We were both lucky to have met him in person.

BE just isn’t the same without Ray. No one can ever take his place.

Banned for your humour? Or for getting embroiled in politics?

Jesus Christ. Facebook ban? What kind of degeneracy did you commit to get banned from that cesspit?

I will never forget that pic of him swimming in his pool naked. That bum has etched on my memory forever.
Seriously though, I miss him and wonder how Joycee is doing.

Not much of a challenge then?

On topic, did Ray ever send you the Christmas card emails from he and Joycee? I was looking back on my laptop to see if I managed to save any of their Christmas pics, usually with a holidays/firearms theme I was going to put them up here. But that was several computers ago so not everything makes it over.

Ray was larger than life. A big personality with big brain and huge heart. I believe we met him in his prime --- when he was most happy and brilliant and generous with all of us who were his friends.

I cant say if he did or not because my memory is crap, he sent me a lot of crap and Christmas is crap so I try to blot it out.

Agree with everything youve said ... I miss the old boy he was a one off.
