Into every life

This little corner of the blogging community is one brave spirit less today. The man who wrote the highly amusing blog from New Zealand ‘Rest Area 300m’, known to his on line chums as ‘Dodderyoldfart’ a.k.a. Simon Lindsay died suddenly last night.

The news was passed to me in an e-mail from James Richards, University lecturer, who runs the ‘Work Blogging’ web site from his base at Heriot Watt University.

Simon, or ‘Dof’ as I knew him, was a man of unrecognised comic genius. Who else would salute his friends by naming potholes after them? All I can think of to say is “God speed, you old tinker.” Heaven must really need some serious astral potholes filling. Well, they’ve got the right man for the job. God bless.

Regards

Bill

Sadly I never knew the man existed... however a visit to his blog via the link you provided suggests he was much as you describe...sic transit etc

Thanks to NeeNaw's link, I'd been an enthusiastic follower of his blog for some time. His personality shone through his posts, crafted words and pictures that could make you guffaw. I will miss him.

Don't you dare give us a similar shock.

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
