Sic transit gloria mundi

Have a look at my blog-roll on the left there; one of my regular reads is "Rest Area 300". I've just learned that the author has died. Posting as "Doddery old fart", his sense of humour and engaging stories were one of my emotional lifelines to New Zealand. Like many of the commentors on his final post, I felt that I knew him without having met him in person. My heart goes out to his friends and family.

Vale, Simon.

Like you, I'm going to miss Doddery. There was just something about his site that was so "kiwi" that I can well believe he was a life line to your homeland. I loved his humour and his images and because of that enjoyed sending other folk his way knowing that they would soak up a little of what it's like to be a NZer.
