad at the same time......

I know its daft, But my order of service for Con is tucked behind the pax seat in the Elise. That's where it slipped as we were getting in the car after the funeral, so that's were its stayed. He gets to have a ride in a Lotus every day that way :)
