Today, so far away here in India, we had very sad news that our beautiful friend and mate, JOHN BOSWELL VINE died at Pt. Broughton.
VINESY was the funniest, driest man on earth. Also the wickedest! He was a legend in his lifetime and will be remembered by everyone who knew him as a great, great guy.
Vinesy was never the same man after his gorgeous wife, our beautiful friend Ann, died and I think he may have died of a broken heart.
Vinesy and my dog Baggins were the best of mates and Vinesy used to take Baggins for a ride in the Council Rubbish truck all over town showing her where all the best gear was!! No-one was surprised when later ,Baggins would be caught bringing crap home from all over town.
We love you JOHN BOSWELL VINE and will miss you dearly.
