Tim, I purchased a 'spare' calendar when there were concerns that the sales were low. If yours is damaged beyond repair you are welcome to that if you want it?

Thanks for that but it all straightened out OK, it was just bloody annoying, think it was one of those holiday relief type postmen as I've not seen him before.

I should stress that the pictures come from the Google 'Tribute album', and are by various contributors, I tried to capture the sprit of Mike in the selection, but also with an eye to quality.

I think that the greatest contribution has come from all of you when you ordered a copy (or copies), and made sure that it covered it's costs, and left a surplus. I will let you know how much goes to charity once everything has settled down.

Ten tenths has not let Mike down.

Mine arrived this morning. Congratulations to all involved and I hope it has raised a bit of money in Mike's memory.

Sure. We used to talk in public or privately, illustrating our thoughts by pictures, souvenirs or songs. Johny Cash once said "A man dies two times. One when he stops breathing and two when the last person forgets him".
Hope Mike will appreciate this song, the word "trumpet" is a reference to Weber carbs' I'm sure:

Monday will be the last posting day for calendars, aimed to arrive in time for Christmas so any last orders, gat on it!

There may be a few available early in the New Year if you need to find a present for someone you forgot

I think we cam all be pleased that well over the 100 have been sold, let's make it a 'sell out',

Bob.

Pleased to report the Cutty Sark must have docked with my calendar, and the postie came with it by special delivery at lunchtime today, handed to me at the door in pristine condition, not a fold or crease anywhere.

Looks superb, and is now in my office in pride of place.

Thanks to all who contributed in any way. Great job all.
